How to use thug in a sentence?

  1. Chuck Schumer:

    Forty-two Republican senators chose today to stand with Vladimir Putin, i'm extremely disappointed that many of my Republican colleagues are too afraid of breaking with President Trump to stand up to a thug.

  2. Freddie Gray:

    Whether we call them a thug, a law breaker, a juvenile delinquent, it really doesn't matter. What matters is how do we take back our streets. And that's what men have been doing, going around, talking to these young men where they, are in their face, and letting them know, you can't control this community. It is not yours. You can't burn it down. You can't force people out. You can't threaten people.

  3. Sebastian Gorka:

    If you have a broad historical sense you will understand that even if Putin says he's killing terrorists or even if China says they're fighting the Uyghur nationalists that doesn't mean they're on our side, putin is a former KGB colonel, he's a thug, he's a vicious man. He runs a country in which journalists get murdered if they disagree with the Kremlin. China is the world's last communist dictatorship. It may be running around doing quasi-capitalist things but it is a one party state and to say that we have shared interests. No Mr. Trump, we don't and we should really stick to the friends we already have.

  4. Michael Moreno:

    Everyone sees me as this thug, you know, or gangster, you know. I did this because I'm a bad guy -- like that's not who I am, underneath the helmet and the pads, you know, I'm really a great kid.
