8. K.O.'s big problem is that he relentlessly exposes bullshit.
Everybody loves that. Or at least they love it until it's THEIR bullshit that's being exposed. Then they turn on him.

K.O. has not changed his approach. It's just a case of people who can dish it out to their opponents, but can't take the same treatment when it's aimed at their own personal sacred cows.

I say this as someone who has not yet decided who to vote for, so I have no ax to grind either way.
