Former President Bill Clinton did not call voters who don’t want New Jersey to be a sanctuary state “deplorable” yesterday when he was holding Phil Murphy’s hand in Bergen County yesterday. He said we are stark raving crazy and prone to foam at the mouth, according to Politico’s coverage.
The hope is that the message can “set enough people on fire,” “get them foaming at the mouth” and “drive them stark raving crazy” so they head to the polls, Clinton said.
Clinton probably didn’t mean the kind of foaming at the mouth that memories of his presidency usually evoke.
When Murphy introduced Clinton at his rally in Paramus yesterday, he shouted to the crowd, “Everybody, get it up for the 42nd president of the United States, Bill Clinton!”
One of the candidates for governor of New Jersey is stark raving crazy. One isn’t.
