Rachel Maddow and I have decided to ignore the tweets but I will (perhaps Rachel does this too?) keep track of bird tweets (a 420 character 9-liner)

Rachel Maddow isn’t noting Trump Tweets anymore,

instead she’ll focus on his actions.

But I DO listen to “tweets:”

Titmouse (PeterPeterPeter); House & Purple Finches, White-breasted Nuthatches,

Northern Cardinal; Red-tailed & Red-shouldered Hawks

(piercing screams)

Great-horned, Barred, & Eastern Screech Owls.

Their tweets support courting & territory marking.

& I applaud the behavior vs blather focus of Rachel.

PATTY

This is what Rachel told TheWrap:  “We developed sort of an informal, internal mantra … which is that we basically cover [the Trump administration] as if they are a silent movie. I stopped covering the Twitter feed and we started covering only what they do rather than what they say.”

CAVEAT: For a belly laugh, I do like to watch SNL and their Trump Tweets take-offs:
