Late last night, at 12:06 a.m. ET, popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп tweeted, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” That turned ‘covfefe’ into a trending twitter term and a global news story.

Then, early this morning, Трамп deleted the tweet, then followed up by tweeting, “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!”

According to sources, ‘covfefe’ is Russian for, “Person who buys millions of twitter followers to wage propaganda war.”

There was also potential rumors that Трамп was planning to fully exit the Paris climate accords which will hasten global climate change and end human life on the Planet, but, hey, #covfefe!

Speaking of missing, did you hear the latest about Ivanka Трамп’s Chinese shoe factory? Did you know she had a contract with a Chinese shoe factory?

So, there’s a company in Shanghai that produces shoes for a variety of brands, including Ivanka Трамп-branded shoes. The factory where the shoes are made has been accused of everything from spying on workers attempting to organize into labor unions to criminally low wages, mandatory unpaid overtime and more.

Three activists went to investigate the factory, and now two are missing and one has been arrested. The three activists were planning to publish a report on their findings next month. China Labor Watch released a statement begging popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп and First Lady, er, First Daughter Ivanka Трамп for help.

“We appeal to President Trump, Ivanka Trump herself, and to her related brand company to advocate and press for the release our activists,” China Labor Watch said.

In apparent response, Ivanka retweeted this morning, “@HarvardBiz “The 40-Year-Old Intern” offers insights on “returnships” that can help relaunch a career after a hiatus.”

There’s no word yet on whether the President or the First Lady, pardon, the First Daughter will try to help the activists. Sources say that China Labor Watch is considering tweeting at both and using the hashtag #covfefe to get their attention.

Under the backdrop of rising tensions between white supremacists and everyone else in Portland, Oregon, one Republican law-maker says that the Republican party should use some of those same militia groups for protection. This is after the murder in Portland of  Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Rick Best, 53,  by white supremacist Jeremy Christian. 21-year-old student Micah David-Cole Fletcher survived the attack with gruesome injuries. The three victims had come to the aid of two women being subjected to hate speech by Jeremy Christian on public transportation.

Multnomah County Republican Party chair James Buchal, interviewed about the attacks and the tensions in Portland, told the Guardian that, “I think that it is appropriate for Republicans to continue to go out there. And if they need to have a security force protecting them, that’s an appropriate thing too.” When asked to clarify if he meant hiring private security forces instead of using city or state police, Buchal said, “Yeah. And there are these people arising, like the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters… Because there are now belligerent, unstable people who are convinced that Republicans are like Nazis.”

So, for anyone keeping track, the NAZI party used private security forces in it’s early days, dubbed ‘brownshirts’ who both ‘protected’ party leaders and attacked various ‘undesirables’ in Germany.

I guess this means that Multnomah County Republican Party chair James Buchal might be one of those unstable people who are convinced that Republicans are like Nazis.
