Was bragging about having sex with underage fans on his book tour great? Was pushing a woman from a moving car great? Was drunkenly throwing a table at a woman great? Was contemplating having someone murdered great?Was making up stories out of whole cloth great? Was cashing in on his performative male ally guilt great?

He had charm. He could say great things. Don’t conflate that with having actual character.
