於股掌之中- 每日一辭(英)

於股掌之中

Twist around one's finger / Turn around one’s finger / Wind around one’s finger / Wrap around one’s finger

= to exert complete control over someone.

 

Examples:

However incompetent the president is and how many empty promises he made, he is still able to twist his people around his finger. Can you say that he is stupid? No. He is actually pretty good at manipulating others.

 

A beautiful girl like Emily can easily turn any man around her finger and have them carry out anything she asks.

 

He really adores you. You’ve got him wrapped around your finger.

 

Her innocent look has got every man wound around her finger.
