What does 'covfefe' mean? Social media rushes to define Trump's typo

Share

President Donald Trump has been handing out his cellphone number to world leaders and urging them to call him directly, an unusual invitation that breaks diplomatic protocol and is raising concerns about the security and secrecy of the US commander in chief's communications. "What is "covfefe"?" said another, to no avail.

It has become a regular occurrence at White House press briefings for Sean Spicer to be asked to clarify a tweet of President Trump's.

However, Trump seemed to enjoy the fuss and later tweeted: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

"The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant", Spicer responded.

At 12.06am on Wednesday, Trump wrote: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe", triggering a torrent of jokes on Twitter.

As the press secretary abruptly walked off the podium, one frustrated reporter exclaimed, "How short are these gonna be?"

President Trump sparked a global kerfuffle over "covfefe" with his bizarrely truncated tweet just minutes into Wednesday, spawning countless jokes across Twitter but also more serious questions for which the White House gave no answers. By making the comment that covfefe is a big secret will now cause #covfefegate to go on for hours if not days.

Trump Calls Out Senators Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer On Twitter... Sean Spicer, whose head has been on the chopping block since his first rocky debut back in January, simply abandoned any shred of realism Tuesday for a fairytale version of Trump's overseas trip that was nauseatingly, indeed laughably, gushy. Jokes about Spicer's response to Trump's "covfefe" tweet abounded on social media, all revolving around the basic principle that Spicer would somehow defend the tweet by claiming that its meaning should have been obvious.
