The leader of the German far-right, Tino Chrupalla, has gone viral after making a fool of himself when asked by a child. The minor, who served as an interviewer for a program on the ZDF network, asked the leader of the extreme right for his favorite poem, to which Chrupalla did not know what to answer. “I’d have to think about it first. I can’t think of any,” he said.
