Today’s “Word of the Day” is “finagle“ and it is a verb meaning “to get or achieve something by cheating/deception; deceive, trick, cheat; to plan out something in an indirect/dishonest way; manoeuvre, mastermind, manipulate“.
Example Sentence: The border issue has been the achilles heel (weakness/weak point) of Brexit, the thorn (irritating thing) in the side of true believers in a “clean break” with the EU. So the prospect of an Irish-American politician on his way to the White House, just as Boris Johnson attempts to finagle his way round the problem, is an 11th-hour (last moment/minute) plot twist to savour (enjoy).
