How to use gimmick in a sentence?

  1. Paige Spiranac:

    I was harassed, my family was harassed. I was receiving death threats, people were invading my privacy, I was being blackmailed. This was going on while I was trying to play, when it comes to the golf industry, I know that people see me as a gimmick. I don’t think I am. If I was a guy and I had the same social following, I don’t think people would call it a gimmick. They’d say it was great. People seem to think I got where I am because of the clothes that I wear. That’s unfair to me and unfair to all of my accomplishments. I probably do more community service than any other professional golfer.

  2. Steven Rosenthal:

    There will be a lot of rough edges, which advisers and taxpayers will exploit, the COGS loophole for BEAT is a straightforward gimmick, but I am unsure how or whether the IRS will stop it.

  3. Bruce Mehlman:

    Some CEOs despise Washington, think it's all a gimmick, and don't see any return on the invested effort.
