  1. Oh, thank you Governor Murphy for taking care of us because we do not have the ability to take care of ourselves. We are not educated properly in NJ, hence we need our leaders to take control of our every move inside and outside our homes. We don’t need for you to explain the science behind your mandates; we totally trust you. Happy Thanksgiving.
