So, I did some googling.

This is an Arabic joke. When you type covfefe in Google Translate, it recognizes it as Arabic and translates it as "sawf faqaf", which means "I stand up".

So, he's "pranking". This is the sort of joke people in the Middle East like to play on Westerners. They teach you to pronounce a word and there you are standing there like a fool, in public saying something stupid or swearing, and everyone laughs at you.

Trump's little prank was probably shown to him by some aide on the trip who got talking to a Saudi who told him about covfefe.

Now, every school kid is going around spouting an encrypted "fuck off". Trump has played the media who have fallen into the trap of thinking it's "false news" and "Gee, won't they be embarrassed when they find out, he he he". But he's the fool because he doesn't realize this is just embarrassing, as Sean Spicer found out. How do you prevent a leak on this one and explain that he left this vulgar joke on line for 6 hours?

When Trudeau swore back in 1971, it was a sign that he had lost his temper, and he was a brilliant politician and intellectual. It pretty much finished him off as a force in politics because he was ridiculed over it. The word entered the popular lexicon. Products were marketed using it. A wine was named after it, "Fuddle Duck".

So, Trump is saying "Despite the negative press, I stand up (so fuck off)" and rather than it being a sign he has lost his marbles, Trump thinks this shows great intellect. But it shows lack of judgement, and is tasteless. What now? This is a watershed moment. It's the day Trump lost it and told America to fuck off.

I personally think it was just FFS, and the "V" got in there along with the "Fs" and the "Es" getting transposed. Should have typed coffee, but fumbled. Mind you, I think that Bannon should have tucked him in and put his phone in a safe until morning. I still think that the Chump is nuts, but comporting his typo as having meaning in any other language is just another religious interpretation. My interpretation might even be taken that way, when one gets right down to it. As far as telling the US to "fuck off", the very fact that he got elected is telling us that, from the people who will be, hopefully, crawling back under their rocks, come mid-terms.

RE: Anti trump march June 3rd.
No, it's all over the internet now. It's a double entendre. Just go to google translate and type it in. It immediately detects Arabic and you get Sawf faqaf. Meaning "I stand up". I live out here. I had this happen. They give you a word to use and they hope you use it and make a fool of yourself. It's like asking someone "so, you for coffee?".

The funny part is that leaving people thinking it is a typo is just as bad. Joe Scarborough said it was like someone who had "pooped their pants" and then said it was deliberate, a statement, then sat in it, hung it on the wall and called it modern art.

Trump's now in a stupid situation that he looks like a fool who can't type. The joke was too obscure and if he explains it, the humour is lost, and he looks vulgar.

The man just fell asleep tweeting.

Unfortunately there has been little to no coverage of the marches because of the London attack. Fucking terrorists.

Yes

Falling asleep in my Differential Equations class, had I been using a typing device instead of paper for note taking, would have at least resulted in real letters (in some randomish sequence), instead of a squiggle that tapered off into nothing. I got a "B". Never take a Differential Equations course right after lunch. No

Teacher: Does anyone know what covfefe means?
Class: Sawf faqaf

Later, in staff room

Principle: Miss Smith, I have some concern about what sounded like a lot of swearing coming from your classroom.

RE: Anti trump march June 3rd.
Here, let me try it again

The Arabic symbols for "I will stand up" comes up on google translate as Sawf Faqaf.

When you put cov fe'fe into google translate it also comes up as Sawf Faqaf.

So, on the one hand, you can say "despite the bad press I will stand up" or, on the other, you could say "despite the bad press sawf faqaf"

Being of English decent, I promise you, this is a double entendre intended to make people say something like "so fuck off".

It fails precisely because it's not in the American culture to do this sort of thing...lol. But the first thought I had, being in the Near East, and having had this sort of prank pulled on me is that it meant "fuck off". It's even funnier now because he made himself look like he either could not type or was drunk or passed out and any attempt to explain it would have to involve people on TV using what sounds like a swear word.

It's just priceless. But, he plainly got to the point where he wanted to say "fuck off" and my feeling is that when Pierre Trudeau got to that point back in 1971, he was under so much attack that he snapped and that was the point which led to his downfall because people made fun of him because it was considered crude for someone of his intellectual stature. I remember it very well and it just struck me that Donald had snapped.

There has been coverage in Europe. Kudos to the people standing up, but 3000 in a city like NYC, a couple of thousand in other large hubs won't sway anyone anytime soon.
