  • Obviously he was writing 'coverage' when the stroke hit. Luckily the result of most strokes are speech impediments, reduced vocabulary, dementia and such, so no real change.

    Does mocking Trump count as trolling, or is it just the expected normal thing to do?



  • @anonymous234 It's expected for people to do it to make themselves feel better living in a world they don't comprehend.

    It's the normal thing to do.

    So I'm told. Honestly, I just had enough.

    I'd say I can't wait for the next USian presidential elections, but that's a different brand of crazy altogether.

    Yes, you did.

    Sure, and I've made my own jokes and laughed at a lot of others. But we're relying on a typo to do far too much work here and it kind of says more about the people making the "jokes" than the target at this point.


  • SockDev

    @boomzilla Credit where it's due though, Trump doesn't seem to mind the joke:

    Sounds like he's maturing in office a bit. Or the tinfoil hatters are right and it was deliberate.

    It's actually really obvious that that's a swypo of "cover". Or maybe "coverage".

    Obviously because his tiny hands have problems with the keyboard.

    He forgot to turn off Russian mode, no doubt.

    The real story behind "Covfefe"

    In an undisclosed room of the White House:
    :tangerine: Ah ha ha! I have taken The Twitter Phone out from under the watchful eye of the intern they appointed to keep watch over it! Now to make tweeting great again!
    :iphone: D...e...s...p...o...:back: ...i...t...e...

    Elsewhere in the White House:
    :baby: Have you seen The Twitter Phone? I swear it was right here, and then I heard a strange sound and turned round for just a second, and the phone was gone...
    :man_in_business_suit_levitating_tone1: Oh no! The President must have gotten access to the phone! Quickly, we must save the world!

    Back in the undisclosed room:
    :tangerine: "Despite the constant negative press cov---"
    :man_in_business_suit_levitating_tone1: Unhand that phone! It's for your own good!
    struggle ensues
    :iphone: ...fefeSend
    more struggle
    sound of shattered glass
    :man_in_business_suit_levitating_tone1: Well, at least The Twitter Phone can no longer be used by anyone, the world is safe for a while
    :woman: Uh, who lost control of The Twitter Phone, there's a new post up and it's gonna go viral in a hurry...
    :man_in_business_suit_levitating_tone1: What do you mean? Oh, damn it. We need the account recovery process, and STAT! And someone fire the phone intern!


  • SockDev

    Finally, a legit use for :man_in_business_suit_levitating_tone1:! :D



  • @wharrgarbl Yes thank you, the meme based on a typo that came and went in less than 4 hour and yet somehow still refuses to die entirely.

    Hahaha! The POTUS made a typo! Therefore we should make fun of that and ignore every other grossly-incompetent thing he's done that could truly harm the US and its interests! Hahaha! Twitter is so fun!


    I have to say though the favorite was the guy I follow on Twitter who a couple weeks ago was decrying Trump for deleting tweets when they should have been public record (which is to be fair a genuine point), but after this one was posted was screaming, "why hasn't Trump deleted this tweet yet!" without, apparently, being able to identify his own hypocrisy.



  • @blakeyrat Nah, that's not the point. The humor comes from Trump's joke about it, and then Spicer's claim that Trump did it on purpose. The humor is in how obviously the administration is trying to gaslight.

    Nobody would have cared about a typo if he just owned up to it. Seriously, he makes typos all the time.

    0_1496334194726_Untitled.png

    Help me out here. I thought the definition of "gaslight" was trying to trick someone into thinking they're crazy, the word coming from the play/movie where that happens.

    Are you saying that Sean Spicer is trying to make us believe that Trump is crazy? Or... Trump wants people to think he's crazy?

    Because those insane conspiracy theories make you sound crazier than anything in that tweet or press conference.

    @Captain said in covfefe:

    He did own up to it. That's what the joke, the one you mention here:

    @Captain said in covfefe:

    The humor comes from Trump's joke about it,

    was exactly.

    If I'm talking to some people about a breakfast order and I mistakenly say something like "flancrakes", when the pancakes are delivered I might have a little gag and says something like, "haha, well these pancakes are good but flancrakes would have been better." That's exactly the kind of thing Trump did, and an appropriate response to something like this.

