How to use galling in a sentence?

  1. Brian Garfield:

    I don't think he is a monster but I wish he would talk less about defending himself and more about his failings, it's a little galling to be lectured on transparency by people who are lying to us.

  2. Thomas Babington Macaulay:

    Nothing is so galling to a people not broken in from birth as a paternal, or, in other words, a meddling government, a government which tells them what to read, and say, and eat, and drink and wear.

  3. The Guardian:

    I’ve realised that most men, good men, the men that I love, there is a cut-off in their ability to understand. They simply cannot understand what abuse is like on a daily level, i honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can’t tell a woman about their abuse. A man cannot do that. No one can. It is so individual and so personal, it’s galling when a powerful man steps up and starts dictating the terms, whether he intends it or not.

  4. Chuck Schumer:

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a' smear job.' Let me repeat that, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a' smear job' and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should apologize to her immediately, it is galling -- galling for the Republican leader who has done more than maybe anyone else to politicize the Supreme Court nomination process, to make these trumped up, hyperbolic charges.

  5. Jon Sherman:

    What's really galling about how severely restrictive the voter ID law requirements are for students, how many traps and hoops that are for them to navigate, is that Wisconsin has the most restrictive voting regime overall, and basically the whole country, in order to vote there.
