Why do people think that when a rich person like Gates gives to charity, that automatically makes him a good person (pls read details)?

He may be doing it for show, to look good to the world. I'm not saying he's a bad person but just because someone gives to charity esp. when they know everyone else will know, doesn't make them a good person. They could still not care and lack empathy. They could still secretly be a narcissist or even a psychopath. 

The guy has so much influence on world decisions etc. Any clever person with that much power will try to look like the good guy in the eyes of the public. Again, not saying he's a bad person. But I wouldn't straight away call him good either because I do not know him personally. Yet people esp. on here are praising him endlessly.

    He's a showboat.

    That's why.

    He needs to let everyone know.
