Following President Donald Trump’s recent typo where he mistakenly wrote “Covfefe” in a Tweet, in place of the word “coverage,” South African Comedian Trevor Noah makes a joke of it on his show, The Daily Show, spinning a story around it about an African immigrant called “Covfefe.”
Trump’s original tweet, which he has since deleted, read “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.“
But according to Noah’s funny two-and-a-half-minute video, an African boy named Covfefe, played by Noah, had swum from Africa to the U.S. with the hope of meeting President Trump to find out the meaning of his name, “Covfefe.”
When “Covfefe” gets to the U.S., a bystander tells him Trump doesn’t really like immigrants.
However, “Covfefe” finally gets to meet Trump who says, “Who are you?” without turning around.
And then “Covfefe” responds saying “I am…” before the video cuts off and we see the caption “Covfefe: Based on a typo.”
