NFL players who protest became President Donald Trump's latest target on Friday, when he hyped a crowd at a Huntsville, Alabama, rally with word of what action he would take against any player who dared kneel during the national anthem. Soon after, Twitter users returned Trump's NFL critiques with the hashtag #TakeAKnee. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now," Trump said on Friday. "Out.
Teresa Kaepernick didn't come to play. Colin Kaepernick's mother responded to President Donald Trump's critiques of NFL players protesting on Friday when she caught wind of them via a tweet from Daily Beast contributor Jamil Smith. The consensus on Twitter? It was perfect. "Trump referred to any NFL player who protests racism and police violence as a 'son of a b*tch' who should be fired," Smith tweeted. Kaepernick responded: "Guess that makes me a proud b*tch!"
When a gunman opened fire last Sunday in Orlando, Florida gay nightclub Pulse, killing at least 49 and injuring 53, the event seemed singular in its senseless hate for LGBTQ people. But just three weeks before, a similar scene unfolded at a gay club in Xalapa, Veracruz. According to TeleSur, multiple armed men entered La Madame on May 22, killing seven people and injuring at least 12 after firing into a packed club of about 180.
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".
