The True Meaning of ‘Covfefe’ and Why it Perfectly Sums Up the Trump Presidency
‘Covfefe’ means whatever we want it to mean
‘Covfefe’-It’s the Tweet Typo heard ’round the world. A late night Trump Tweet that was apparently meant to criticize media coverage turned into something completely different.Navigating the nuances of language evolution is a science that takes decades and decades of study. The word ‘gay’ had an entirely different meaning in 1817 than it does today. But the introduction of social media into the way speech and language evolves has become the Warp Drive of Evolutionary Linguistics. In the two days since the tweet appeared a google search for the word returns over a million results. It seems even President Trump is perplexed about the new word.
