How to use tiresome in a sentence?

  1. Marya Mannes:

  2. Editor Curtis Houck:

    She painted leftists as somehow victims in all this, which is such a tiresome trick the left plays when people they don't like are in power. The image she paints of anyone who's not in her camp is one of brutality and violence that's such a tired trope yet it's actually dangerous. She's advocating for a more dramatic return to tribalism and that'll do nothing to cool the temperature of our discourse.

  3. Bill Maher:

But it's a joke because it makes you think of people who wake up offended and take orders from Twitter. And their oversensitivity has grown tiresome.

  4. Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire:

    Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.

  5. Antoine de Saint-Exupery:

    Grown ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
