United States President Donald Trump loves to send out tweets and he has been doing it ever since we can remember him prior to his election to the presidency. Sometimes, some of his tweets clearly were full of typos and his detractors used them to mock at him. Today, he went ahead with another tweet using “covfefe” while referring to the press.
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” Trump’ said in a short tweet on Wednesday morning.
Is this “covfefe” an acronym? A secret message? Or just a typo?
Twitter world immediately weighed in, some with biting sarcasm, and soon enough #covfefe became the top trending hashtag on Twitter. Some people came up with mock Google translation of “covfefe” (from Russian to English) as “I finally resign,” and comments like “Drain the covfefe” – a “statement on Trump’s election promising to “drain the swamp” in Washington.
“‘Covfefe is a great word, period! – Sean Spicer tomorrow,” read one tweet, refering to Trump’s spokesman.
The Regent’s English Language Centre in London joined the chorus to clear the confusion. “To all of our English language students, we can confirm that ‘covfefe’ is not an English word. Yet,” the centre said.
Even eight hours later, Trump’s tweet had not been deleted nor corrected, nor any hint came from Trump who instead joined the conversation 2 hours back with another tweet challenging the world: “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!”
Covfefe meaning revealed!
The #covfefe hashtag is still trending at the time of this report and the old wise owl at Zoram Obsever has come up with its own meaning of covfefe. Covfefe is a word used by United States president Donald Trump on May 31, 2017, that baffled everyone. In short, covfefe, means coming up with a new weapon to attack your detractors (in Trump’s case, the so-called mainstream media) while they tried to figure out where you actually are hitting them.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!
