‘Worst pain I’ve ever felt’: Diner employees in shock after getting maced by angry anti-masker

Published

on

Three employees at a Missouri pizza diner got maced earlier this week by a customer who was angry that they were asked to wear a face mask as a precondition of being served.

Local news station KMOV reports that a group of maskless people went into the Incredible Pizza Company in South St. Louis County on Sunday, where they were asked to leave because of their refusal to wear masks.

Security camera footage shows that, as they were being escorted out of the building, one of the people turned around and maced three employees in the face.

“I have blisters all over my tongue right now it’s pretty painful even right now,” said Laura Hackworth, one of the workers at the pizza diner. “Once I was sprayed, I knew instantly what had happened and it was the worst pain I had felt in my life, just excruciating, burning obviously in my nose and mouth.”

Managing general partner April Gamache tells KMOV that the maskless patrons were being abusive toward staff even before one of them started macing workers.

“Point punches were thrown, I was shoved, my cashier was shoved, we were spit on, we were ridiculed,” she said.

Police have told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they have issued a summons for assault to a 27-year-old woman whom they have identified as the person in the security footage spraying employees.

"In the spirit of RBG, we will not allow a double standard in how our Congress deals with late-term Supreme Court appointments."

Taking Sen. Lindsey Graham up on his 2016 advice to use his words opposing the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland against him should a Supreme Court seat open in the final year of a Republican president's first term, a group of demonstrators gathered outside of the South Carolina Republican's Washington, D.C. residence early Monday morning demanding that he oppose the filling of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat until after the November election.

Trump makes fun of Kamala Harris’ name during extended Fox & Friends rant

Published

President Donald Trump made fun of Sen. Kamala Harris' name during an appearance on "Fox & Friends."

The president called in to the show he apparently watches most mornings for a wide-ranging interview, where the hosts asked how he'll fare against Joe Biden in next week's debate.

"Well, look, I think he's a professional," Trump said. "I don't know if he's all there, but I think he's a professional. I have to assume that he's a professional and that he can debate. I don't understand what's going on, he doesn't seem to be answering questions, and he can't answer questions, and much worse a little while ago when he was on the stage with the Democrats, he couldn't do well. He did okay with Bernie [Sanders], it was sort of a tie. It was nothing great. I always say it wasn't Winston Churchill, but it was okay. He was horrible when he was debating the Democrats."

Lindsey Graham ‘is in danger of an upset’ loss: top elections forecaster

Published

on

Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) re-election campaign looks increasingly in peril, according to one of America's top elections forecasters.

The latest update from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics claims that Graham today "is in greater danger of an upset" than he was just weeks ago, which has led to a ratings change in Graham's race against Democratic rival Jamie Harrison from "likely R" to "leans R."

Among other things, the Center for Politics points to Harrison's gaudy fundraising numbers as too big to ignore.
