When you call everybody bad, then really what you are saying is that nobody is bad. Such views just advance cynicism where nobody will care about what Trump does because they think he is just the same as everybody else. This is a toxic attitude. One must recognize that Donald Trump is orders of magnitude worse than your average American billionaire. He is a league of his own.

As an Apple fan I really hated Microsoft back in the day and was not exactly a fan of Bill Gates. But Gates has never been a con man. He has been ruthless and immoral but never engaged in blatant lies and deceit. Sure his products may not have been great but Microsoft actually created products that made people’s lives better. Trump never made anything that improved anything. He is just a hustler and a con-man.
