What is “covfefe”? The term continues to make its rounds on social media after U.S. President Donald Trump shared such a word on his official Twitter account. Some argue that the covfefe meaning is “coverage,” as President Trump might have tweeted a typo of the word. This would make sense based on the context of President Trump’s tweet. Others, however, claim that covfefe may actually be a concealed message to the nation’s enemies.
What is the Covfefe Meaning?
As per reports, President Trump’s tweet may quite possibly be a clandestine message to the Russians. How exactly “covfefe” translates to such a hidden message remains unknown. However, the very notion of President Trump communicating with the Russians via covfefe comes from none other than Hillary Clinton.
As some may recall, Clinton was the primary competition for President Trump during the U.S. presidential race. The rivalry between the two politicians thus remains rather sour despite President Trump already assuming office.
“I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians,” claims Clinton regarding what the covfefe meaning might be. President Trump later retaliates against Clinton’s comments as he goes on to call her a “terrible candidate.” Clinton does not back down at this, as she goes on to respond, “People in covfefe houses shouldn’t throw covfefe.”
Clinton is not the only individual who shows suspicions over President Trump’s covfefe tweet. Even Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary, believes that there may be more to what covfefe really means. According to Spicer, the tweet was not a simple typo from the president. In the covfefe tweet, Spicer shares, “The President and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.” What such information may be behind the covfefe meaning is still up in the air.
The Trump Beheading Photoshoot
Most recently, President Trump’s name has been making rounds not for his position but due to the involvement of comedian Kathy Griffin. Recent photos of Griffin show her holding up a bloody dummy head of President Trump. While Griffin meant no harm, the photos were eventually taken down due to the criticisms it garners. Additionally, Griffin issues an apology in light of the controversy.
“The image is too disturbing,” says Griffin of her Trump beheading picture taken by photographer Tyler Shields. “I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny.”
Some claim that the incident is enough to induce time behind bars. However, reports reveal that Griffin’s act is not conclusive enough to be considered a crime. As Standford University Law Professor Nathaniel Persily explains, Griffin’s picture did not necessarily encourage others to harm President Trump. As such, it should not be perceived as a direct threat.