    There's so many hundreds of LEGIT things to criticize Trump about, and people are going on and on about a fucking typo.



  • @Captain said in covfefe:

    Which is a long winded way to say: there is no humor.



  • @blakeyrat said in covfefe:

    Yes, specifically by changing things around behind their back and/or otherwise denying (demonstrable) reality.

    Trump arguably owned up with that ridiculous "joke" (if it was even that?), and then his toady pretended it never happened, said that the right people know what 'covfefe' means, pretended Trump said it on purpose, etc. Spicer didn't sound like he was in on any jokes.

    You're right, this isn't the right thing to focus on. It's just a bit of light entertainment.



  • @Captain said in covfefe:

    Yes, specifically by changing things around behind their back and/or otherwise denying (demonstrable) reality.

    So you're proposing that Sean Spicer is trying to convince... who?... that they're crazy? Literally the entire populace of the US?

    I'm still lost, because if I'm reading you literally, you're insane.



  • It's propaganda/psyops. Nothing insane about it. Indeed, it's been going on since before the election. That's why there are "paid trolls" out there. To distort your perception of reality. To make the conspiracy theories seem credible. To make news seem like fake news. To create anxiety.
    Etc.

    I'm still lost, because if I'm reading you literally, you're insane.

    Naive.



  • @Captain said in covfefe:

    To make the conspiracy theories seem credible.

    So they're working with Maddow now? I'm not understanding how this all works.



  • Let's actually stop and parse what Sean Spicer said, shall we?

    Asked about the meaning behind the president's cryptic tweet at Wednesday's press briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer said, "The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant."

    "The president ... know[s] exactly what he meant."

    Well, obviously. He knows what he originally meant to tweet.

    "...and a small group of people know..."

    So apparently Trump isn't the only one who knows what he intended to tweet. The simplest explanation for this is that Trump has told a few people what he meant to type. This is not an unbelievable claim.

    Finally, observe that he ducked the question. When asked if there was some meaning behind the tweet, he simply responded that its meaning was known to Trump and to whoever Trump presumably told, but clearly they're not telling us. (It'd probably just spoil the inadvertent joke if they did tell now. The resulting hubbub over his typo'd tweet has far exceeded the comedic value of what was probably just a sharp jab at some negative news coverage.)

    This is only my theory on what happened, but it's a simpler and more reasonable theory which matches perfectly with what little facts we have. There is simply no evidence to support the conspiracy theory of "it was a secret code, which Trump and a small group of privileged other people are in on". Occam's razor applies.



  • @blakeyrat said in covfefe:

    So you're proposing that Sean Spicer is trying to convince... who?... that they're crazy? Literally the entire populace of the US?

    I think after watching a fair amount of his briefings, you begin to observe a reality-distortion field that would put Jobs in awe.



  • @anotherusername said in covfefe:

    He probably told a binder full of women. Wait, wrong unfunny meme.



  • @Captain said in covfefe:

    Is it.

    @Captain said in covfefe:

    No, I'm saying there's something insane about you. You're creating conspiracy theories out of whole cloth.

    @Captain said in covfefe:

    That's why there are "paid trolls" out there. To distort your perception of reality. To make the conspiracy theories seem credible.

    Oh, so you're getting paid to give us this conspiracy theory? Why didn't you just say so.

    Hillary appeared to think she knew what it meant, but I can't imagine her being in Trump's binder full of women...



  • @Captain said in covfefe:

    IMO the humor comes from people trying to decypher it without realizing it was just a typo. Accepting it was a typo kills the joke.



  • Why do people keep saying its a typo? Submitting a post without intent and after some unrelated symbols ("fefe") appeared at the end is not a typo - it's some kind of physical or medical accident or incident.



  • @CreatedToDislikeThis first time I saw it I thought it was some acronym

    Oh bullshit, I've posted worse text than that and I was merely drunk.



  • @blakeyrat Being drunk is one example of a physical or medical incident.



  • @CreatedToDislikeThis If you're Mormon maybe.



  • It's not the most interesting one, no.

    it's a speculatable possibility.
