Governor Abbott is still waiting on an apology from President Biden after the president called Texas’ move to end the mask mandate in March “Neanderthal thinking.” In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, he says the president was 100 percent wrong, as case numbers didn’t go up after the mask mandate ended.

Citing an industry wide-uptick in unruly passengers, Southwest and American Airlines are waiting to begin serving alcohol on flights, which were suspended because of the pandemic. American says it is waiting until the federal mask mandate on airplanes ends. KERA has more.
