Covfefe Is Nothing New in the Hamptons

The world is going crazy over President Trump‘s supposed mistake tweeting, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” at 12:06 a.m. on the morning of May 31, 2017, but it turns out covfefe is nothing new here in the Hamptons. We’ve poured over our photo archive and pulled up several examples of the word’s use from Westhampton to Montauk, and in all seasons.

We salute the President for using this elegant, albeit relatively unknown, term. And we’re backing our man with this photographic proof.
