How to use mock in a sentence?

  1. Adam Schiff:

    I discovered something very significant by mocking the President and that is for a man who loves to mock others, he does not like to be mocked. As it turns out, he's got a pretty thin skin. Who would have thought it ? never mind that I said I wasn't using his words before I said, and I wasn't using his words after I said it, and I said I was making a parody of his words --' It's an outrage ! He mocked the President, that Schiff ! Terrible !'.

  2. Ugo Okoroafor:

  4. John Dowd:

    I do not intend to address every inaccurate statement attributed to me -- but I do want to make this clear : there was no so-called' practice session' or're - enactment' of a mock interview at the Special Counsel's office, further, I did not refer to the President as a' liar' and did not say that he was likely to end up in an' orange jump suit'. It was a great honor and distinct privilege to serve President Trump.

  5. Feltham:

    The hooting fowler seldom takes much game. When a man has a project in his mind, digested and fixed by consideration, it is wise to keep it secret till the time that his designs arrive at their despatch and perfection. He is unwise who brags much either of what he will do or what he shall have, for if what he speaks of fall not out accordingly, instead of applause, a mock and scorn will follow him.
