Examples of crooked in a Sentence

  1. Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy:

    They got a lot of crooked things going. That they're vicious. That they shouldn't have brought impeachment.

  2. Donald Trump:

    Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher, likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women's health issues. Therefore, as much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders -- and it would be an easy payday -- I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.

  3. William Ruto:

    Anybody caught in any future doping scandal will be jailed for three years or fined 3 million Kenyan shilling ($29,721) because we want to get rid of crooked people misleading our athletes from our midst.

  5. Eric Trump:

    The system is rigged, it's crooked, there was no voting. I didn't go out there to make a speech or anything, there's no voting.
