We often hear about U.S. presidents appointing "czars."
But why are we using a term once reserved for Russian emperors?
But the term was a media creation, not a White House one.
"Obama will appoint Ron Klain to be the Ebola czar," CNN's Jake Tapper said.
But it wasn't Jackson who coined the term; it was reportedly the newspaper Washington Globe.
But even today, the term is still prevalent and has a less-than-flattering connotation. Conservative media criticized President Barack Obama for the number of czars he allegedly appointed.
The Obama White House argued many of the media-dubbed "czars" were Senate-confirmed or from the Bush administration.
But President Donald Trump has seemingly embraced the term and even tweeted it after his pick for drug czar withdrew from consideration.
