New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was heckled while having dinner at a restaurant with his family Saturday night.

A video circulating on social media showed at least two women hurling profanities at the Democratic governor while he was having dinner outdoors with his wife, Tammy, and four children.

“Hey, how ya doing?” a woman asks the governor in the video.

“Oh my God, Murphy, you are such a d—-,” a second woman says.

“You’re having fun with your family and in the meantime you’re having all other kind of bulls—t going on,” the first woman says.

“Holy s—-,” the second woman says.

When one of the governor’s sons asks the woman if she’s “a little too drunk,” she denies it. When he asks her to put a face mask on, she responds: “You can go f—- yourself, how’s that? You know why I don’t need a mask? Because there ain’t nothin’ f—-ing wrong with me.”

“You don’t have a mask on!” the second woman says.

“I like your Trump phone case,” one of the governor’s sons says. “Guess who Trump likes? He likes my dad.”

“No, he doesn’t like your dad,” one of the women responds.

As the video ended, Mrs. Murphy could be seen recording the women and the governor had put on a mask.

The confrontation came just several days after Mr. Murphy ordered residents to keep indoor gatherings to less than 10 people ahead of the holidays.

“We’re urging everybody to keep their Thanksgiving plans as small as possible because we know that indoor gatherings and homes are particularly dangerous places for COVID-19 to spread,” the governor said Monday. “The smaller the gathering is, the less likely it is that someone is infected and puts their loved ones at risk. It is that simple.”
