Over the last few days, Twitter has been front and center in much of the news. President Trump is used to causing a stir with his use of the social media platform, but he may have finally outdone himself. Just after midnight Tuesday, Trump tweeted out an incomplete sentence with a typo at the end, and ‘covfefe’ became an instant internet sensation.
Internet users and the media spent an entire day Wednesday trying to decode the message. Was it just a simple typo? Did he mean something else by it? Why didn’t he complete his thought?
Eventually, memes emerged, and the entire episode turned into a big joke.
Hillary Clinton, whom nobody would accuse of having a sense of humor, eventually attempted to get in on the fun. The only problem? Her tweet fell flat. It just didn’t connect with the people…kind of like her campaign.
But, that wasn’t the worst of it. Donald Trump Jr. replied to the tweet, resulting in a stinging burn for the former presidential candidate:
Of course, Hillary Clinton has had a really tough time getting over her election loss. After breaking her silence, Hillary Clinton has gone on an interview tour to blame everything under the sun for her election loss. Russian hacking, James Comey, sexism, DNC computers…you name it. Evidently, the only thing that wasn’t a problem was herself.
More truthfully, even if hacking or Comey played a role in her election defeat, Clinton has nobody to blame but herself. After all, there would be no story to uncover had Clinton not used a home-brewed email server to transmit classified information. At the end of the day, she put herself in the situation to be vulnerable. Mixed with her terrible policy ideas, the voters firmly rejected her.
Sadly, she has now decided to return to the spotlight. However, if this Twitter exchange is any indication, she may want to consider a return to hiding.
