Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough on “Morning Joe” are basically going to completely ignore the gruesome anti-Trump Kathy Griffin story, believing that it’s “not worth doing”.
No… instead they’re going to focus on a typo Trump made on his Twitter account.
Trump deleted the tweet a few hours later but trolled around just a little:
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

As written for The Daily Caller by Amber Athey:
Of course, the photos of Griffin holding Trump’s bloody severed head are gross, but even Chelsea Clinton took the time to condemn them.
What did “Morning Joe” choose to cover instead?
In a preview of what was coming up next on the show, Brzezinski said they would be talking about Trump’s Twitter typo, where he wrote “covfefe” instead of “coverage.”
Then, the “Morning Joe” team would focus on allegations that Trump had given out his personal cell phone number to world leaders and asked them to call him directly on that line.
