What is "covfefe?" Fri, 06/02/2017 - 5:05pm Editor Choices A mistaken word in an incomplete late-night tweet by President Trump that was taken down the next morning - no big deal. Just what Sean Spicer said it was - a "code" message to a "select few" people who know the true meaning of "covfefe." Nothing but an incomplete tweet that resulted from a worn-down commander-in-chief falling asleep in the middle of a thought. A gourmet goat cheese.
