ISTM this is in the neighborhood of "mountain out of a molehill", with a sprinkling of the "devil horn effect".

The "devil horn effect" is the opposite of the "halo effect". The "halo effect" being the feeling that someone can do no wrong, and are given leeway for any possible mistakes. With the "devil horn effect" it is the feeling that someone can do no right, and every insignificant error is magnified (or as some might call it, being married to a woman).
