Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani lashed out at MSNBC’s Katy Tur when she asked him to condemn the Donald Trump supporter who yelled “assassinate that bitch” at a rally this week.
During an election day interview with Giuliani, Tur recalled that she “heard a man scream when Gov. [Mike] Pence was talking about Hillary Clinton, ‘assassinate that b-word.'”
“That’s not fair,” the Trump surrogate interrupted. “I was in Denver the day after they threw a rock through the headquarters.”
Tur pressed Giuliani to address the assassination remark, but he continued to object to the premise of her question.
“Mayor, a man said assassinate that b-word!” she exclaimed. “Why do we hear that at Trump rallies?”
“Because you hear the same thing at Hillary Clinton rallies,” Giuliani replied.
The MSNBC host, however, pointed out that there were no reports of that language being used at Clinton rallies.
“I want to show you the unfairness of CNBC,” Giuliani insisted.
“This is MSNBC,” Tur noted.
“Let me answer,” the former mayor snapped. “The reality is that the Hillary Clinton campaign has involved itself in more violence and paid for it than anything going on in the Trump campaign, but you don’t report on it.”
“Those are unsubstantiated claims,” Tur observed.
“Thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars to thugs!” Giuliani continued. “To go make it look like the Trump campaign had violent people.”
“We can move on,” Tur sighed.

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.
