A large crowd assembled to watch Vice President Mike Pence deliver his Republican National Convention speech at Maryland's Fort McHenry on Wednesday night. There wasn't a mask in sight.

"As we did last night in the Rose Garden, it's worth pointing out, anybody around the president and the first lady gets tested, the COVID-19 test," Fox News' Bret Baier told viewers after Pence had finished speaking. "We assume everybody in this area did. We don't have that nailed down, but we assume that's the case."

Turns out, that assumption was incorrect.
