Examples of blow-off in a Sentence

  1. Eugene Fidell:

    I think [ Trump ] was speaking with reckless indifference to the consequences of what President Trump was saying, as a citizen, I find Fox News deeply disturbing that anyone could blow off comments a candidate for the nation’s highest office makes on the basis that they are simply campaign rhetoric. We don’t have a more important exercise in our national civic life than presidential campaigns and to treat those as easy come, easy go in terms of significance of what people say is a very unfortunate development that should be resisted now.

  2. Fox News contributor:

    It's very clear that she was trying to give all these protesters-slash-rioters a chance to blow off steam and then stop. It didn't happen.

  3. Itza Pantoja:

  4. Bruce McIvor:

    That's a very different world than what you have currently ... where indigenous people rightly have the impression that in most situations, all that consultation is an opportunity for (the government) to blow off steam.

  5. Bryanna Reid:

    It's ok to understand other people. But it's not enough. Advertence is necessary too. Because it's easy to understand abstract person if you're not a victim but outside observer. Imagine you say to friend who needs your help: «I understand the man who stole from you because he was starved». Or that: «I understand that scumbag who raped you because his wife ran out on him and he wanted to blow off steam». Only most hard-hearted person can say that.
