It is unlikely but possible that the president does not know about the history of this American businessman who invested in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, succeeded amazingly but then ran afoul of the Stalinesque barbarity of the current Russian autocracy. If he does know about Browder and his experience in Russia, Trump's bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin is all the more farcical -- especially given the undoubted intervention of Putin's government in the 2016 election.
GOP leaders in Congress crossed their fingers and prayed that the candidate who ridiculed Muslims and Mexicans and joked about assaulting women would rise to the challenge of the presidency and become an effective leader. They mistakenly thought they could control him and pass their agenda.
By all counts, the appointment of Gen. John Kelly as White House chief of staff holds out the prospect of a badly needed turnaround to end the chaos, confusion and duplicity emanating from President Donald Trump and his administration. The abrupt dismissal of the foul-mouthed Anthony Scaramucci and other initial steps Kelly has taken suggest that he may be able to bring the kind of discipline and order demanded of â€” and now completely absent from â€” the highest office in the land.
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".
