“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

No one ever accused Trump of having good taste
The Presidential challenge coin has always been a bit tacky for my taste. The first dates back to Bill Clinton, a classless act on a good day. Obama handed them out to rappers.
The President is not a monarch. He is a political animal at the top of the food chain. The challenge coin is an overpriced business card at the taxpayer's expense.
Trump's design is not the worst ever, but his penchant for poor political timing is.
