NOT A DEMI GOD…A DEMIGOGUE

Definition of Demigogue:
A leader who attempts to gain a following by appealing to the emotions and prejudices of people in order to advance his or her political purposes

The modern significance of a demagogue lies in its pejorative sense, as the leader of a mob, with the implication that those who rouse the rabble always do so for ignoble purposes.
