Trump Invents A New Word Overnight, The Internet Goes Covfefe

If you haven’t already noticed, Trump’s twitter rants usually come in threes. Because, saying it once isn’t bigly enough. After Monday’s two tweets bashing his unflattering coverage by the so-called fake news, he must have felt the inescapable pull to tap out number three. Except, he hit send too early, and didn’t notice for at least five hours, giving the world his newest word: covfefe.

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe”

At 12:06 AM Eastern, @realDonaldTrump tweeted out:


DidTrumpTweetIt.com rates that there is a 77% chance that trump wrote this himself. That isn’t the only pathetic tweet he’s had to delete because of overactive thumbs, by the way.

It was deleted around 5 AM, with Trump adding about an hour later “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!” But by then, the world had taken notice. Bigly.

What is covfefe?

Overnight, the Urban Dictionary tried its hand (pun intended) at figuring this out:

(n.) When you want to say “coverage” but your hands are too small to hit all the letters on your keyboard.

Meanwhile, Covfefe the Strong reared its ugly head on twitter:

He’s up to 4,940 followers in just 8 hours, by the way.

According to Minnesota Senator (and comedian) Al Franken, it means “I gotta go to bed now.”

Whatever it means, the nation united behind it. To laugh at Trump.

The New York Times asked if “the president’s lawyers, so eager to curb his stream-of-consciousness missives, tackled the commander in chief under the cover of night?”


Miriam Webster, which often tweets out the meaning of what politicians have said, gave up.

Rogue NASA wondered if it was the password for the nuclear launch codes. There are t-shirts you can buy. It’s a new video game.

It’s been translated by google:

Heck, one dad even got himself a vanity plate.

Trump did always say all press is good press. Here’s hoping he can, because he sure covfefe’d it up today.
