Don't laugh - it's a serious question. Who would fill the hardest position in a Trump administration? Not Twitter stenographer. Not presidential hairdresser. We're talking about the man or woman who is going to get Mexico to pay for The Wall. Career diplomats have typically filled the post of U.S.
It's hard to imagine the two parties agreeing on much of anything on the day before the first 2016 presidential debate. Except, that is, Arnold Palmer. The champion golfer and inventor of the namesake drink died Sunday at age 87, prompting a wave of genuine grief on both sides of the aisle in Washington.
Republican lawmakers are under increasing fire for racially insensitive comments after the fatal police shootings of black men sparked unrest in two states. Remarks by Reps. Robert Pittenger, N.C., Tim Huelskamp, Kan., Steve King, Iowa, and ex-Rep.

It's hard to be Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) lately. The leading tea party agitator lost his primary in early August. And in case you missed it, lame-duck status has him acting a little erratic. First, he's threatening to force a vote on the impeachment of Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen despite an agreement among GOP colleagues to postpone it until after the election.
A House committee on Thursday is expected to begin the process of holding a former Hillary Clinton aide in contempt of Congress for his failure to appear before the panel under subpoena. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced it will mark up a contempt of Congress resolution if the ex-State Department aide, Bryan Pagliano, does not attend its 10 a.m.
Twitter lately has been spending a lot of time explaining what Donald Trump gets wrong about racial discrimination. The latest opportunity came overnight, after Trump told an audience in North Carolina that African-Americans are in the "worst shape that they've ever been in before - ever, ever." The responses write themselves, don't they?
If you want to peer into the mind of Donald Trump, Jr., look no further than his Twitter feed. He takes after his father in this way. Here's the latest from through that looking glass. In case you missed it, Trump, Jr.
Donald Trump's Twitter account runs on grudges. Just this weekend, he used it to criticize former Defense secretary Robert Gates, CNN, the New York Times and a new figure on his long list of enemies: Times columnist Maureen Dowd. Dowd managed to run afoul of Trump on Saturday as she promoted her new book on the election.
If you insult Harry Reid, don't expect to be let off easy - especially if you're Donald Trump. That's a lesson the Republican presidential nominee will learn in the coming days if he and Reid continue what is already becoming a nasty insult contest. Here's what happened in the latest bout.
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
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".
