It's early, so grab a cup of coffee and we'll get you up to speed. President Trump, night owl and late-night tweeter, sent out a misspelled missive just after midnight. Here is what it said: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe" -- no period, just that.
Now, obviously (at least to anyone who tweets from time to time), Trump was typing along, got his thumbs crossed up and -- in a last snafu -- accidentally hit "tweet." He deleted the tweet almost immediately. Does that make a difference in today's mile-a-minute world? No. No it does not.
Trump knew his critics were going to have a field day (the Washington Post just yesterday wrote a story that he likes to have graphics and pictures in his daily intelligence briefing, 'cuz, you know, he's stupid and can't read). So early this morning, he tweeted out this message:
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
And a field day they did have.
