Who Won The Week? 8/18/19

10CC3057-4EEA-4C80-B8C1-700C0FC6C906Last week I introduced the Who Won the Week prompt. It was met with limited success. But sometimes these things take a while to catch on, so I thought I’d give it another shot.

The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who you think won the 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.

My selection for this week is the country of Greenland. I admit that I rarely think about Greenland, and it’s not because nobody from Greenland has ever visited my blog. However, Greenland has been in the news recently because of concerns for its rapidly melting glaciers due to climate change.

But this week we found out that Donald Trump has his eyes on Greenland. He wants to grab it by its resources and he believes that when you’re President, you can do that. Yes, the orange moron wants to buy Greenland.

Greenland, a Danish territory, has strategic value in terms of military activity and natural resources. So, deal maker Trump has decided he wants to make America great again by buying it.

But Greenland resoundingly rebuffed Trump’s landmass grab-ass desires and said no way.30C76BCF-C713-4463-9CCF-B89E634984EFYou go, Greenland. Tell Donald Trump to go pound sand. You get my vote for Who Won the Week.

So tell us. Who do you think won the week?

Who Won The Week?

10CC3057-4EEA-4C80-B8C1-700C0FC6C906I am unabashedly stealing the Who Won the Week feature that Joy Reid, host of “AM Joy” weekend mornings on MSNBC. On her Sunday morning show, Joy asks each of her three panel members to tell her who they think “won the week.” Since her show is politically oriented, most (but not all) of the people who are named are involved in politics.

But for purposes of my Who Won the Week prompt, your selection of who you think won the week can be anyone — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, or anyone. It can also be organizations.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (after this first one, anyway). 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.

I’m not going to post my thoughts on who I think won the week because I don’t want to influence anyone else’s choices. I may post my choice later in the week.

So tell us. Who do you think won the week?
