Sean Spicer's simple response to Trump's 'covfefe' tweet

At 6:09 a.m., Trump's twitter feed came alive again with this playful challenge: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

It's not like politicians are immune from typos, and it's not the first time a prominent American politician baffled followers with a mistyped tweet.

President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton engaged in a Twitter skirmish Wednesday night that saw the President revive his "Crooked Hillary" moniker.

The original message, which seemed to have been the start of a Trump complaint about media coverage, soon became a top trend on Twitter.


Spokesman Sean Spicer was asked about the cryptic word.

Even Clinton quipped, "I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians".

"I went too far", she said in a second video.

Perhaps it was meant as a follow-up to his previous tweet, in which he retweeted a Fox and Friends tweet citing an unnamed source who said, "Jared Kushner didn't suggest Russian communications channel in meeting". All the signs are there: a made-up word, an incomplete clause, and then he fell asleep and the tweet just stayed there until the morning, when he should've tweeted, "My bad, the Henny had me lazy".


Others created new Twitter profiles with the word "covfefe", including those of a fictional wizard and warrior. Jimmy Kimmel lamented that he'll never write anything funnier than the term.

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham had a pointed political theory: "It's so bad-the collusion b/t the Dems & the press, the establ vs the ppl, that we needed a new word to describe it all". Moreover, during the trip the president was accompanied by his wife and was rarely alone with his phone - unlike his frequent solitary nights at the White House.

The White House says President Donald Trump will welcome the president of Romania to the White House next week. One would think he would delete it and just let it go, but he played into it once it was time to rise and shine as the president of the United States.
