It took Trump or his advisors nearly six hours to delete the President's tweet, and this time was more than enough for the entire United States and Europe to go insane on Twitter with jokes, wonder, worry, theories and interpretations.
Itt stayed atop his Twitter feed for two hours before it was finally taken down, but by that time, "covfefe" had become a worldwide trending topic, and its author the object of fresh mockery.
If you woke up on Wednesday morning wondering where to get your morning "covfefe", then you clearly hung out on the internet last night.
Trump tweeted shortly before 1 a.m. that "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".
The odd post that referred to the meaning of a "word" went viral within hours. Americans were united: What does covfefe mean? However, Twitter users are writing humorous comments beneath the above tweets of the White House reporters by joking that Melania may have confiscated President Trump's phone in order to prevent him from tweeting whilst the couple was overseas.
Covfefe is not now a word in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. One person wrote "Don't talk to me before my morning 'covfefe'".
Comedian Jimmy Kimmel tweeted, "what makes me saddest is that I know I'll never write anything funnier than #covfefe".
In somewhat related news, the Trump administration is trying to roll back coverage (not "covfefe") on a "federal rule that requires most employers to cover birth control in their health insurance plans at no cost to women".
Donald Trump speaks during a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum, commemorating the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II, on May 23, 2017. Checks Twitter... Uh... Regrets checking Twitter. Merriam-Webster also weighed in with a tweet.
