“The snake oil peddler became a stock character in Western movies: a travelling “doctor” with dubious credentials, selling some medicine (such as snake oil) with boisterous marketing hype, often supported by pseudo-scientific evidence, typically bogus. To enhance sales, an accomplice in the crowd (a “shill”) would often “attest” the value of the product in an effort to provoke buying enthusiasm. The “doctor” would prudently leave town before his customers realized that they had been cheated. This practice is also called “grifting” and its practitioners “grifters”.
The practice of selling dubious remedies for real (or imagined) ailments still occurs today, albeit with some updated marketing techniques.

This guy was a virtual unknown with no experience and radical ties throughout his life.

The election was a farce.
He knew he would win. It was signed, sealed and delivered.
