The look on Zelensky's face at the UN when his new friend tells him they will be getting along with Putin soon.

Gee, he was smiling before that.

Yeah, well Putin is a winner. And most of the leaders on the west are losers.

Go figure.

Putin is a thief who tears his own nation down to enrich himself and his gang. Trump is the same.

And Zelensy has just been invited to go deep sea fishing with his new friends.

Zelensy is a kid caught between two school bullies.

The difference is Putin is incredibly popular, Trump is not. He's a wannabe.

Al Capone was "tremendously popular" in his time and place as was Adolph Hitler. What's your point, "comrade"?

I guess that people follow people who are popular? It's pretty stupid to compare Putin to Hitler.

Hitler was very popular in his own nation. Your criteria of best is popularity after all.

Stalin was very popular too, those who thought different died along with their family and village even if they were only thought to think different. Who will say that glorious leader is not a great guy?

And yeah I can understand how hardline right wing nutcases would want that everywhere.

There isn't a requirement to be "good guy" to be a "great leader" Trump and Putin both aren't "good guys" but only one of them is a "great leader" and absent any "great leaders" in the west the world will follow Putin.

Is Putin a "great leader"?

The thing I like most about democracy is that the "leader" (whether good or bad) goes away peacefully at the end of his period in office.

His people think he is.
Putin was popular at one time, I am not so sure about now.
Stalin seems to be enjoying a resurgence in Russia, but then Russia did win the WW2 under him.

Trump is a nothing, but a divisive and dangerous nothing.

His people think he is.
History suggests that that is not sufficient evidence.

"Popular" yes. "Great" ?

Is Putin a "great leader"?

When your criteria for great is popular-or-else in your tightly controlled domain.

Hence the compares to other dictators who had goon-enforced popularity.

What Trump is about is "we can have that here too, our very own Oligarchy, what say?".

Hitler had Krupp and buddies behind him and Trump has Koch and friends pushing the same.

Putin is less popular because he figuratively eats people, even supporters, but it's too late for them.

Yeah that look on Zelensy's face! He's riding the tiger and just found out that the tiger is taking him to the jackal.
