Snakeoil Swindler dies before he can truly harm the populace. Good riddance.

The quote from his mother pretty much says it all.

“He got what he wanted,” his mother, Rita Traywick, told me from her Alabama home the day before her son’s funeral. “The notoriety. He made it.”

Not "helping people", not "revolutionizing medicine"-- what he was after was a moment in the spotlight, to hell with being able to follow through on any of his wild promises.
