covfefe anyone ?

President Trump has donated a new word to the English language, much to the delight of lexicographers around the world from Merriam-Webster to Urban Dictionary.

No one is entirely sure what word he was trying for in this bizarre tweet that appeared in the early hours. The Palmer Report offered one reasonable guess:
What in the hell is covfefe? There’s a decent chance he was aiming for “press coverage” and got lost somewhere in his keyboard. But it doesn’t look like anyone is minding the store, because the errant tweet has already received more than five thousand retweets, and thirteen minutes later, it still hasn’t been deleted or replaced.

'covfefe' subsequently became the top trending topic on Twitter

Trump recently had his trusty unsecured Android phone taken away by minders. He is now said to be using an iPhone with exactly one app installed - Twitter.

It's a code word to the Russians when the back channel has been compromised. Everyone seek their nearest bomb shelter. This administration disgusts me to no end!

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) introduced legislation Monday to classify presidential social media posts — including President Trump's much-discussed tweets — as presidential records.

http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/337416-covefe-act-would-make-social-media-a-presidential-record

The Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement (COVFEFE) Act, which has the same acronym as an infamous Trump Twitter typo last month, would amend the Presidential Records Act to include "social media."

Presidential records must be preserved, according to the Presidential Records Act, which would make it potentially illegal for the president to delete tweets.

And presumably we would not have to hear about them until 2067, at the earliest?
