How to use badger in a sentence?

  1. Loni Love:

    I have not spoken with her, none of the girls have spoken to her — we’ve reached out, but we haven’t heard from her. People just want time. Youcan’t badger them or make them talk, it’s understandable.

  2. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona:

    I'm so sad to learn that Bill Badger has passed away. Bill was not only a great man and a proud Army veteran, he was a hero, on Jan. 8, 2011, Bill was wounded in the head by a bullet from the gun of my would-be assassin. Not even pausing to realize he had been injured, Bill ran towards the shooter and towards danger so that he could help subdue him until the authorities arrived. I believe that Bill helped save lives that morning. And I will always be grateful to him for his selfless, brave actions. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with Bill's loved ones as they mourn the loss of a great man.

  3. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio:

    It's tax day and while many Americans are filing their taxes with a groan, taxpayers in the Badger State have reason to cheer.

  4. Taylor Swift:

    When I testified, I had already been in court all week and had to watch this man’s attorney bully, badger and harass my team including my mother over insane details and ridiculous minutiae, accusing them, and me, of lying, i was angry. In that moment, I decided to forgo any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. This man hadn’t considered any formalities when we assaulted me, and his lawyer didn’t hold back on my mom – why should I be polite? I’m told it was most amount of times the word 'ass' has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court.

  5. John MacGovern:

    If you didn't fight back, he would just badger you, he may not have been on the national stage before, but I do not think it will faze him in the slightest. He will say what he believes and it will be very easy for him.
