After getting crushed in Monday night’s debate, Donald Trump slunk back to his safe space on “Fox and Friends,” where he was served a steady diet of softball questions.
Interestingly, he still managed to completely whiff on some of them.
If you want an example, look no further than when the “Fox and Friends” hosts asked Trump if Hillary Clinton was successful at getting under his infamously thin skin. Trump said that she generally didn’t succeed, although he did allow that he lost his cool a bit when she brought up the time when he cruelly mocked former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado as “Miss Piggy” because he thought she had gained weight.
Instead of merely letting it go at that, however, Trump instead decided to bash Machado for gaining weight.
“She was the worst we ever had — the worst, the absolute worst,” Trump said of Machado. “She was the winner and, you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. A real problem.”
Elsewhere on the segment, Trump denied sniffling during the debate, despite the fact that he was very audibly sniffling — instead, he once again insisted that the microphone they gave him was “very bad.”

‘Retaliation plain and simple’: Vaccine agency top Doc fired by Trump administration files whistleblower complaint
Dr. Rick Bright has retained an attorney and will be filing a whistleblower complaint after the Trump administration fired him from his position as head of the federal agency charged with developing a COVID-19 vaccine.

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.
