This is hilarious
Ever heard of covfefe? If you haven’t caught up with the news recently, Trump tweeted a out a message containing a typo, the word “covfefe”. What he meant is anyone’s guess, but the liberal media had a field day with it. And now, there’s a covfefe bill!
“You knew it was only a matter of time before “covfefe” starred in a House bill. The infamous word President Donald Trump made up during a late night tweet is now in the title of a new bill introduced by Representative Mike Quiqley, a Democrat from Illinois. This morning, he unveiled his “Covfefe Act,” which will expand the Presidential Records Act to include social media.
While there was a lighthearted aspect to the situation, Quigley believes that the situation highlights how Trump frequently deletes messages on Twitter that should be archived. In a statement issued today, Quigley says that the Presidential Records Act does not specify if all tweets should be archived, although the National Archives said in 2014 that social media should be recorded for historical purposes.
The goal of the bill is “To amend section 2201 of title 44, United States Code, to require the preservation of presidential social media accounts, and for other purposes,” it reads.
“In order to maintain public trust in government, elected officials must answer for what they do and say; this includes 140-character tweets,” Quigley, the co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Transparency Caucus, said in a statement.”
What a joke! Don’t worry folks — it’s still legal to block Twitter users. As far as archiving Trump’s tweets, sure, I have no problem with that. Suing him? Well, that’s a bit more absurd.
