How to use anchor in a sentence?

  1. Kevin Caves:

    [Larry] was an anchor, so he has catchphrases— and [saying,] ‘I love you’ to his family, and calling his dog, talking to his grandkids— these are audio clips that can then be put into a commercially available communication device, so when he hits the button to choose the phrase, it will play the phrase versus text to speech, a number of people who did this wait too long.

  2. Chris Christie:

    The entire conversation about 'anchor babies' is a distraction that makes us sound like we're anti-immigrant, and we're not, our party is not that way. We want people to do it legally. Do it the right way.

  3. Ben Smith:

    When we published the Steele Dossier in 2017, we were met with outrage from many corners -- a major news anchor and President President Donald Trump both deemed it' fake news' ; and several Russian businessmen, plus Michael Cohen, sued for defamation, as we have said from the start, a document that had been circulating at the highest levels of government, under active investigation by The FBI, and briefed to two successive presidents, is clearly the subject of' official action.' Moreover, its publication has contributed to the the American people's understanding of what is happening in their country and their government.

  4. Chris Cuomo:

    New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits harrassment, start cleaning New York up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but dont bring Fredo ! Trump said, tacking on a insult referring to Chris Cuomo, Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference is a nod to The Godfather films, and a character in the film who ultimately betrays Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference was first made by a Trump supporter last summer in a viral video that saw the television journalist get irate with the man for the insult. In the video, Chris Cuomo says the term was meant as a derogatory term for Chris Cuomo Italian heritage, similar to the N-word for African Americans. ( Punk-a ** b ***** s from the right call me Fredo, Chris Cuomo said in the video. My name is Chris Cuomo. Im an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather. He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.) DHS SUSPENDS GLOBAL ENTRY FOR New Yorkers ; WILL AFFECT 800K OVER 5 YEARS Chris Cuomo had said hes willing to restore federal access to driving records on a limited basis. But in a midday news conference, Chris Cuomo pledged not to let federal immigration agents see lists of people who had applied for a new type of license that doesnt require applicants to prove they are in the U.S. legally. If they think theyre going to extort New York into giving them a database of undocumented people, theyre wrong. I will never do that.

  5. Alfonso Aguilar:

    If they were to become the Republican nominees, they're not going to have a shot with Latino voters and that means they're not going to make it to the White House, not because of the term 'anchor baby' but because they want to end birthright citizenship.
