The sentence is:

I'm of the fuck covid opinion.

A friend of mine stated it and I would like to know if someone could explain why it should or should not be written differently.

    @niamulbengali It's just the punctuation. Compare: “I’m of the ‘Screw that idea’ opinion.” – tchrist Jan 24 at 4:49
  • @tchrist, indeed, it's just the punctuation, but isn't that really the answer to the question? For that matter, doesn't tagging this question as one about compound adjectives, essentially amount to answering it? – jsw29 Jan 24 at 18:20
  • @jsw29 If does not explain the grammar as requested. Do please feel free. – tchrist Jan 24 at 18:22
  • 'Be of the X opinion' is an idiom. X must modify 'opinion'; it is often 'former' etc, though it is sometimes spelled out ("I'm of the repainting yearly works out cheapest opinion"). – Edwin Ashworth Jan 25 at 16:58

It's an instance of the general form

I'm of the X opinion

which means about the same thing as

My opinion is X

Inverting the sentence tends to emphasize the opinion.
