White House press secretary Sean Spicer has an answer for everything. Inevitably, a reporter questioned Spicer during a press briefing about President Donald Trump’s viral “covfefe” tweet—and Spicer knew just what to say.

“The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant,” Spicer said when asked about the bizarre tweet during Wednesday’s press briefing. Though the since-deleted more than likely contained only a simple typo, many had their own ideas as to what exactly Trump meant—none of which included some secret language within the Trump administration, though an “alternative spelling” was considered. Many, of course, were skeptical over Spicer’s peculiar explanation.

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Trump tweeted, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe”—causing the internet to suggest a plethora of amusing ideas as to what Trump actually meant. He later wrote, “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!” Many came to the conclusion, after making numerous jokes, that the tweet was supposed to say “coverage.”

Who knew that Trump and “a small group of people” knew the meaning behind the seemingly mysterious typo all along? Seems legit.
