    Just watch El Spicy backtrack in a day or two.

    The classic trump move would have been for Spicy to say they aren't official statements, only to have donald insist (with tweets) that they ARE THE MOST OFFICIAL STATEMENT THAT ANY PRESIDENT HAS EVER MADE IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.

    Damn. I haven't been keeping up. It's clear my "Road Guide to the White House 2017" is already outdated.

    This seems to mean the "covfefe" tweet was an official statement. But it was deleted. So is that a violation of the Presidential Records Act or not?

    I'm sure Twitter still has a backup, as nothing on Twitter servers ever really dies, but it would be nice to know whether it can be brought back for public access, to benefit future generations who may be doing linguistic research.

    Because 2017 has been a fairly covfefe year so far, and I expect it to get even covfefier before it gets better.

    No worries, twitter is on it either way no matter what the White House thinks:

    New bot turns President Trump's tweets into 'White House statements'
