How to use rape in a sentence?

  1. Lindsey Graham:

    At the end of the day, I'm trying to distinguish ourselves from our enemies, they crucify people, they rape women, they sell them into slavery, they will kill people's children before their eyes.

  2. Valerie Amos:

    The government, armed and terrorist groups, continue to kill, maim, rape, torture and take Syria to new lows that seemed unimaginable a few years ago, we need the numbness to the senseless violence and the apparent apathy to end.

  3. Susan Collins:

    Some of the allegations levied against Judge Kavanaugh illustrate why the presumption of innocence is so important, i am thinking in particular not of the allegations raised by Professor Blasey Ford, but of the allegation that, when Blasey Ford was Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh drugged multiple girls and used their weakened state to facilitate gang rape.

  4. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

    The president was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members who enter the country illegally and whose deportations are hamstrung by our laws, this is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of ‘rape, control and kill.’ If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcomed to. Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.

  5. Hannibal Buress:

    It's even worse because Bill Cosby has the f--king smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. He gets on TV, 'Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom.' Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches, 'I don't curse onstage.' Well, yeah, you’re a rapist.
