On Saturday, the website created by Fox News pundit Tucker  Carlson—The Daily Caller—shared video of a horse who owes her name to a slip of the presidential digits.

The 3 year-old filly's name is Covfefe—and she's on a winning streak. Saturday she won the Breeder's Cup at the Santa Anita racetrack.

The Daily Caller captioned the post:

"A horse named 'Covfefe' won a Breeder’s Cup event at Santa Anita today. Named after President Trump’s famous mistweet, she has now won six of her first eight races."

From there, Mitch Roschelle of PricewaterhouseCoopers shared it with the simple hashtag #Covfefe. Then it caught President Donald Trump's attention.

Trump disputed Tucker Carlson/The Daily Caller's characterization of the origin of the nonsense word. Instead of a mistweet, perhaps it was a bit of higher wisdom.

Trump retweeted Roschelle with the caption:

"Great! But how do you know it was a 'mistweet?' May be something with deep meaning!"

Some Trump supporters didn't find a deep meaning, but did find a deep state conspiracy which included Google scrubbing all records everywhere of the completely real word covfefe.

But despite how compelling the evidence was of "the Google" removing a word from existence immediately after Trump tweeted it, most people had a simpler explanation.

Others focused on how deep the President is.

Others wondered when the President found time to tweet.

While some pointed out covfefe did gain meaning in 2017 as a legislation acronym.

Others were just done being polite.

Covfefe—the horse—has an impressive pedigree. Her owner, Jaime Roth, said:

"We gave the name to her because we thought she was special and we thought the name was kind of funny."
