You could practically see the T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase before it left Donald Trump's mouth on Wednesday night: "Such a nasty woman." The hashtag #nastywoman started trending almost immediately on Twitter. "From one nasty woman to another, you were an inspiration last night," Nancy Pelosi tweeted at Clinton.
A week ago, it would've seemed wildly unlikely to most people that Donald J. Trump, not Hillary Clinton, would be the candidate more likely to provoke a culture-wide shift in how we think of and talk about sexual assault.
And even as Hillary quietly worked this weekend to position the Trump tape to her maximum advantage, do you think she ever wondered to herself: How many national debates about inappropriate male behavior can one woman live through? Dear Jodi, I am no psychologist, although we're all sort of Clintonologists these days, and may have been since 1992.
"Lewd" was apparently not a strong enough word for the editors of The Washington Post when they tried to describe the contents of a recording they had acquired, in which Donald J. Trump is heard in a 2005 conversation with Billy Bush, the Access Hollywood host; they went with " extremely lewd " in their headline.
When I watch Donald Trump, I sometimes feel like Ingrid Bergman - not European and glamorous, but unnerved, as though I'm being gaslit, as in the famous plot of her old classic movie " Gaslight." The lights are flickering, but her character's husband, who is secretly a seriously bad dude, is convincing her that no such thing is occurring.
On Saturday, Donald Trump once again used his Twitter feed to kick up a news microcycle when he tweeted that if Mark Cuban, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and occasional Trump nemesis, was going to attend the debate, "perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!"
Times Insider delivers behind-the-scenes insights into how news, features and opinion come together at The New York Times. In this piece, Susan Dominus, a staff writer for The Times Magazine whose profile of Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Sunday's Arts & Leisure section, muses on some eerie similarities between the trappings of her own life and those of the leading TV characters Ms. Parker has played over the last two decades.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton arguably had one of her most effective public appearances in months, and it happened on the website Funny or Die. Clinton appeared as a guest on " Between Two Ferns " with Zach Galifianakis, a semi-aggressive, extremely rumpled comedian and sort-of talk show host who makes David Letterman look painfully earnest by comparison.
Sarah Jessica Parker was waiting for a menu at a restaurant in Hastings-on-Hudson, a Westchester County suburb of New York, when a 50-something man in a polo shirt and shorts showed up at her table. "I'm out of your face right after this little note I made for you - check it out," he said.
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".
