How to use fiery in a sentence?

  1. Mitch McConnell:

    I think it's fair to say the passion that John McCain brought to John McCain work was unsurpassed in this body. In more than 30 years as a senator, he never failed to marshal a razor-sharp wit, a big heart and a fiery spirit, when John McCain saw an issue the same way you did, you knew you'd just found your most stalwart ally. You'd thank your lucky stars. Because when you found yourself on the other side of that table, as I think all of us learned, you were in for a different kind of unforgettable experience.

  2. Abdel Rehim Saeid:

  3. Gretchen Whitmer:

    We can not be defeated. We must move forward together. When we do that, we can not be defeated. Floyds death while in custody of Minnesota police officers has sparked fiery protests in every state of the country for over a week, including the past 7 days in Detroit. Gretchen Whitmer lifted her states stay-at-home order this week and moved most of her state into Phase 4 of reopening. While Michiganders are no longer required to stay home, we must all continue to be smart and practice social distancing, and encourage those who meet the criteria to get tested for COVID-19, Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement. Gretchen Whitmer, considered a possible Democratic pick for vice president in 2020, on Monday called President Trumps response to protests and rioting deeply disturbing and a clear signal that this administration is determined to sow the seeds of hatred and division.

  4. Joseph Addison:

    It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.

  5. Hasan Cemal:

    Erdogan has to date never held a real press conference, because he never wished to take and answer questions from those opposing him ... Even the coup leaders including Evren held press conferences, i harshly criticized Turgut Ozal. He still allowed me on his plane for trips, invited us to his press conferences and engaged in fiery debates with me and other opposition journalists. Even the second-class democracy of those times was better than today.
