As Twitchy readers know, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy went on with Tucker Carlson and when asked about banning religious services in his state he said he ‘wasn’t thinking about the Bill of Rights when he did this’.
Because of course, he wasn’t.
Brit Hume lit him up:
He says consideration of the Bill of Rights is “above my pay grade.” He never says where he got the authority to overrule it. https://t.co/qtLWLW4hb6

Give him Hell, Brit.
On what AUTHORITY does ol’ Phil get to tell his constituents their religious services are banned?
Folks, it’s official, we have let this crap go too far.
It’s universal now. The constitution has finally become worthless. If it’s invalid then the entire governmental system is. So where does there authority derive from ?

Exactly !! As Paul Harvey always.. "And now you know…. the rest of the story" or at least the rest of the question

Didn't he, like all Governors, take an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States?

Better to ask for forgiveness than permission

Science Brit. Science overrules the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Unreal he said that.
You know what, it’s not. We’d like to think it is unreal but from what we’re seeing in this current environment it’s all too real.
Exactly! He danced around it because he knows he is wrong!!
