On Sunday President Trump charged Andrew McCabe, the newly-fired former FBI deputy director, with creating 'fake memos' of their conversations, while suggesting James Comey, the fired former FBI director, with lying under oath. 'Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me. I don’t believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date. Same with lying James Comey,' Trump tweeted. 'Can we call them Fake Memos?'
President Trump gave himself double credit for the likely outcome of Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania, saying Democrat Conor Lamb was ahead in the vote tally because he's 'like Trump.' The president also claimed that the Republican contender, Rick Saccone, had received a Trump bump, making the race so close – though Saccone still lost in a district that had long voted for Congressional Republicans, and went for Trump in 2016 by 20 points.
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has finally found a way to sell his Trump book – he'll be writing about the president's distinctive management style. The New York Post first reported that Scaramucci inked a deal with Hachette publishing to write a tome titled 'The Blue Collar President: How Trump is Reinventing the Aspirational Working Class,' which will come out in September.
The @USTradeRep is backing @realDonaldTrump. A spokesperson tells me: "The President has been very focused on U.S. manufacturing and goods in trade relationships and the President is correct, the U.S. has a 17.6 billion deficit in goods with Canada."
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".
