WI Gov's Earth Day message: 3 words, 1 exclamation point, emoji

WI's right-wing GOP Gov. and corporate bellhop captain threw himself into comprehensive Twitter and Facebook Earth Day commentary.

Here is his identical, incisive and action-packed posting from both platforms. 

Happy Earth Day! 🌎
I'd put up this blog item on Saturday about Earth Day, 4/22, and a few other things, and in retrospect, I'm glad I managed to write about you know whom without mentioning his name
We were all fortunate to have lived in Wisconsin when Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day's originating inspiration, served the people as Governor and US Senator, and left additional legacies as varied as the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program and a strengthened Wilderness Society.
The contrast with how far away from his legacies and through how much toxic and partisan mud we've been dragged - - and for whom - - is as obvious as is the need to begin repairing all that on election day, November 6th, 2018, or what we in Wisconsin should be calling Earth Day 2018 2.0.

Also don't read too much into Walker's use of an exclamation point!

That's rather routine for him - - 

. Excited for the 2018-2019 season. Looks like the thinks Green Bay will compete for the Lombardi Trophy!
- - unlike the triple !!! he threw Trump's way a few weeks ago about tariffs hurting Wisconsin dairy farmers:
Walker said he spoke with Trump Monday and Tuesday about the dairy crisis.   
“It was great to talk to you this morning,” Walker told Trump on Twitter after the conversation. “Thanks for supporting WI dairy farmers!!!”
Editor's note: Emoji spelling corrected in headline.
