An unhinged man on Friday screamed at the top of his lungs at Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) while accusing her of being a “fraud” who is fond of Iran.
In a video posted by Mike LaCrosse, a reporter with Boston-based news station WBZ, a man attending a Warren event can be seen standing up and screaming at the Massachusetts senator while campaign staffers try to rein him in.
“You’re a fraud!” he screams at Warren. “I’m a minister! I help rape victims and you’re lying!”
Warren tried to diffuse tension in the room by calmly saying to the man, “It’s good to see you.”
“It’s good to see you!” he shouted back angrily. “I hope you resign!”
He then started to walk away, and attendees at the Warren event started chanting the senator’s name in a show of support.
However, the man wasn’t done just yet, and yelled out, “She likes Iran!”
According to LaCrosse, the man was subsequently removed from the event.

Food safety groups warn of looming zoonotic pandemic, blast USDA’s new slaughter plant regulation
"Self-regulation when it comes to animal movement, slaughter, and meat inspection is bad news."
Food safety advocates warned Monday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's USDA newly implemented rules for pig slaughter are setting the stage for a potential public health disaster—including the possibility of another infectious disease that could come from animals.
At issue is the New Swine Inspection System (NSIS), which the USDA finalized in October. Touted by the federal agency as a "modernization" effort, the regulation sparked immediate fears and lawsuits by watchdog groups over its elimination of kill speed limits and weakening of the inspection system.

US begins blood tests for coronavirus immunity: reports
The United States has begun taking blood samples from across the country to determine the true number of people infected with the coronavirus, using a test that works retrospectively, according to reports.
The new tests are based on serological surveys, which differ from the nasal swabs used to determine if someone currently has the virus.
Instead, they look for whether certain antibodies are present in the blood which shows that the person fought and then recovered from the illness -- even if they never showed symptoms.
These tests are seen as key to gradually easing lockdown, by allowing those who have proven immunity to re-enter society.
