Is Donald Trump OK? People have been wondering that for a while, but last night, just after midnight, the president left the Twittersphere utterly bamboozled with a tweet reading: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”
“Covfefe.” It kinda sounds like coffee, but isn’t. It’s somewhere between the name of a cuddly Pokemon and a Sigur Ros album title. Or the noise you’d make when choking on a beautiful chocolate cake. As soon as the tweet was sent, baffled users immediately began asking questions as to what it could mean. Some were genuinely worried.
Of course, “covfefe” means nothing whatsoever, and was more likely just a botched attempt at spelling the word “coverage” from the world’s most powerful man. As of writing, the tweet — which still hasn’t been deleted — is sitting proudly at the top of the president’s timeline with well over 100,000 retweets and 138,000 likes.
Bafflement soon turned to humor, and then came the memes and jokes. Pour yourself out a hot “covfefe” and find the best ones below.
