These are the best theories we found on the internet.
Late last night, Donald Trump left the world scratching their heads...again. And all it took this time was a mere seven letters. “Despite the constant negative press covfefe," the president tweeted (and later deleted) from his account. To which the internet replied: huh?

Since they're still coming (and still hilarious), we're rounding up some of the best, ahead.
