Two New Jersey gym owners who are going to court for breaking into their own Covid-restricted business got into a heated 15-minute battle with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Tuesday night over mask-wearing, President Donald Trump’s Covid-19 response, and statistics around the virus.

“They have violated everyone’s constitutional rights,” co-owner Frank Trumbetti said direct toward New Jersey officials. “We all have the right to make a living. We all have the right to actually do what we want to do as Americans. We are promised liberty. And they have actually put such oppressive restrictions on us that it’s just unacceptable to us.”

As the two owners described how they would keep their gym safe, co-owner Ian Smith said, “I would argue that the gym is a place to keep people safe, this is a place where people come to build their immune systems, the strength of their body on the outside and inside.”

“Our governor has allowed outdoor fighting. You can actually full contact fight outside. I can punch you in the stomach,” Trumbetti said to Cuomo at one point. “You’re an athlete, you’re one of the tough guys out there, if we’re sparring outside and I punch you in the stomach and I knock your mouthpiece out, you’re gonna spit in my face. But Governor [Phil] Murphy says you can’t get Covid that way.”

Then, the three began arguing about specific Covid-19 statistics, including death rates in the state. As Cuomo tried to interject, Trumbetti yelled, “That’s the facts!”
