A man who told Arizona Republic reporters he was on his way to attend a rally for GOP candidate Donald Trump was distracted by a protester wearing a donkey costume.
Trump had two events scheduled for Phoenix on Saturday, 12News reports. The confrontation occurred at Encanto Park in the Arizona capitol at a Somos America event.
“Donkey boy, I’m coming for you man, take off that mask!” the Trump supporter says. “Are you Hillary Clinton? Who are you under there?”
The man then gets in the protester’s face and continues to aggressively question him.
“Take off the mask, Hillary,” he says. “Is that a burka? Is that a burka? Is that a burka? I’m just asking is that a burka. Who hates gays more than Muslims?”
One woman responds, “Christians!” The man in the donkey costume points at the Trump supporter.
A burka is a body-covering veil worn by women in some Muslim cultures.
The Trump supporter then begins ranting about guns and Muslims, while a protester calls him a racist.

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.
