The Fox News morning show Fox & Friends visited a diner in New Jersey on Thursday where people who refused to wear masks slammed the Democratic National Convention.
Prior to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s Thursday night address, Fox News host Pete Hegseth made his first trip back to a diner since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
“We’re Americans, we’re free,” one woman named Donna explained to Hegseth. “We don’t want to be forced to wear a mask. We don’t want to be quarantined. We don’t want to be check-pointed [sic]. We don’t want any of that stuff. And we worry that if Donald Trump is not reelected, we’re going to lose all of that. And that’s what really scares us because after this, where do we go?”
“We’re loving life!” Donna added. “That’s all we want to do. We’re not telling anybody else that they shouldn’t do what they want to do. But don’t tell us what to do.”
Another woman who claimed to be a nurse insisted that the pandemic is “over.”
“The virus is over,” the woman said. “We’re over. We need to step away from the fear and we need to educate ourselves on how to get healthy. And I think that’s a big part of this presidential election right now.”
Other patrons accused the Democratic Party of being against the police and attempting to perpetrate “fraud” with mail-in ballots.
None of the diners that Hegseth spoke to wore masks or socially distanced themselves from other customers.

Lindsey Graham announces embattled Sen. Joni Ernst will vote for whomever Trump nominates to replace RBG
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday announced that GOP members of the body would be united in voting for whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.
“The nominee’s going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, as reported by The Washington Post's Aaron Blake.
If Graham is correct, that would mean that Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) would be backing the nomination, despite trailing Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield.
A Never-Trump Republican changed her mind — then crumbled when she tried to explain why
In a recent op-ed for the Washington Post, Republican Danielle Pletka declared that despite the fact that she refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016, she now feels compelled to support him in 2020. The piece quickly caught fire online, inspiring ridicule and sympathy from differing corners and triggering a surprising amount of discussion.
In one sense, it’s hard to see what the big deal was. The Post publishes opinion pieces in support of Trump frequently, and this one was not particularly special. Pletka herself is not a particularly notable figure. Like many op-eds, it was sloppy and unpersuasive, making huge leaps of reasoning and glossing over critical points in the argument. It didn’t take seriously any compelling counterarguments. It was, in other words, a mere display of partisan loyalty from a Republican who would prefer to be inside the tent than outside of it.
Here’s the doomsday scenario in Pennsylvania that could cost Joe Biden the election
On Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer walked through a potential voter error that could cost Joe Biden Pennsylvania — the exclusion of so-called "naked ballots," or mail-in ballots that aren't properly sealed in two layers of envelopes.
"The state Supreme Court in Pennsylvania, a critical battleground state that’s seen as increasingly likely to determine who wins the White House, last week ordered officials to throw out 'naked ballots' — mail ballots that arrive without inner 'secrecy envelopes,'" reported Jonathan Lai. "Pennsylvania uses a two-envelope mail ballot system: A completed ballot goes into a 'secrecy envelope' that has no identifying information, and then into a larger mailing envelope that the voter signs."
