Theoretically, this isn’t a bad idea. It would allow Clinton to keep Trump in check without wasting her time refuting his lies.

That said, there are a few problems. First, pigeons are widely disliked, even hated, birds.

Second, just you try to make “a small pigeon sound.” Seriously, try it right now. It’s somewhere between a coo and a throaty gargle, and it’s really not that easy to do.

Sexists would likely characterize Hillary’s pigeon-calling as “shrill.” Conspiracy theorists would spin it as one symptom of a rare infectious disease.

But let’s not give up yet. Perhaps another sound could serve the same purpose. Tongue-clicking can too easily come across as tut-tutting—again, another sexist trap. The ice cream truck song is too long. Maybe she could just do that “Meep” sound that Beaker the Muppet used to use for multiple purposes, Saturday Night Live‘s “drunk uncle’s” super-sonic whine of skepticism, or bring along a hairbrush with bristles she could run her fingers over, thereby getting the ASMR vote.

Just a thought.
