              Chinese slangs

              A 保護傘
              someone or some power that can provide special protection like an umbrella.

              【發音】bǎo hù sǎn

              【釋義】比喻可以起庇護作用的力量或人物(多含貶義)。
              ??????????? This phrase, in a sarcastic way, compares someone or some power to an umbrella that can protect certain people or organizations.

              【例1】這和全球許多地方濫用權力的情況是個強烈的對比。在這些地方,身居高位者不為人民謀福利,卻利用保護傘和職權中飽私囊。
              ?????????? This is in sharp contrast with the abuse of powers widespread in many parts of the world, where protective umbrellas enabled some public figures to exploit their positions for personal gains, instead of working for the common good of the people under their care.

              【例2】一些企業在地方主義的保護傘下“逍遙法外”。
              ?????????? Some enterprises were under local protectionism.
