Our president will not admit a mistake. In a fit of early-morning tweeting, President Trump probably mis-typed "coverage" as "covfefe."
CNN editor Chris Cillizzi suggested how Sean Spicer might handle the situation when asked:
Instead, Spicer said,
"A small group of people know exactly what he meant."
The president tweeted,
"Who can figure out the true meaning of 'covfefe' ??? Enjoy!"
The Administration's response protects the president and asserts his power: he doesn't have to apologize for anything. The tweet came amidst the president's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, so the buzz didn't last long.

- How about President Trump's?
- A New York Times article today says lawyers discouraging the president's tweeting. Why do you think that is? Should he follow the advice?
