This week the nation watched as an increasingly desperate - even sad! - Donald Trump scrambled to shore up his bankrupt campaign. His latest attempt at a pivot - to use the pundits' preferred euphemism for blatant pandering - was pandering in the form of abandoning (pandbandoning?)
This week showcased the best and worst of America. American Olympians continued to dominate and inspire in Rio while, back home, the flailing and failing Trump campaign unveiled Trump 2.0. On Tuesday, just hours after saying he would not pivot and proclaiming "I am who I am," Trump named a new campaign manager and a new campaign CEO.
This week, as American Olympians made history and shattered records, Donald Trump continued setting his own record for most unstable, unqualified and dangerous presidential candidate in our country's history. An overshadowed and aggrieved Trump, who sees a very different America than the one making most Olympics-watching Americans proud, has achieved something truly remarkable: He has become unsatirizable, since his every utterance is already a punch line.
As I'm stepping down as editor-in-chief of HuffPost to launch Thrive Global, here is the note I just sent to all HuffPosters around the world. And here's the press release announcing the launch of Thrive Global.

Lately, Chegg has committed to gaining a deeper understanding of another subject central to college students' lives: sleep.
De toutes les inoubliables inventions de J.K. Rowling, une en particulier correspond plus en profondeur à la campagne en cours. C'en est spirituel. Alors que Donald Trump persiste à insulter et à blesser tout ce qui se trouve sur la trajectoire descendante me reviennent en mémoire les détraqueurs, qui ont fait leur première apparition dans Harry Potter et le prisonnier d'Azkaban.
This week marked the beginning of the Olympic Games in Rio, but closer to home, Donald Trump gave us daily reminders of what a truly disastrous performance looks like. Trump opened the week by continuing his bizarre and appalling war against the Khan family, and then claimed to have seen a "top secret" video of U.S.
Long before Donald Trump became the most dangerous, unstable, and unqualified presidential nominee in American history - that is, back when he was just vying for that distinction - it became necessary to look around in search of something, anything, that might explain his rise.
The unquestioning belief that work should always have the top claim on our time has been a costly one. And it has got worse as technology has allowed a growing number of us to carry our work with us - in our pockets and purses in the form of our phones - wherever we go.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
