Slanted title to article.

This slant added to the title of the article to call this man a” friend” of President Obama’s. It reminds me of the picture of President Jimmy Carter’s wife Rosalynn shaking hands with John Wayne Gacy; they weren’t “friends” either. It seems like a underhanded jab at the President.
