What Did He Mean? Social Media Tries To Decipher Trump's 'Covfefe' Tweet

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe", read the USA leader's short tweet sent early Wednesday.

Several hours after the fact, Trump capitulated to Twitter's sick burns and deleted his original "covfefe" tweet. Urban Dictionary added the word to its list, defining it as "The act of having a stroke in the middle of writing a social media post", with an example sentence: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".

And the term "covfefe" became Top Tweet even in the Hexagon.

In January, a few days after Trump took office, I wrote about how the president metabolizes all criticism and conflict surrounding him as entertainment.

Then, around 3.15 p.m. IST, more than five hours after it was posted, the mysterious tweet vanished. That's it. There was no extra information or punchline, just a familiar refrain about the media being unfair and a random typo that has since taken over the internet (it also drove Merriam-Webster insane). "Goes back to bed".
