The social media and CNN make him look way worse than he actually is. - TheHabsFan

The most corrupt politician in modern times. It appears these lists are heavily biased toward deplorables who are unable to think for themselves and are Fox News (fake news) mouthpieces and/or racist. All you have to do is look at the growing list of indictments and criminals surrounding his cartel. Putins puppet.
