A Very Short Post about Bees and Bees


It’s well known by now that many an American has a Bee in her bonnet since Donald Trump became President.

By the way, can anyone have a bee in her bonnet nowadays since presumably no one wears bonnets anymore? Perhaps people should wear bonnets again? So Bees can get caught in them.

Then at least they would have a plausible explanation for their state of agitation which causes them to harass a 12 year old girl.

This deplorable incident happened recently when Scripps National Spelling Championship winner Ananya Vinay, was being interviewed by CNN anchors, Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo.

Towards the end of the interview, Camerota asked Vinay to spell ‘covfefe’, the word recently used by President Trump in one of his tweets that took the social media by storm with people guessing what the US leader could have meant by that word.

Vinay, sincerely tried to guess the spelling of the word, asked if there were any alternate pronunciation for it. She finally spelled it ‘cofefe’.

Camerota then told Vinay the correct spelling was ‘covfefe’ and added, “It’s a nonsense word. So, we’re not sure that its root is actually in Sanskrit, which is what you’re probably, uh, used to using, so, I don’t know. Anyway.”

Not exactly fair play, is it? Pestering a 12 year old, making comments about Sanskrit ( which is a very evolved and rich language, thank you very much) and making assumptions about the girl’s culture.

They say that a Bee is never caught in a shower, but- judging by the online responses to the CNN anchor’s behaviour- this Bee certainly was!
