How to use colossal in a sentence?

  1. Mark Rozell:

    Lewandowski's role with President Donald Trump officially was in the context of a political campaign, months prior to the President taking office. As executive privilege is an implied Article II based presidential power, it does not apply to campaign activities or to the deliberations between a successful candidate and campaign staff, in short, this is a colossal overreach of the President's authority to claim executive privilege. There is no basis for it in this case.

    The ancestors of T. rex would have looked a whole lot like Timurlengia, a horse-sized hunter with a big brain and keen hearing that would put us to shame, only after these ancestral tyrannosaurs evolved their clever brains and sharp senses did they grow into the colossal sizes of T. rex.
