Trump’s mistake leads the world to wonder – what the heck does ‘covfefe’ mean?

With the sheer amount of ludicrous tweets making their way from Donald Trump’s tiny fingertips to the world, it’s hardly surprising that one of them contains a spelling mistake.

What IS surprising is that Donald Trump’s official Twitter handle has let 93,000 people retweet a sentence ending in the non-word ‘covfefe’. At the time of writing, it’s been untouched for 3 hours. Oh boy.

I am really, truly, hand-on-heart curious to know what ‘covfefe’ means, how it relates to negative press, and WHY TRUMP HASN’T FIGURED OUT HOW TO DELETE IT.

Luckily, Twitter is asking the same questions. On the same day that Kathy Griffin elicited mass hysteria with a photo depicting Trump’s severed head, Trump’s managed to shine the spotlight back on himself. Is he finally ready to explain the whole regrettable Russia thing? Is he experimenting with psychedelics? Nobody knows.
