It’s time for another Who Won the Week prompt. The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
“Today you’re going hear from Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the President of the United States, but someone that the White House Coronavirus Task Force directed to work with EMA on supply chain issues,” explained Vice President Mike Pence earlier this week. “And in recent weeks, he has been leading a working group, in conjunction with FEMA, that literally has identified millions of medical supplies around the nation and around the world. And we’re grateful for his efforts and his leadership.”
So who else would I pick as my Who Won the Week recipient besides Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner?Once again, Jared Kushner is our president’s go-to person, but that’s to be expected, given Kushner’s astounding successes in his previous assignments of bringing peace to the Middle East, ending the global opioid epidemic, and turning our bloated government bureaucracy into a lean, mean fighting machine.
Kushner is an interesting choice for this critical role of managing the medical supply chain in the fight against COVID-19. His early involvement with the virus was in advising his father-in-law that the media’s coverage exaggerated the threat, and he urged Trump to announce, falsely, that Google was about to launch a website that would link Americans with coronavirus testing kit from a health insurance company co-founded by Kushner’s brother.
But fear not, my friends. Jared is on the case and, as he said, “I’m doing my own projections, and I’ve gotten a lot smarter about this.” His conclusion, after getting himself up to speed, is that “New York doesn’t need all the ventilators.”
How lucky we are that this 39-year-old wonder boy married Donald Trump’s daughter. Otherwise, his talents might have remained undiscovered.
And now it’s your turn, folks. Who (or what) do you think won the week?
