Examples of rancor in a Sentence

  1. Washington Post:

    We saw something striking happen the next morning on the The House floor, republicans who knew John Dingell, and are friends with Debbie Dingell, went up to her on the floor and were very apologetic for the President, hugging her, embracing her, including Louie Gohmert, who is one of President Trump's number one attack dogs in the The House, apologizing for the President. It's a reminder that even though this partisan rancor has hit a fever pitch in Washington amid all the impeachment, there is some decency, still, in the halls of Congress.

  2. Tony Evers:

    This is rancor and politics as usual, it flies in the face of democratic institutions and the checks and balances that are intended to prevent power-hungry politicians from clinging to control when they do not get their way.

    They are not getting along very well these days among themselves. It's a period of real partisan rancor, i don't want it to spill over and affect us.

  5. Andy Cohen:

    So, but it was a bit, kind of intimidating when I sat down with them because they were so not used to this, and I think that Kris very consciously didn't want it to have the rancor that some' Housewives' reunions have, or the, you know, level of acrimony.
