The men who have been threatening democracy here and in the world at large, are finding themselves in all manner of legal problems at the moment.
At home, Jacob Zuma keeps losing his court cases to have corruption, fraud and racketeering charges against him permanently dropped.
He’s been fighting this for some time now, despite always maintaining that he would relish his day in court.
So then why not seize the opportunity to finally clear his name?
Instead, he is exhausting every single legal avenue to avoid the courts, which makes me wonder about his proclaimed innocence.
He’s got a few more legal moves left, after which that day in court will come, whether he’s ready or not.
Meanwhile, Britain’s colourful prime minister is also surrounded by legal issues that’s stalling the promises he made to his constituents, the most bold of course being Brexit.
Alongside US President Donald Trump, Boris Johnson is the current poster boy of nationalism, wanting Britain to urgently sever economic ties with the European Union.
But the goal post for his threatened deal keeps shifting and, from the looks of things, may now only happen next month.
Considering how things have been going, it will probably keep moving indefinitely, until Britons figure out a way to get rid of Boris.
On the other side of the pond, Trump is busy losing his last remaining marbles at the very real possibility of being impeached before Christmas.
He has been paying very close attention to what has turned out to be the biggest congressional hearing in a generation.
And while he has been trying to put a positive spin on it, the information that has come out has painted him into a very corrupt corner.
He responded to the impeachment hearings by barring his immediate White House aides and inner circle from testifying, allowing them to ignore subpoenas.
Again, one is left to wonder why a man who shouts his innocence into TV cameras on a daily basis, doesn’t want his day in court.
Irrespective, there’s a very real chance of an impeachment trial in the American senate early next year.
Americans are finally reaching the end of their tether with him.
A CNN poll shows that 50% of Americans now want Trump both impeached and removed from office.
