President Donald Trump on Monday revived the mystery – or weirdness – of one of his most famous tweets: ‘Covfefe.’ Re-tweeting a post reporting that a horse named ‘Covfefe’ won a race over the weekend – and noting that the winner was in fact named for the president’s famous mistweet – Trump replied: ‘Great! But how do you know it was a ‘mistweet?’ May be something with deep meaning!’
I’m tempted to exaggerate and declare that nothing Trump utters has a deep meaning, but the truth is that speeches that were written for him by professional speechwriters may contain a deep meaning.
But most of Trump’s speeches are delivered extemporaneously, and nothing that emanates from his diseased, demented and deplorable mind makes a lick of sense. There are no hidden meanings in his stump orations at his campaign rallies, the steady diet of racism and intolerance that he dishes out is clearly comprehended and easily digested by his supporters.
Trump’s stream-of-consciousness tweets are even more convoluted and revolting than his speeches, and most of them don’t have a rational meaning, let alone a deep meaning.
The truth is that “covfefe” doesn’t have a deep meaning, it’s just one of hundreds of Trump typos and mistweets that litter the Internet.
The pertinent question is, “who in God’s name would name a noble and majestic racehorse after a Trump mistweet? Dear Lord, I hope and pray that there aren’t any deplorable babies named “Covfefe.”
