Woman gets ‘Covfefe’ OK’d for Ohio license plate; others not as lucky


President Donald Trump earlier this year posted a word on Twitter than nobody ever heard of.

Now that word, “covfefe,” is a vanity license plate for a northeast Ohio woman. However other states don’t allow the word on plates.

The Columbus Dispatch reported today that Brittany Scott thought it worked for her car. “It just fit. I thought it was hilarious.”

SLIDESHOW: Ohio’s banned vanity license plates list

Some states like Georgia had banned the word covfefe from license plates.

Ohio bans hundreds of words from appearing on vanity license plates. As of 2013, they included “OHELL,” “IH8NCAA,” “GIGOLO” and more (many of which contain graphic, profane or obscene references).
