NJ Gov. Phil Murphy passes the buck on decision to stick sick people in nursing homes
Phil Murphy, the governor of New Jersey, went on interview on Sunday and stated basically that “it’s tragic” but that the state government is not to blame for people getting sick and dying from COVID.

“So it was not enough just to separate the residents, but to separate the staff. Did some operators not take our advice? It’s possible, and if they did, if they did not, they deserve to pay a price for that.”
As of this writing, we have not been able to directly verify the governor’s statements that they were insisting on separating staff as well as patients in nursing homes due to the pandemic.

Hope someone can confirm or deny this. I sure don’t remember it. I do remember them attacking the observant Jewish nursing home owner who’s rabbi counseled him not to let the sick back into his nursing home.
If the governor’s statement can not be confirmed, then he’s almost as bad as Cuomo.
