Conventional wisdom in liberal circles dictates that Democrats are going to win big in the 2018 midterms. Sure, the opposition party usually does well in these elections. However, we are seeing a lot of confidence from the left. They seem convinced that the Democrats will take back the Senate and some think they can take back the House as well. They seem convinced that the entire country hates Trump and that people are longing for Democrats to be in charge again.
All the liberal media wants to talk about lately is the fact that Trump allegedly called some third world countries a “s***hole”. Sure, that’s not the nicest word in the world. But, are we seriously trying to argue that Haiti isn’t a total disaster? We all know that liberals hate Trump but this is a bit much isn’t it? However, it doesn’t really matter because we don’t even know if Trump said it. We are now seeing several people walk back the claim that Trump said what he allegedly said.
All the media wants to talk about over the last day or so is the fact that Trump referred to some of the world’s most dangerous and impoverished countries as s***holes. They know that the term, albeit crude, is correct. If you were to define what constitutes a s***hole there is no doubt Haiti and El Salvador would check off those boxes. That’s not a nice thing to say but sometimes the facts on the ground aren’t always nice. The liberal left knows Trump didn’t say anything that bad.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
