Last night, you had to be a night owl or a west-coaster to see President Trump’s latest Twitter opus.
It took a few hours for Trump to delete this masterpiece–so it stayed up long enough for many to contemplate its meaning. In Daniel 5:25, a disembodied hand wrote on a wall in Babylon “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin” and nobody could figure it out until God gave Daniel the meaning.
Like King Belshazzar, Trump appeared to ask for some divine assistance this morning about the errant tweet.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

Occam’s Razor would suggest it was just an autocorrect error made before bed (When does Trump sleep? He was up by 6am tweeting again.)
Some others gave it the college try.

It could be drowsiness.
Covfefe is how I order coffee before I've had the coffee that makes me no longer say covfefe. Covfefe me!

But I hope ‘covfefe’ isn’t what Daniel explained.
Mene means ‘numbered’—God has numbered the days of your reign and has brought it to an end.
Tekel means ‘weighed’—you have been weighed on the balances and have not measured up.
That might mean ‘covfefe’ means what all Trump’s haters have been tweeting all night.

But it’s probably just “coverage” mistyped because Trump tweeted from bed and put away the smartphone.
Only Trump can get 10,000 replies and keep Twitter alight a whole night for a mistyped nonsense word.
