Phil Murphy criticized for ‘doing nothing for our state’

Recently, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy took part in a photo op where he met the President of Albania. Although this isn’t too unusual in terms of politics, the result was criticism within the comments. Here, his Instagram post was captioned: “Honored to meet with President of Albania, Bajram Begaj, today in Newark. The New Jersey National Guard has proudly supported Albania’s military for decades through a longstanding partnership. We’re eager to continue deepening our ties with the people of Albania.”

Although appearing fairly innocent in its nature, certain people weren’t happy with this meeting and let their feelings be heard. The full Instagram post can be seen below.

Responding to his post, one user named ColgateBiju commented: “But you still won’t meet with your constituents, the striking nurses at RWJ in New Brunswick, NJ.” Similarly, another said: “So? Haha. (He) does nothing for our state.”

These weren’t the only critical comments put towards Murphy either as many had similar grievances with him. In fact, some were too rude to reference again. Overall, the post garnered nearly 80 responses and in fairness, some were either neutral or positive. Nonetheless, this certainly highlights a contingent of New Jersey residents who aren’t happy with their governor. With Murphy set to run until 2026, it looks like those critical of him will have to grin and bear it for the time being.
