I'm sorry, but this is the biggest piece of lying horseshit puff I've ever read.....really! The idea that these two spend any time together that isn't scripted for the media is just horseshit, let alone this bloated hippo going swimming or getting Slick Willie's nose out of a line of cocaine long enough to take a frickin' walk. Don't make me laugh.
Your comparison is perhaps more correct than you realize. Hippos are extremely dangerous, yet most people think of them as just these huge, fat, harmless water creatures.
