Hillary Clinton Throws Covfefe at Trump After He Calls Her 'Crooked Hillary' Again

Just when the world thought it had had enough covfefe to last a lifetime, Donald Trump's nemesis got in on the act.

Hillary Clinton didn't take well to a tweet by Trump concerning the former Democratic candidate's address at a technology conference in California on Wednesday.

Clinton identified multiple factors as causes for her shock election defeat to Trump, including the scandal concerning her use of a private email server while Secretary of State; the widespread dissemination of fake news on social media sites, such as Facebook, during the campaign; and an underfunded Democratic National Committee (DNC).

That led Trump to take a dig at Clinton in another of his late-night tweets, reviving his "Crooked Hillary" nickname.

Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC.

That was Clinton's cue to bring up Trump's now infamous, apparently mistyped tweet that sparked a global search for meaning throughout Wednesday.

People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe. https://t.co/M7oK5Z6qwF

It didn't matter that Clinton's tweet didn't make much linguistic sense, with covfefe used to substitute two different words. (The original phrase would read: People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.) Such is the dexterity and ambiguity of covfefe—Trump is yet to reveal the word's true meaning, though his pressman Sean Spicer claimed Wednesday that the president "and a small group of people knew exactly what he meant"— it can apparently be deployed however the user wants.

Clinton's tweet immediately gained widespread acclaim among supporters, with over 185,000 retweets and almost 400,000 likes by Thursday morning. President Trump, meanwhile, declined to respond. Perhaps he has finally run out of covfefe.
