I went as long as I could without mentioning this ridiculous story but it looks like I couldn’t make it through the day without at least mocking it once.
Earlier this morning, Trump accidentally tweeted a typo and then deleted it.
But, it was already out there and then he followed up with a tweet joking about the misspelled word.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

For some strange and annoying reason, “covfefe” became a thing and everyone on Twitter has been making lame jokes about it all day.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur didn’t joke about it.
She did something worse. She pretended it could possibly kill all of us.
On Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur was freaking out over President Trump’s overnight Twitter typo, even to the point of absurdly warning that the commander-in-chief’s use of social media could lead to a nuclear war.
Talking to former Clinton campaign staffer Zerlina Maxwell at the end of the 1 p.m. ET hour, Tur claimed that she didn’t want to “pile on” the coverage of Trump’s “weird tweet,” but then proceeded to breathlessly ask: “…what does that say about who controls the information coming out of the White House? And what if somebody hacked into Twitter and posted a message that could have global implications? Saying something like…‘I’m going to launch nuclear weapons’?”
Really? That’s the best you can do huh?
