How to use winking in a sentence?

  1. Elizabeth Warren:

    It comes in all sorts of flavors : racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia. It comes in all sorts of forms : nasty personal attacks. Trolling on Twitter. Winking at white supremacists. It all adds up to the same thing : the politics of division.

  2. Andy Duncan:

They're winking at us. Some eccentrics, moreover, are just visionaries ahead of their time, like the early advocates of such eccentric notions as animal welfare.
