A South Carolina man has just cemented himself in internet history with a vanity plate for his BMW X5.Thirty-four-year-old Russell Cranford describes himself as having a “fun-loving personality.” The owner of a resume writing business, Cranford said “I always wanted a personalized plate but never could come up with anything clever.”
That was of course before Donald Trump tweeted his now-famous typo: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”
The original tweet was thought to refer to “coverage,” but apparently mid-tweet, he put the phone in his pocket, slammed it down on the desk or whatever presidents do when they’re not tweeting, and hit “Tweet” by mistake.
The internet lost its collective mind for a day as people tried to figure out what “covfefe” meant.Memes sprung up like daisies.
And even the president himself joined in with the fun.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

But it is Cranford who will have the last, and longest-lasting laugh. He’s now got “covfefe” on his car forevermore.Per WISV-TV, Cranford says he voted for President Trump and that most people who have seen his plate see his humor and can’t believe he was lucky enough to get the tag.
“[I am] not really trying to express anything,” Cranford said. “I’m known for always making jokes and being foolish, so the plate fits my personality well.”
And we’re all getting a good chuckle too.
