Babin, a Republican congressman and erstwhile dentist, shared some profound thoughts about Donald Trump's "nasty woman" comment on the Alan Colmes Show yesterday evening. Via MSNBC: "You know what, she's saying some nasty things," the Texas congressman answered.Colmes asked again if the comment was appropriate, to which Babin responded, "Well, I'm a genteel Southerner, Alan.""So that means no?"
In The Washington Post today, Fordham University professor Charles Camosy argues that Trump represents an existential threat to the pro-life movement:[I]f he is elected president, our opponents on abortion will be able to rightly point out that the anti-abortion movement is led by a misogynist, racist, narcissist who is blinded by his own privilege.
Every episode of Morning Joe is special, but today's episode was truly very special. Morning Joe bullied Bill Kristol and almost made him cry. And grade-obsessed android and objective member of the elite media Mark Halperin dropped by to decry the elite media's fixation on Trump's refusal to say he would respect the results of the election.
At the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton slipped in a dig at her opponent while explaining how she wants to raise taxes on the wealthy to help pay for Social Security."My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald's-assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it," she said.
According to a new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute/The Atlantic, most white evangelicals now believe that a politician can be immoral in private and ethical in public. That's a significant shift from 2011, when less than a third agreed with the same position: Public Religion Research Institute It's tempting to pin this uptick solely to Donald Trump, but that doesn't quite capture ...
The leaked emails show that Hillary Clinton's initial long list of vice presidential candidates was organized into seven "rough food groups." These groups were, apparently, as follows: Latino men, white women, boring ol' white men, black men, buff military men, the 1 percent, and, last and seemingly least, man of the people Bernard Sanders.

Lessig, the Harvard professor and former single-issue presidential candidate, was in Iceland when the news broke of his guest appearance in the hacked emails of Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton's campaign. Presumably, Lessig does not have an international data plan, for when he landed at JFK his inbox was "flooded with questions" about this exchange between Podesta and Tanden, the presiden...
According to The Huffington Post, Donald Trump criticized Khloe Kardashian's weight during a 2009 taping of Celebrity Apprentice, before firing her from the show. He described her as a "piglet" and wondered aloud why the show couldn't "get the hot one" (presumably a reference to Kim Kardashian West).
Trump has partly defended himself from a wave of allegations of sexual assault and harassment by arguing that he does not know the victims. Melania Trump's lawsuit against a People magazine reporter who accused Trump of groping her exists for this reason-the entire lawsuit is about the reporter's claim that she and Melania were "friendly," which Melania denies.
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
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".
