Democrats have been working overtime doing what they do best – wasting taxpayer money to come up with stupid laws that only serve their political agenda.
Case in point, Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois who introduced the not-so-cleverly named “Covfefe Act” that seeks to make it illegal for President Trump to delete his tweets.
Nevermind the fact that everything Trump tweets is immediately archived by hordes of his detractors hoping for just that – a delete, so they can claim “score!”
Quigley would dash all the fun for his fellow leftists if The Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement (Covfefe) Act came to fruition.
The bill would make Trump’s tweets and all his social media posts classified as presidential records which could make deleting the posts an illegal act, the Hill reported.

“President Trump’s frequent, unfiltered use of his personal Twitter account as a means of official communication is unprecedented. If the President is going to take to social media to make sudden public policy proclamations, we must ensure that these statements are documented and preserved for future reference. Tweets are powerful, and the President must be held accountable for every post,” Quigley said in a statement.
The term “covfefe” blew up when President Trump made a typo in one of his infamous tweets. Like clockwork, the left and their media lapdogs made a huge deal over the tweet and the typo-term as since gone mainstream.
The vast majority of folks on Twitter seemed to agree that the Covfefe Act is a colossal waste of time:
Archive them. Litteraly 2 clicks

imagine being so inept at your job that you develop legislative action centered around a misspelling on Twitter.

Imagine! And to think Quigley is from Illinois … it’s not like that state doesn’t have major issues. Surely, he has better things to do, no?
These people make too much to sit around and write laws about twitter named after internet memes

Is there nothing better to do than a COVFEFE Act? How much do these people get paid?

A hell of a lot more than most of the people forced to fork over tax dollars to pay their salaries.
Aren’t there better things to focus on then whether Trump deletes his tweets or not. I despise him but he has every right to do so

This is just depressing. Like, instead of doing stuff for the American people you’re salty that he deleted a fucking typo. Dems=pathetic.

We need less stupid laws not more.

Pointless. people archive tweets of notable people all the time, and the archives can’t be deleted. all of trumps tweets are probably saved.

There are already several bots automatically retweeting him for posterity. We don’t need a LAW. Are people getting paid for this nonsense?

And the backlash went on and on, but at least one person touched on someone who completely deleted their records — with hammers and Bleach Bit.
But I bet they didn’t have a problem with Hillary deleting her emails and destroying her server and mobile devices.

No problem at all.
