Last week, Johnny Depp joked about killing Donald Trump. Specifically, he wondered aloud at Glastonbury music festival: “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? . . . It’s been awhile and maybe it’s time.”In answer to his question, it was 1865, when John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, and it’s not exactly remembered as a good moment in American history. And though Depp later apologized for the gaffe, it’s led many to wonder if this will end his career.
In the last episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, June (Elisabeth Moss) promised Janine (Madeline Brewer) that all of this will pass. That eventually everything will go back to normal, and people will sing karaoke and go out drinking again. She did not provide an answer as to how that will happen. The season finale begins to. Though it literally begins with terror. June recalls that when she and the other Handmaids first saw each other in the Red Center, they all had the same look in their eyes.
Man, do men ever get a lot of chances. When women mess up, they are expected to disappear forever. There are no second chances. Hell, let’s look at how people respond when women make bad jokes. I’ll spoil it for you: they get fired immediately. Last week the comedian Kathy Griffin made a video that featured her beheading Trump. I am not overly shocked by this, because I have been to a museum, and consequently have seen about a million pictures in classical art of redheads beheading powerful men.
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".
