While much of the world mocked Donald Trump’s weird “covfefe” tweet, at least one Fox News host saw it as a sign of greatness.
Trump made a show of being a good sport about it:
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
But leave it to Fox News to turn a Trump Twitter faux pas into a sign of Trump magnificence.
Media Matters caught Happening Now’s Jon Scott on the job today. Scott began a discussion with Politico’s Jake Sherman with a positive framing, saying, “People are enjoying it, you’ve got to give him that.”
Sherman agreed but he suggested that the tweet was a sign of Trump’s isolation and/or loneliness in the White House.
SHERMAN: If we can take one interesting thing away from this, [it would be that] the reports are true:…Donald Trump is in the residence late at night with his cell phone, firing off tweets, calling friends, calling advisors, calling other politicians, calling other lawmakers, which is kind of a new style of leadership for the country…Definitely a sign that the president is spending time with his cell phone late at night.
But Scott quickly turned back to a Glorious Trump narrative:
SCOTT: [Trump] often accused Hillary Clinton of not having the energy, the stamina to be president. So, he was up tweeting at 12:06 a.m., even if it wasn't exactly a, well, coherent tweet. And then at 5:00 a.m., he deleted it. So, I guess the president is, as he said, a man who needs only a few hours sleep. At any rate, he got 126,000 retweets and 160,000 likes for "covfefe."

So, Jon thinks Drumpf tweeting incoherently is a sign of increased stamina.
This guy, like Drumpf, also appeared incoherent, disheveled, and under the influence:
and, like Drumpf, I don’t think stamina had anything to do with it . . .
