Merriam-Webster Ain’t Playing Trump’s Game

Donald Trump might be America’s midnight wordsmith, but Merriam-Webster isn’t bowing to all the covfefe — the President’s made-up lingo will NOT be in their good book.
Merriam-Webster’s editor-at-large, Peter Sololowski, tells TMZ … Trump’s now infamous word won’t be making an appearance in their dictionary anytime soon, despite TONS of people trying to define it this week.
Sololowski believes covfefe was simply a typo, and says MW doesn’t create entries for what it considers misspelled words. MW’s website’s been flooded with covfefe searches since Trump’s late night tweet … and Sololwski says they’re serving up suggestions like coffee, coven, cover, covet and covey.
BTW … White House sources tell us they maintain what Sean Spicer said Wednesday — that covfefe was deliberate … and its true meaning is known only to a select group.
Very select. Like … one, we’re guessing.
