How to use flippant in a sentence?

  1. Mallory Quigley:

  2. Melissa George:

Is Australia really so unforgiving that those flippant and somewhat ridiculous remarks will be held against her for years ? I just wanted to say sorry, Melissa George, you don’t deserve it.

  3. Pete Seat:

    Politicians have survived plenty of unfortunate statements and events, but Trump is turning his greatest asset into a weakness. Flippant comments eventually catch up with you.
