Hot on the heels of the enigmatic 'covfefe' Tweet comes another.

This time it's from the account of junior WH spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders whose Twitter feed issued the baroque looking message above this morning at 8:58 a.m.

Sanders explained that her three year old had gotten hold of her phone, but White House observers remain unconvinced. They suspect it was probably the president Donald Trump trying to spell 'infrastructure week'.

"This is the most coherent statement to come from the Trump administration," opined journalist David Blaustein.

LoL.

An actual 3 year old would tweet more truthfully than #45. And coherently.

I thought "Easter Island head, airplane, Asian gate, abandoned shack" was a marvel of clarity!

The graceful Japanese temple gate, normally found in front of Shinto shrines, is called a Torii 鳥居 in Japanese. The Kanji characters literally mean 'bird abode'.
