“I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians,” Clinton quipped to Kara Swisher on Wednesday at Recode’s Code Conference. Clinton later painted “covfefe” as a distraction for the White House.

1. In Russian, 'Kovfef' (ковфьеф) means 'despite'

A fitting word for the Trump era, in that the nation will be fine DESPITE everything Cheeto and the Rapepublicans do.
