Of all the men who have served as President, it seems unlikely that any of them loved birthdays more than former President George W. Bush. To mark President Donald Trump's June birthday, our #TBT series has been highlighting other moments from previous presidential birthdays. The only way to appreciate the full scope of Bush's love of birthdays is to look at several case studies. In the CNN Politics Instagram post above, you can see photos of Bush celebrating before and during his presidency.
(CNN) When it comes to policy, President Donald Trump has a decent record of at least pursuing his core campaign promises. Obamacare is on the ropes. The US is on its way out of the Paris Climate deal. He has tried, over and again, to enact some kind of travel ban, first pitched as a blanket halt on Muslim immigration before being edited to block people from six Muslim-majority nations. Where Trump falls curiously short, though, is in his day-to-day commitments. They'll come.
Editor's note: Following President Donald Trump's first birthday in office on Wednesday, we're taking a look back at other momentous presidential birthdays this month. One of the most iconic presidential birthday parties in American history was, first and foremost, a fundraiser. The bash was a celebration of President John F. Kennedy's birthday in 1962.
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".
