New Jerseyeans are fuming over a Boston Globe hit piece that mocks President Trump for vacationing in New Jersey — “a state that conjures spray tans, Snooki, muscle shirts, ‘The Sopranos,’ traffic slowdowns, and toll plazas.”
Trump touched down in the Garden State Friday for 17 days of rest and relaxation at his golf course in bucolic Bedminster — where residents scoffed at the suggestion that their tony township is any less regal than Martha’s Vineyard or Kennebunkport, Maine.

Workers at research nonprofit New Jersey Policy Perspective dropped the mic with a photo of them tubing on the Delaware River with beers in hand.
“@NJPolicy crew after work on the Delaware last night. It was awful,” tweeted Sheila Reynertson.
Jerseyans noted how charming — and wealthy — Trump’s chosen destination is.
“Dude … he’s staying at his private golf club in one of the wealthiest areas in one of the nation’s wealthiest states. But yea lol New Jersey,” tweeted Haddonfield native Matthew Nussbaum, who reeled…
