WASHINGTON — Half a sentence and a typo from the President of the United States are the most-talked about trends on the Internet.

So here’s what we know happened.

President Donald Trump tweeted “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” a clause with no context, at 12:06 a.m. ET Wednesday.

As of 4 a.m., the tweet garnered more than 108,000 retweets and more than 135,000 likes.

The tweet was finally deleted about 5:50 a.m. ET Wednesday.

At 6:09 a.m., Trump took ownership of the gaff, tweeting: “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!”

The Internet responded the only way the Interent knows how – hilariously:

Police departments even got in on the act:

Heck, one guy got the custom ‘covfefe’ license plate!

Naturally, late night host Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t pass this up:

Memes, why’d it have to be memes.

Don’t leave the Scottish out:

And finally, this Twitter war between two mythical ‘covfefe’ accounts:

So what does ‘covfefe’ mean?  We may never know.

Most likely, ‘covfefe’ was intended to be coverage, but that’s no fun.

No word from Merriam-Webster on whether they’ll add it to the dictionary next year.

    Compare this coverage to his predecessor visiting “57 states”, referencing the non-existent Austrian language or bowing so deeply to a Saudi king it looked like they both went to Penn State.

    Come now! We all know the explanation he tweeted wasn’t written by him! It was damage control by his minions after they wrestled his phone from him!

    What worries me is that he might inadvertently tweet the nuclear codes as he hits the wrong button while falling asleep.

  • Liberal stupidity is frightening
