Washington Post– At 12:06 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday, President Trump tweeted a strange sentence fragment.
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” the tweet read. That was it. It ended abruptly, as if someone stopped him, or he stopped himself, or perhaps he never meant to send it.
No, “covfefe” isn’t a typo, at least, not on the part of The Washington Post.
Within six hours, it had been retweeted more than 127,000 times and “liked” more than 162,000 times — making it one of his most popular tweets in months. By then it had become a massive Internet joke.
Dear Mr. President, Please tell me, what is this “covfefe” you speak of? Is it some secret launch code? An SOS? Or are you just wasted on a Tuesday? The most logical explination I can come up with is that somebody is finally been given the job to restrict the presidents twitter activity. The Twitter patrol saw trump tweeting and he got six words into this one before somebody spear-tackled him. Boom, we get, “Despite the constant negative press convfefe” which I assume was supposed to say something about press coverage before someone stepped in.
Glad to know someone is finally on top of the situation, but I would have liked to know how the tweet ends. What a cliffhanger just after midnight from Ratings Machine DJT.
Absolutely sure he was physically stopped mid-tweet by someone. Struggle is still ensuing based on the fact it hasn’t been deleted
