How to use subject in a sentence?

  1. Kipp Davis:

    These good intentions that draw from a place of faith are subject to some really gross manipulations.

  2. Robert Litt:

    I don't know that the department has ever encountered this situation where the reason a person isn't being charged with a crime is that the person is immune by virtue of his office and is subject to impeachment as a result, the more damaging the report is to the president, the greater the pressure is on Barr to release it, and paradoxically of course, if the report completely exonerates the president, then the president should want it released.

  3. Debra Johnson:

    It appeared that he punched the subject because he had a weapon in his hand at the time, is that force justified?

  4. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz:

    It is striking that the day after Donald Trump called for weakening NATO, withdrawing from NATO, we see Brussels, where NATO is headquartered, the subject of a radical Islamic terror attack, donald Trump is wrong that America should withdraw from the world and abandon our allies. Donald Trump is wrong that American should retreat from Europe, retreat from NATO, hand Putin a major victory and while he's at it hand ISIS a major victory.

  5. Kris Jenner:

    If I'm not honest because I'm afraid to talk to you about this subject, because I know it hurts, I understand that, am I doing it right, Khloe ? You can never do this right, OK ? There's no right way to do this.
