Whether you love our commander in chief or you’re Kathy Griffin (yikes), one thing we all can agree upon: Trump’s Tweets are hella cray. So cray, in fact, that the president managed to create a new word during one of his nightly social media tirades. See below:
While it appears to be a simple slip of the small fingers, the typo has ignited a firestorm of parodies, memes, and hashtags that attempt to integrate the new word into our daily lexicon. And since we’re always of the food-and-drink mind here at Chowhound, it’s no surprise that our (and probably every American’s) mind went straight to coffee. (Or some Russian-esque spelling of it. Ba-dum-bump.)
Since Donald Trump is a businessman, it only makes sense for him to capitalize on this gaffe by releasing a branded line of “covfefe.” In fact, we’d like to recommend a particularly trendy (and frankly, orange) variety that’s not only unique in color, but also ridiculously healthy: the turmeric latte.
For those who are unfamiliar with the root, turmeric contains curcumin, a polyphenol (antioxidant-heavy micronutrient) that is known for its anti-inflammatory and immunity boosting benefits. When the spice is brewed with coffee and mixed with the dairy product of your choosing, it can make for a tasty, spicy, and nutrition-heavy treat.
Though Trump should probably eliminate caffeine altogether (how does he have the energy to be tweeting away after midnight?), we really think we’re on to a major branding and, most importantly, country-uniting opportunity. The president will be giving Americans something they love (at a subsidized price, we hope), but in a healthy, funny, and self-deprecating manner.
Cheap, wholesome coffee and zero mention of #fakenews? Now THAT’S making America great again.
