What the heck is a covfefe?

Last night our President, Donald J. Trump, bizarrely tweeted:

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”

A New York Times article asked: What’s a ‘Covfefe’? Trump Tweet Unites a Bewildered Nation. Perhaps he just misspelled coverage or got confused spelling coffee.

The following ‘fake news’ explains it. A covfefe is a double-ended tool, or (or more desperately) a weapon. The classic tool is the double-bladed paddle (shown above) used with a kayak. The classic Trumpian weapon is a Drumpfschticker (double-ended fighting pike). Pikes were used successfully by armies in the pike square or the Scottish rectilinear schiltron.

But the Drumpfschticker instead is associated with the Selbstmordkampflinie (suicidal battle line), a desperate tactic necessitated by their awful family strategy of simultaneously antagonizing neighboring cities both to the east and west. Reportedly the Drumpfschticker inspired the double-ended lightsaber employed by the Star Wars character Darth Maul.
