New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy lashed out at anti-vaccination protesters during a speech announcing the state’s extension of the eviction moratorium.
“You’ve lost your minds. You are the ultimate knuckleheads. And because of what you are saying and standing for, people are losing their life,” Murphy said to a crowd of anti-vaccination protesters attempting to interrupt the event.
The tense exchange came after Murphy encouraged those in attendance to get the coronavirus vaccine, saying the state was at “an inflection point in our fight, not just against the COVID pandemic, but also against the tremendous upheaval for thousands and thousands of New Jerseyans.”
