Don Jr. And Eric Claim Their Father Lost Arizona Due To A Bias Against…Sharpie Pens?!

Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric, are trying desperately to push an absurd conspiracy theory that their father lost the state of Arizona to Joe Biden because some of the president’s supporters used Sharpie pens to fill out their absentee ballots and that led to those ballots being rejected by election officials.
