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.
As counterintuitive as it might seem, my Who Won the Week designee this week is Rudy Giuliani.Why would I declare Rudy Giuliani, who has transformed himself from America’s Mayor to America’s buffoon, this week’s winner? Quite simply because he epitomizes the hubris of Donald Trump as Trump intensifies his attempts to seize an election victory from the jaws of defeat.
Giuliani is Trump’s $20,000-a-day lawyer. But Rudy has lost every case he’s brought to challenge the outcome of an election that Joe Biden has resoundingly won. Giuliani’s performances, both before the court and before the press, have been an embarrassment to both himself and to Donald Trump, assuming that Trump even knows how to feel embarrassed. Even Fox News Trump apologist Geraldo Rivera said, “What I saw with Rudy Giuliani, who I’ve known for decades, was bizarre, was unfocused.”
So as Trump continues his efforts to undermine Americans’ faith in the democratic process in what can only be described as an American coup, Rudy Giuliani, with his recently applied dark hair dye running down his sweaty cheeks, held another insane, rambling, 90-minute news conference that further illustrated the absurdity of Trump’s quest to destroy America.
I take some measure of relief in the fact that Trump’s and Giuliani’s clown-car side show won’t work and that, on January 20, 2021, Joe Biden will be America’s president. Thank you, Rudy Giuliani, for making that obvious.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
In addition to my Who Won the Week post, I have incorporated these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (hubris), Your Daily Word Prompt (seize), and The Daily Spur (relief).
