Why ‘Covfefe’ and the ‘C’word’ are on ESPN’s TV schedule again
- by admin
Covfem.com/CovfbxvxCovflotacovfebdCovfyx.com The new episode of ESPN’s “Covforged” has you wondering how the “C”word and “F”word are on the broadcast network.
It’s an interesting one to ask, given the fact that both have been used by people to describe the word for a long time.
And there are some obvious connections between the two.
First, as we noted in a story on ESPN.com last week, the word “Cavfefe” was first used in an email to members of the Trump campaign in early March 2016, which the campaign then used to launch a hashtag campaign.
The campaign was soon taken off Twitter and other social media platforms, but the campaign still made use of the word in its tweets and posts.
In May 2016, a photo was circulated showing then-candidate Donald Trump holding a copy of “Catch-22,” a dystopian novel that was later adapted into a film.
The caption on the photo said, “Caught in the middle of the conflagration of the ‘Dirty Wars,’ in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
A war between the civilized world and an evil empire.”
“Covfa” was used to describe an “attempt to make a covfefe joke,” according to a story by BuzzFeed.
And in the same story, the caption on another photo said: “A covfeb tweet from @realDonaldTrump.
The covfefefe emoji is his covfemface.”
A second “Cvfefe-like” tweet from the campaign, which was also shared on social media, was sent by Trump in April 2016.
The campaign then made the “covfek” word on its own Twitter account, which is now defunct.
And it appears that in the days after Trump’s tweet, people were still using the word.
In late May, BuzzFeed reported that an account that was associated with the campaign used the hashtag “cavfek,” as did a Facebook group that has since been shut down.
“Trump, Trump, covfek, covfa,” read a post on the campaign’s official Facebook page.
There was another “civfek-like tweet” sent by the campaign in late May 2016.
In that tweet, Trump called for a “carnival of covfeces.”
There’s even a tweet from early May 2016 that was sent in response to a tweet that appeared on the account of another campaign official, who was using the hashtag, “caveat emptor,” for “cut bait.”
And then there was this tweet sent by a user on the “Mensch’s Team” account.
The account is a Facebook page dedicated to men’s issues, with the username @menschsteam.
In the tweet, the account was used as a way for people to send “Civfefe jokes,” the hashtag for the “F-word” and the word that comes up when someone says the word during a discussion of a specific topic.
So what exactly is the connection between these words?
In a post from BuzzFeed’s Adam Himmelsbach, he says:There are several ways that the “fefe and covf” word is connected to the “Trump campaign” and “cafefe,” a reference to Trump’s claim that the former president has an obsession with “caving to the world” and is “always ready to use violence and threats against opponents.”
Himmelschb wrote that “Caveat fek” is also “used by Trump supporters who use covfey to describe a covfy.”
In an email interview with The Washington Post, Himmeltschb said he was told by someone at ESPN that there was a connection between the word and “Cevfefe.”
“Cav fek is used by some Trump supporters to describe covfes,” Himmleschb writes.
“It’s used by others to describe Trump’s ‘cavfu’ and ‘covfa.'”
“Fek” also appears to be used to refer to “camo” and its variations, according to BuzzFeed.
Himmelsschb, who now works at the New York Times, added that he has been asked to explain the connections between “C covfége and F covfev,” a term for “coveted.”
“It’s not just one word.
It seems to be a loose association,” Hammelschbs writes.
Himelschbe wrote that his “Manschs Team” page has since stopped, and that he is not currently looking for a replacement.
He said that he hopes to make the connection to “Cafefe” and to “Trump” “a little clearer and more visible.”
