"despite the constant negativ ( laughter ) press covfefe" now, we're betting that he probably meant to type "coverage," but this is trump! so, we can't rule out that he was just reminiscing about an obscure racial slur his dad used to sing to him to get him to sleep. ♪ one little, two little
three little covfefes ♪ i don't know. the neighborhood was great until all the coachella moved in. it sounds like something they would say. trump quickly deleted that tweet, but it didn't stop the internet from running with it and tweeting about how to conjugate it. it's conof my favorite things that happened on the internet last night. incredible. we covfefe. trump tweeted this, who can say what covfefe means. there were a lot of theories around the office. maybe it's its noise adam sandler makes. maybe it's some sort of trieblg position where if you kill the covfefe, you become the covfefe. or maybe it's some sort of an alternative vegan protein, i'll
have the kale salad with the covfefe. comed what happens is the true meaning of covfefe? paul f. tompkins. >> it is obviously the haunted board game where you-- you elect an incompetent idiot president, and then it comes true. >> chris: points. ,. >> chris: points. anyone else? tim? >> it's the name of the special man spanx he wears while golfing. >> it's what idi amine orders at starbucks. one ventispd covfefe. >> chris: next up, g-thing. last night, before twitter became obsessed with "covfefe"-- the tweet that proved our president types with all the accuracy of a cat who jumped on a laptop, another post was capturing our
collective imaginations from smooth jazz master kenny g. i give you, "when the sax is good." ( laughter ) it's so hot when you can see the hole like that. ( laughter ) that's a saxophone is giving me a tromboner. i'd even let him stick it in my bass-soon. that was bad. that was bad. i'm sorry, guys. comedians, this picture is so amazing that it can't be relegated to a single meme. what's another caption you could put with this photo? tim. >> when you hit your own g-spot. >> chris: yes, points, points.
