The German woman apparently spent a whopping 30,000 euros ($35,000) on her ink so far, and doesn’t plant to stop anytime soon.

While there are still pending legal challenges from President Trump’s campaign, a year that went south early on when the Chinese plague came calling seemed to reach its low point when a complicit media rushed to call the 2020 election in favor of their guy, Joe Biden — who may or may not be in the early stages of senility.
