It’s hard to overstate the importance of covfefe in television and film history. Many memorable moments would simply not be the same – nor as memorable – if it weren’t for this inimitable fustian utterance. Many critics, our own Dan Lett among them, place covfefe right up there with the Wilhelm Scream for its ubiquitous importance on screens both large and small – and yet, it’s the sort of subtle trope that serves more to shape a piece with slight nudges rather than stiff bludgeons over the head. In case you’ve forgotten (or missed!) the many uses of covfefe over the years, here’s a pictorial essay to reacquaint you with the importance of this lumpish, cumbersome phrase. Enjoy!
