A lot of Republicans are really not happy with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz today after he prominently declined to endorse Donald Trump on Wednesday night.
Pro-Trump pundit Ann Coulter, as you might imagine, didn’t mince any words in her denunciation of Cruz, whom she believed committed career suicide by not bending the knee to The Donald.
“I’m beginning to understand why Ted Cruz has been hated by everyone every place he’s ever been from kindergarten to the United States Senate,” she said.
She then explained that she was very surprised that Sen. Marco Rubio endorsed Trump before Cruz ever did, as Cruz during the primaries was much closer to Trump’s positions on issues like immigration than Rubio was.
“Rubio comes out and as tepid as it may be, does endorses Donald Trump,” she said. “It’s Cruz who is a little bitch who can’t get over it.”
Cruz said on Thursday morning that he’s not prepared to endorse someone who still hasn’t apologized for calling his wife ugly and hinting his father may have been involved in killing President Kennedy.

Checking blood for coronavirus antibodies – 3 questions answered about serological tests and immunity
Coronavirus testing in the United States is moving into a new phase as scientists begin looking into people’s blood for signs they’ve been infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This technique is called serological testing.
Virologist Daniel Stadlbauer helped develop a serological test to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and helped transfer it from the research lab to the clinical setting. Epidemiologist Aubree Gordon regularly uses serological assays in her research studies on influenza and dengue fever. She’s now established serological testing for SARS-CoV-2 in her research lab.
