The idea that he was viewed as a buffoon by a lot of Germans is news to me. Which germans? Middle class? Elites? Former Nazi party members? Who exactly?

And even if true, Tojo, who was the PM of Japan at that point was placed on trial from an even more fanatical anti-US country. Where was the uprising?
Middle class, elites, former Nazis. And this was a continuation of how he was viewed during the latter part of the war. He basically hid himself away after he fell out of Hitler's inner circle - on the Obersalzberg and elsewhere - with his stash of plundered art and his morphine.
