AT APPROXIMATELY 5.06am Irish time – just after midnight in Washington – President Donald Trump sent out his most confusing tweet yet:

Over two hours later, the tweet remains up on the site and it’s the source of so many questions. Like:

  • Surely he was trying to spell “coverage”, but what happened to make him mangle the word so badly?
  • And why did the sentence just end mid-covfefe?
  • WHY didn’t he just delete it instantly and move on?
  • Covfefe? Covfefe.

People have had thoughts on this important issue.
