President Trump Pretends Like He Meant To Tweet ‘Covfefe’

Yesterday at 2:06PM AEST, President Trump sent out a cryptic tweet that read, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe”. The internet spent the next six hours utterly confused. And, of course, there were memes. So many memes. And even an Urban Dictionary definition.

Curiously, Kellyanne Conway has claimed Trump doesn’t even know Carter Page.
