How to use harshly in a sentence?

  1. President Barack Obama on Thursday:

    None of us are under any illusions. We're all aware of the potential pitfalls and there are plenty of reasons for skepticism, but history would judge us harshly if we did not do our part in at least trying to end this terrible conflict with diplomacy.

    It sort of jams the systems of gender that are so harshly in place in our culture, and it sort of confuses that for a second and ... creates a space where it's like: 'Oh. We're not just the clothes that we wear, we're not just what it says on our drivers license'.

  4. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Sweet blonde. Sadistic beauty teasing. Lyrical romance in your image. You are so beautiful that I feel nothing but love. I am drowning in the pleasure of love feelings being next to you. You are so beautiful that I have multiple throbbing dry orgasms. You are my sweet passion. I am so pleasant and sweet to my lips and tongue and even hands. Wonderful realism of true beauty. Your looks are so sweet and sweet. It's so beautiful that I start to moan with pleasure and breathe heavily from love. A harshly arousing complexion, so sweet and savory. You are sweet temptation. There is so much passion in me, well, just heat. My brains are turned off away from delight. Impossible to be saturated with the inspiring aesthetics of your infinitely beautiful body, shining in all shades of gold. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

Both had harshly criticized President Trump in the past and lobbied for Wall Street. Now, Pawlenty is coming back to Minnesota and—like Gillespie—doesn’t know how to deal with the current Trump Republican party.
