Donald Trump isn’t exactly known for his impeccable spelling and grammar on Twitter. Most memorably, he condemned China’s “unpresidented” seizure of a US Navy drone and announced that he was “honered to serve" the American people – the day after his inauguration, no less.
But the President’s latest error has caused an even bigger stir, spawning an unpresidented (heh) avalanche of memes. Just after midnight, Washington time, he tweeted: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe." The word he was most likely looking for was “coverage”, but none of his aides alerted him to the blunder.
The tweet has since been deleted but it remained active on his account for hours without comment or clarification – enough time for his Twitter followers to engage in some relentless mocking. There are already T-shirts, covfefe mugs and other memorabilia for sale on eBay, and an entrepreneurial soul has purchased the domain name, covfefe.us.
Thank god for the internet, eh?
