CNN hosts troll national spelling bee champion to spell ‘covfefe’


CNN isn’t done with Trump’s covfefe Twitter blunder as they asked newly crowned National Spelling Bee champion Ananya Vinay to spell the not-a-word in an interview on Friday.

When her spelling instincts kicked in and Vinay asked for a definition, the hosts replied that covfefe means, “a nonsense word made up by the President of the United States in a late-night tweet,” that its language of origin was “gibberish”, and that “it could be a noun, but may be used as a verb and as an insult.”

Vinay came up one letter short spelling C-O-F-E-F-E as opposed to covfefe and the hosts replied that it was, “the only good answer we’ve heard about that word in days.”
