After President /www.huffingtonpost.com/topic/donald-trump"}}" data-beacon-parsed="true">Donald Trump tweeted the word “covfefe” accidentally a few weeks ago (we know, it feels like years), some people simply refuse to let it die.
So much so that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has received more than 30 trademark requests that include the word “covfefe,” according to The Hill. Outside of requests to trademark the word as-is, other requests include hashtag versions of the word and even “Covfefe Coffee.”
One man wants to use covfefe to sell “clothing for domestic pets,” in addition to costumes, footwear, hats and maternity outfits for humans. What a world.
To all of this madness, we say: Stop trying to continue “covfefe”!! Let it die, friends.
In other covfefe insanity news, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) created the COVFEFE Act, a version of the word that has become an acronym for Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement. The bill would require that a president’s social media feeds be included in official records.
“In order to maintain public trust in government, elected officials must answer for what they do and say; this includes 140-character tweets,” Quigley said in a statement about the Act.
“President Trump’s frequent, unfiltered use of his personal Twitter account as a means of official communication is unprecedented. If the President is going to take to social media to make sudden public policy proclamations, we must ensure that these statements are documented and preserved for future reference. Tweets are powerful, and the President must be held accountable for every post.”
