Blatanat Maneuver:首先请注意这个词美式与英式的写法不一样,美式:Maneuver,英式:manoeuvre,据剑桥词典符合本段话意的解释:

Blatant:obvious or intentional, and done without worry about what others think.(明显的、公然的、有意的)

Maneuver:a cleverly planned action that is intended to get an advantage. (以赢得某种优势而精心谋划的行动)

以不正当或有违公平的手段达成自己的目的,而且通常情况下会损害他人的声誉及利益。 以下是关于“Maneuver”的情景举例:

比如:暗地里巴结贿络领导,将本该属于大家的利益或机会独缆到自己的名下。暗地里、趋人不备给人挖坑或制造事端,在职场或仕途上阻碍竞争对手的发展。

再比如:明明自己有了男朋友,当发现闺蜜的那个更出众,吃着碗里看着锅里的,一方面借助闺蜜的身份耍手腕吸引男方注意,另一方面暗地里给人穿小鞋、泼冷水败坏闺蜜在其男友心目中的形象。

这个词组翻译过来的意思是:明目张胆(公然)的耍心机/施诡计。上面的两个例子都是指背地里操纵局势,而明目张胆的耍心机:

 

E.G.1:The Chinese government was  furious with the blatant maneuver of Mike Pompeo and warned of action after he stated that Taiwan has not been a part of China.

E.G.2:Edies’ emphasis upon Bango barking against Susan as well as her unfortunate marriage is a pretty blatant maneuver aimed at discrediting the positions of her formidable opponent.
