Who Won the Week? 10/25/2020

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.

For this week’s Who Won the Week, I’m going with the mute button.The first presidential debate, between incumbent President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden, was a chaotic spectacle marked by frequent interruptions and rude behavior by Trump. For the second presidential debate this past Thursday night the Commission on Presidential Debates implemented a mute button so that each candidate could speak uninterrupted.

As a result, along with a skillful job of moderating by NBC News’ Kristen Welker, this last debate was far less contentious than the first one. Trump was more constrained and calmer, which actually impressed some of the pundits, who said he came across “more presidential.” Give me a break. How low is the bar when a crazy person, who happens to be POTUS, manages to be more measured and less disruptive and insane than usual?

And yet, as he always does, the more restraint and measured Trump did not change his habit of filling everything he said with falsehoods and lies.

So, the mute bottom is this weeks winner. And with the election just nine days away, hopefully America will engage the national mute button on Donald Trump.

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?

      Over the weekend, Kamala was speaking and had a bee flying around her. She was calm. At some point, she pointed out that it wasn’t a fly. Then she laughed a heartfelt female laugh. 👏🏻

    I was watching Trump’s face while Biden was speaking and his expressions were not presidential at all! He reminded me of a little kid who’s been put in time out and no one will listen to him!

      I know. I wish the election was this Tuesday instead of a week from Tuesday just to put it all behind us.

    Whatever he gave up with that mute button, he took it back in the Leslie Stahl Interview for 60 minutes. What a chicken shit walking out on her! He just cannot handle a strong female journalist. It’s really quite pathetic for the “leader” of the western world 😧
