Donald Trump gives the world "covfefe" and the internet goes crazy

Who knows what "covfefe" means? But it was something even Donald Trump could get in on

As of 5:53 a.m. ET Wednesday morning, President Trump’s “covfefe” tweet has been deleted from his personal account, a violation of the Presidential Records Act if there ever was one. Because, you see, “covfefe” was no mere grammatical error on POTUS’s part. Those are legion. When the president had bestowed his latest neologistic turd unto the world at 12:06 a.m., “covfefe” instantly became a historical swath of the American fabric, a symbol of our nation’s indefatigable commitment to be known as idiots across the globe. And we will continue to prevail.

For those of you who were asleep during this six-hour window, the meaning and import of the tweet is not clear. The safest bet is that the president was upset at the media coverage on his incompetence or corruption or weight gain and lashed out at the press. And, in a childish kneejerk, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” was born.

At 6:09 a.m. ET, POTUS followed up with a trollish ditty, one that attempts to pass off “covfefe” in I meant to do that! fashion. “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!”

Very much looking forward to the Twitter hall monitors un-ironically shouting “distraction.”
