On Thursday, Dec. 14, President Donald Trump's administration committed an inexcusable and unforgivable offense (well, for the word police, at least)! His choice of grammar was both offensive and insulting, but it was at the same time funny and amusing. In fact, nothing highlights how outrageous and absurd this event was better than the tweets about Trump's "redundancy and duplication" quote.
During a press conference at the White House on Thursday, Dec. 14, President Donald Trump said the Republican party's tax reform bill "will be the greatest Christmas present that a lot of people have ever received." Now, however, it looks like the tax bill is in danger of not getting passed by Christmas at all. That's because the question of if the tax bill will pass is now more a question of something else: will Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) vote for it? For now, that answer is a "no."
In the past, if you wanted to look back at how the year has gone for a particular president, you'd probably only need to check out the legislative record or the types of news headlines they made. In 2017, though, you could simply check social media profiles, especially for a president that's as active on social media as President Donald Trump. In fact, you only need to take a look at Donald Trump's best nine photos on Instagram to be reminded of what a truly unique year it has been.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
