The appointment of John F. Kelly as White House chief of staff was roundly applauded, even as it met with some skepticism. Whereas Kelly's predecessor, Reince Priebus, came to be viewed as a punch line, Kelly—a gruff retired Marine Corps general—instantly commanded respect, even among the Trump family. He quickly set about bringing a sense of military discipline to an unruly West Wing, firing Anthony Scaramucci, cracking down on the whisper campaign against National Security Adviser H.R.
Donald Trump already had few friends in the Senate when he further alienated himself from his party by defending a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that drew scores of Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis to the normally idyllic college town. There were “very fine people,” on both sides, the president argued in a stunning press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday, referring to a torch-bearing mob that surrounded a Confederate statue.
Beginning early last year, a low-level Trump campaign staffer reportedly sent more than a half-dozen requests for senior staffers or the candidate—then on the verge of securing the Republican presidential nomination—to meet with Russian officials. Those attempts concerned more senior members of Trump’s campaign, including Paul Manafort, and Sam Clovis, who cautioned against such overtures.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
