“Lip Sync Battle” host and model Chrissy Teigen is not amused by the latest wave of memes inspired by Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.
The Twitterverse has been obsessed with the word “covfefe” since Trump tweeted: “Despite the constant negative press coffee,” in a bizarre message late Tuesday night — but Teigen doesn’t see the funny side of it.
“Trump meant to write ‘coverage.’ That’s it. It’s not that deep and not that funny,” she tweeted. “Are you guys insane? I feel like I’m going insane.”

Trump seems to be getting a kick out of the responses to his mistake, however. On Wednesday, he tweeted this:
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

The original tweet spawned a quick flurry of jokes and memes online, with even Hillary Clinton cracking a joke about it at the Code Conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians,” she said.
Some Twitter users agree with Teigen, and think that the internet has simply taken something not that funny and spun it out of control — again. “It’s been beaten to death faster than any other joke in history,” one user said.
he accidentally hit send, shit happens. hes dumb as dirt but we've all done that. its been beaten to death faster than any joke in history

Others still find the typo hilarious.
But… "coverage" and then what? He just stopped at "covfefe" and tweeted that. It's hilarious Chrissy. HE'S THE PRESIDENT

Exactly. And Spicer pretending those in the know understand it. Which is… I can't even.
