Cast in the Image of the President

From Vixen Strangely at Strangely Blogged:

The Presidential challenge coin of Donald J. Trump breaks with tradition in a few ways–for one thing, it is not round. Coins are usually round, but Trump’s has a banner with his name at the bottom. The name “Donald J. Trump” is also at the top. His signature is also on it. And the Presidential Seal and the motto “E Pluribus Unum” are gone, but his motto: “Make America Great Again”, is on it.

I would say it breaks tradition because Donald Trump doesn’t consider himself a part of preceding tradition. Could a nation that bears a motto “Out of many, one” be the same that tolerates Trump’s appalling ideas about who the many actually are? This is not a challenge coin, so much as a struggle coin. He struggles to believe he is President.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
