Covfefe is just another presidential blunder, but the Contra meme was refreshingly brilliant

Covfefe is another Trump blunder
Setting aside his presidential blunder, putting covfefe into a gaming meme was a refreshing laugh amidst the depressing political news.
There's not much to smile about with the daily scandals surrounding trump. However, I tip my hat the the wonderful person who took this dimwitted tweet and put a "Contra" spin on it. THIS made me laugh out loud!

I love that this deranged nonsense from the president has nothing to do with video games, yet here it is on the Contra start-up screen. Brilliant!

June 12 Update:
In an odd twist of fate, Covfefe has become the acronym for Rep. Mike Quigley's (D-Ill.) legislation to classify presidential social media posts - including President Trump's much-discussed tweets - as presidential records. The Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement (COVFEFE) Act, which has the same acronym as an infamous Trump Twitter typo last month, would amend the Presidential Records Act to include "social media."

Presidential records must be preserved, according to the Presidential Records Act, which would make it potentially illegal for the president to delete tweets.
