'Unstable,' 'Evil': Liberals, Journalists Freak Out Over Trump 'Covfefe' Typo

President Donald Trump made a Twitter typo late Tuesday night, tweeting about the negative "covfefe" he was receiving from the press.

Most on the left and the right alike saw the typo as just an amusing mistake. Trump himself joined in the fun Wednesday morning, challenging his Twitter followers to figure out the "true meaning" of the made-up word.

But some saw the "covfefe" tweet as a more nefarious sign of Trump's ineptitude, or declared the tweet was very, very important in the grand scheme of things.

"The U.S. president's half-finished late night tweet is the purest expression of his increasingly floundering presidency. He can't get his messaging right even at the simplest level," the Independent fretted.

CNN declared that "'Covfefe' tells you all you need to know about Donald Trump."

"That lack of discipline reveals that there is simply no one who can tell Trump 'no,'" CNN editor at large Chris Cillizza wrote. "Or at least no one whom he will listen to."

Newsweek tweeted in response to the tweet that "we'll be telling our grandchildren about the 'covfefe' tweet." The actual headline was equally in awe of the tweet, declaring, "Donald Trump's 'Covfefe' Will Be the Word of the Year—or Century."

Meanwhile, the reaction on Twitter was equally indignant.

University of Virginia professor and political prognosticator Larry Sabato even suggested that cabinet members should take a look at the 25th Amendment, which allows them to remove the president from office in cases of mental inability or illness.
