How to use go bad in a sentence?

  1. David Fleming:

    I am a capitalist and I am a bit of a right winger, and I think in many ways the system we have got at the moment is really not a bad system. I think capitalism is a good thing. The only problem with capitalism is that it destroys the planet, and that it’s based on growth. I mean apart from those two little details it’s got a lot to be said in its favour.

  2. Smita Patel:

    I mean, usually we have hurricanes and bad storms and everything, but we get over that, right ? we are taking it a day at a time.

  3. Tim Murtaugh:

    Voters know China was a bad actor on the virus. The president made clear to pinpoint China as the origin of the virus, we're going to push this.

  4. South Africa:

    There are so many good things in South Africa but always in the past, we seem to look at all the bad things, we just decided, let's stand together and work really hard and play well on the field and then from that all the other things will come out later and I think that's what we did and with that we won Rugby World Cup.

  5. Nancy Pelosi:

    We weren't going to go because we had a report from Afghanistan that the President outing our trip had made the scene on the ground much more dangerous because it's just a signal to the bad actors, house Speaker Nancy Pelosi never give advance notice of going into a battle area. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just never do. Perhaps the President's inexperience didn't help him understand that protocol. The people around him, though, should have known that, because that's very dangerous.
