I’ll leave it to you to find a name  that fits this cameo (m or f - by all means be ‘woke’ and discount the gender related pronouns)

They felt he could be trusted with their fate
With comfortable words to free from blame
He told a tale to which they could relate
Where guiltless victimhood could be their claim

With bleeding heart he said: “I feel your pain 
You sorry creatures need us for your aid
From being active cause, you can abstain
And leave it all to us - forget free trade”

“The freedom that we bring is to receive
The many things of which you have a need
We’ll take from those who have; no ‘by-your-leave’
Just give to me your trust; your power concede”

His smile was so sincere: transparent look
Who knew that he was such a thumping crook

Now I'm gonna guess that this could be any of the candidates currently running for President… LOL. Thanks, Geoffrey. Cheers, Melania, Ivanka and Jared
