WASHINGTON — That President Donald Trump has his troubles is news as fresh as a thousand-year-old egg. From day one on the job, he has not missed an opportunity to get himself entangled in silly disputations, contradictions or denials of what he had said on camera only days or hours earlier. Many American commentators interpret these bizarre occurrences as signs of disorderly thought processes, as denials of reality or variances with the truth on the president’s part.
WASHINGTON — He had to do what he did. Had President Trump blessed the Paris climate change agreement last week he would be toast today at the hands of his political ‘base’ from California to the New York Island. Am I offering an excuse for his action? Far from it. I am talking a here-and-now villainy against such world order as we have at the time of the gravest peril in decades. I don’t think I’m overstating on Trump’s trap and motives.
WASHINGTON — When a prayerful wish for “a day without crisis” sums up the prevailing political scene in the world’s most powerful capital, it is clear Donald Trump’s America is deeply troubled. This is the soft version of reality here. The harsher one reveals utter incomprehension and the evolution of the ‘i’ (as in impeachment) word from an absurdity to a serious topic in the leading constitutional, political and legal circles.
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".
