Not So Benevolent Dictators

Bizarro April 23, 2017
Which reminds me of this line from The Last King of Scotland:
Idi Amin: You dare try to poison me? After everything I gave you? I am Idi Amin! President-for-life and ruler of Uganda. I am the father of Africa.
Nicholas Garrigan: You're a child. You have the mind and ego of an angry, spoiled, uneducated child. And that's what makes you so fucking scary.

Idi Amin was subject to childish whims and he had no patience for rational argument. If he took a dislike to someone he might, on a whim, drop the hammer on him, or more likely, have one of henchmen do it.
