Who Won The Week? 09/06/2020

10CC3057-4EEA-4C80-B8C1-700C0FC6C906It’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.

This week I’m declaring the Democratic nominee Joe Biden as the individual who won the week. It’s not because of what Joe Biden did, though. He won the week because of what Donald Trump did this past week.

So what did Trump do this week to make Joe Biden the winner? First of all, he encouraged his supporters, as I wrote here, to commit voter fraud by voting for him twice in November’s presidential election, once by mail and once in person. Not only is it illegal to vote twice, it’s a felony to encourage others to do so.

Further, with close to 6.5 million COVID-19 cases and more than 192,000 deaths in the U.S., Trump is essentially throwing in the towel in his administrstion’s approach to combating the pandemic. His latest strategy entails allowing the coronavirus to spread through most of the population in order to quickly build resistance to the virus, something to generate what is called “herd immunity.” But in order to achieve herd immunity, between 50% to 67% of the population would need to be infected. With a population of more than 330 million, that would mean at least 115 million cases and, with a fatality rate of just 1%, more than million deaths. But that seems to be just fine with Trump.

And finally, and probably most damaging to Trump, was an article in the Atlantic this week.It alleges that Trump believes those who serve in the military, especially those who died or were wounded, are losers and suckers.

So Trump’s campaign for re-election seems to be imploding base upon Trump’s words and deeds. And all Joe Biden has to do is sit back and highlight that he is the only candidate for president who is not incompetent, self-serving, and insane.

Now it’s your turn. Who (or what) do you think won the week?

    I have to go with the journalists from the Atlantic who gave us a reminder of what we have in the whitehouse.

    I think you’re right, but it seems to be a big ask these days for a politician not to be incompetent.

    I think it’s fine to go with Joe Biden—but not only because trump is so terrible. Biden has made several fine speeches saying how he’ll lead us out of this morass—including specifics about safe school openings and child care centers.

      You’re right. He’s being very smart about how he’s responding to Trump.

    While I think that Trump has damaged himself, I also think his base doesn’t read real news and probably doesn’t even know what he says. We can NEVER just sit back and wait for it to work out.

    As for who won the week? Around here it was the weather. We got a little rain, a lot of sun, and finally some cooler and much much much less humidity. But it wasn’t one of my better weeks. All things considered, it was difficult.

    I am totally ready for a sane, competent president. I go into rapture when I hear the complete, cogent sentences come out of Joe Biden’s mouth.

    Trump works for Putin. The COVID-19 (and any other current) deaths are intended. And he (Trump) ain’t got no problem with that.

    Meanwhile, his disrespect and disregard extended to WWII vets and deaths of soldiers who fought to defeat the Nazis. Republicans have fallen.
