Examples of unsurprising in a Sentence

  1. Mike Litt:

    Oversight of the forbearance process is woefully inadequate, so it's unsurprising that the biggest coronavirus problems are related to mortgages.

  2. Stefan Worrall:

    We're seeing a perfect storm of the kind of negativity that feeds into people's fears and underscores the dangers lurking in a market where sentiment is very sensitive, it's unsurprising the yen's recent weakness has reversed given the sour macro sentiment arising from events like the natural disaster, the failure of the OPEC meeting to follow through on the encouraging promise it had shown, as well as smaller geopolitical risks like the impeachment going on in Brazil.

  3. Nicole Neily:

    It’s unsurprising that NEA leadership is demonizing parents and concerned citizens who've expressed their concerns about the state of America's schools – after all, over the past two years it’s become abundantly clear that union leaders' primary objective is to maintain their iron grip on power –student achievement and welfare be damned, learning loss has disproportionately impacted disadvantaged students, and mental health of students and parents alike have suffered. Yet when individuals try to raise these points, they are smeared as ‘radical’ and ‘extremist’ in an attempt to shame, silence, and marginalize families.

  4. Feng Yuan:

    It is unsurprising that both cases have drawn such wide attention, given( Kris Wu) and Alibaba's high profile, but this also serves as a reminder that for many other cases of sexual harassment and assault, if the accused are not so famous or influential,( victims) might not have their voices heard at all.

  5. Hakeem Jeffries:

    There are complicating factors in connection with the negotiations that are ongoing, in part that involve some of the law enforcement organizations at the national level trying to torpedo the progress that has been made. And that’s quite unfortunate because we can’t have a situation where a genuine bipartisan effort to achieve police accountability, it’s actually written by those police organizations that we’re trying to hold accountable — that makes zero sense. And so this is an obstacle and a stumbling block, but not an unsurprising one, because we always knew that it would exist and I still believe that it can be overcome as part of the effort to transform policing in America.
