Examples of Whose in a Sentence

  1. Nancy Baron-Baer:

    We strongly condemn Professor Kaukab Siddique's reported remarks targeting the LGBT community, the Jewish community, and women, such comments are deeply offensive and outrageous, especially coming from a professor whose statements reflect bigoted stereotypes.

  2. Mary McCarthy:

    The American, if he has a spark of national feeling, will be humiliated by the very prospect of a foreigner's visit to Congress -- these, for the most part, illiterate hacks whose fancy vests are spotted with gravy, and whose speeches, hypocritical, unctuous, and slovenly, are spotted also with the gravy of political patronage, these persons are a reflection on the democratic process rather than of it; they expose it in its process rather than of it; they expose it in its underwear.

  3. 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.

  4. Donald Trump:

    No, I don't, but let's see ... he's winning, so maybe now that he thinks he's winning, he can change who he is. He said he has the ability to change into anything he wants. We want a president who is consistent, whose compass points north, doesn't change when it suits them, need someone who is consistent in their views and life.

  5. Mort Crim:

    Today we may face some boring task or idle conversation that feels like a complete waste of time. Perhaps next week or next year we'll understand that nothing is wasted, that in the economy of our universe even a weed is simply a flower whose use has yet to be discovered.
