1) I didn't know Trump was that old.
2) I thought Ronny died shortly after his presidency.

They've already changed a few things on that chart
» Canada changed from ‘personal freedom’ to ‘doughnuts’ (reason: more recent data) – Mar 2017
» Turkey ‘jailed journalists’ added alongside ‘Twitter censorship’ (reason: more recent data) – Mar 2017
» China changed from ‘jailed journalists’ to ‘hackers’ (reason: more recent data) – Mar 2017
» South Africa changed from Death to number 1 for Platinum (reason: more recent data just released) – Dec 2016
» Canada upgraded to ‘personal freedom’ from ‘Facebook addiction’ (reason: better source) – Dec 2016

Why do we get to be SPAM EMAILS?

I mean, it's more okay than Jailed Journalists but I figure we must be more betterest at something else.

... I'm having a hard time coming up with an example though.
