Boston Globe takes jab at Trump, New Jersey

President Trump spent the first full day of his working vacation at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Boston Globe took the president to task for choosing the Garden State to spend his time off.

President Trump arrived in New Jersey for his 17-day vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, which inspired the Boston Globe to not only mention it, but label the state with a few choice words

The article, intended to call out President Trump for vacationing in New Jersey, ended up dragging everyone in the state along with it, calling New Jersey "a state that conjures spray tans, Snooki, muscle shirts, "The Sopranos", traffic jams and toll plazas,"

“We're regular people, we don't spray tan, well, some of us do, but most of us don't spray tan, we're a bunch of hard working people,” said one New Jersey resident.

New jersey governor Chris Christie defended the Garden State, tweeting, “Just another reason to ignore the Boston Globe!"

If Jersey resident Dominic Scaglione could re-write the article, he would say this about his home state: “It’s one of the most sophisticated, elegant, wonderful states with over 165 miles of shoreline, some of the greatest accomplishments commerce, industry, education- look at our universities and the people that have accomplished, all you have to do is look at the NJ Hall of Fame every year to make a determination to what this state is all about.”
