There is a growing trend on social media today. Plenty of Americans are beginning to see Vladimir Putin as a hero and the president they only wish they had.

In fact, quite the opposite.

Beyond the bravado, Americans are beginning to see a man and a leader who cares about his country and his people much more than our own leaders do us. Shared photos instigated such a transition, but the true metamorphosis resulted from the sown distrust between President Biden and his administration on one side and the American people on the other. It left many wanting for a leader just like Putin.
