He [[spoiler:scares a Dementor in front of the Wizengamot]], and they take it in stride, because he's The Boy-Who-Lived and it fits story logic. [[OnlySaneMan Well, ''most'' of them do]].

** Dumbledore's ObfuscatingInsanity confuses people as to whether he's sane pretending to be insane, or insane pretending to be sane pretending to be insane. He may or may not have used Obfuscating Evil on the Death Eater faction to stop them from taking people's families hostage, but now they think Dumbledore isn't above stooping to any low. But people still have trouble believing that he's set fire to a chicken. Defense Professors have had such a terrible record over the last decades that ''any'' accusation against them is plausible... which is why the teachers ''don't'' want to hear them, because they don't want to have to fire the professors mid-year; this is for the sake of their students' education.
