The brouhaha stirred by US President Donald Trump’s tweet using a unique word ‘covfefe’ has a cryptic explanation, going by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
“The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant,” Spicer told reporters during a press briefing, evoking heckles from the mediaperson who were actually targeted by Trump in his tweet.
The incomplete tweet from US President Trump reads:”Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” He obviously meant constant negative press coverage but Twitter was abuzz with other explanations thoughout the night of Wednesday deciphering what it means.
“A covfefe is a yiddish term for ‘I gotta go to bed now’”, explained Senator Al Franken in an exclusive on CNN.
Some were sure that the president was not in his alert mood while typing the tweet. Others took a chance to show their talent as below on Twitter:
Hillary Clinton: “I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians”. Later when Trump criticised her for blaming others for her defeat in elections, she replied using the word mockingly:”People in covfefe houses shouldn’t throw covfefe.”
Russell Hayward @russelljh went a step ahead and gave out nuclear disaster as the possible outcome if the US president misses out which button to press. If ‘Covfefe’ is for missed word coverage, then pressing other buttons may result in disaster, he meant. “#covfefe about nothing. So what if Trump mixes up which buttons he is pushing occasionally…”
