President Donald J. Trump’s opponents on the left aren’t the only ones angry over his choice of words.
State Senator Mike Doherty (R-23), Trump’s 2016 N.J. state director, today objected to Trump taking the name of the Lord in vain at a North Carolina rally.
“This is unacceptable language and is highly offensive to many of his most ardent supporters,” Doherty told InsiderNJ.
“He may be assuming that his supporters will blindly follow him anywhere and down any path that he takes, but that is not the case,” added the Warren-based New Jersey senator, the state’s leading movement conservative. “I hope this was a one-time mistake that will not be repeated.”
