A new generation of immune-boosting therapies has been hailed as nothing short of revolutionary, shrinking tumors and extending lives. When late-stage cancer patients run out of other options, some doctors are increasingly nudging them to give immunotherapy a try. But that advice is now coming with unintended consequences. Doctors who counsel immunotherapy, experts say, are postponing…
Trump suggests Rand Paul needs to apologize to him -- calls the Kentucky senator 'a different kind of guy'
Energy lobbyist Mike Carey, who was supported by former President Donald Trump, won the GOP primary race in a special House election in an Ohio district Tuesday. After the win, Trump released a statement attacking Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul for daring to throw money behind a candidate who opposed Carey.
"Do you think Rand Paul will apologize for spending nearly $1 Million on another candidate in Ohio's 15th District congressional race after I had already endorsed Mike Carey?" Trump's statement read.

Trump went on to say that Paul "is a different kind of guy, but I like him a lot anyway, and I'm proud to have endorsed him when he ran."
"Do you think he learned his lesson?" Trump said.
As The Hill points out, Carey was a virtual unknown before Trump's endorsement. He beat out around a dozen other primary candidates eyeing the seat of GOP Rep. Steve Stivers, who retired to run the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
Richard Trumka, the longtime president of the AFL-CIO labor organization, had died suddenly and unexpectedly.
Two sources told Politico the 72-year-old Trumka had died, and one source said he apparently had suffered a heart attack either Wednesday evening or Thursday morning.
AFL-CIO staffers were notified of his death Thursday morning.
Trumka had led the federation, which represents more than 12.5 million workers, for more than a decade and has been a close ally of President Joe Biden's White House.
‘Paranoid’ Marjorie Taylor Greene has a bizarre freak-out after the NY Times asks her for comment – and the internet can’t stop laughing
Critics mocked Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday, after she spun a wild conspiracy theory alleging that the New York Times is working with Twitter to have her banned from the platform.
Greene posted a screen shot of an email someone on her staff apparently received from Davey Alba, a technology reporter at the Times who covers online disinformation.
In his email, Alba pointed to one of Greene's tweets from Wednesday, in which she falsely claimed that COVID-19 vaccines are causing miscarriages and other problems among pregnant women.
"Twitter is likely to take enforcement action on Ms. Greene's account for coronavirus information. It would be her fourth strike, meaning she would have one strike to go before potentially being permanently suspended from the platform. Would Ms. Greene want to respond to this in a statement?" Alba wrote in the email.
Greene wrote above the image of the email: "How would the @nytimes know that my @Twitter account is about to be suspended? My account is NOT suspended. What kind of relationship does the NYT and Twitter have? Do they coordinate suspending people like me and news stories? Is someone paying for that? Why?"
Here's how Twitter reacted:
