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.
This week, Fandango chose Greenland as this week’s winner. I absolutely agree with him, with the exception that I would greet the win to both Greenland aaaaaand??? Denmark!!
If you have been living in a cave the last couple of days, you might not know that Donald Trump has set his eyes on no less than Greenland. Yes, the whole country. My guess is that some of his minions have heard of our discussions about how difficult it was to get Greenland’s flag here, in the bloggosphere.
And since the man can’t just settle for what makes us, Joe Blows, happy, he probably thought ”Hey, instead of just forcing someone to visit me online, why don’t I buy the whole piece of land??” Typical!
So he turned to his favorite mean of communication and announced he wanted to buy Greenland on Twitter. To which, Greenland replied ”Uhhh no we don’t think so! Denmark hasn’t planted any ”On sale” sign around here!” (not literally, but close enough)
Because Greenland belongs to Denmark. (Why can’t I belong to Denmark??…. Ugh!) and Mette Frederiksen (DK’s prime minister) also declared that she didn’t intend on letting Greenland go, and that the idea was absurd.
How rude, uh? (Way to go, Denmark!!)
So Trump went about, telling the medias how Mrs Frederiksen had been ”nasty” and ”not nice” to the US, and how America had done so much for Denmark in the past, and blah blah blah…
Mette indicated that there would be no talking about this Greenland deal, when Trump would visit Copenhagen next week. That was too much to take, obviously. So he went to the oval office, threw a tantrum, rolling on the floor, beating his fists on the ground, and whining how he wasn’t friends with Denmark anymore (ok, I imagined this part, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we learnt he actually did it!) and postponed his trip for later on!
Now… You should know by now that I strongly believe that when Denmark invites you over, you do a happy dance, and book your flight right away. So if Trump knows Denmark as well as he claims he does, this is just yet another display of his poor judgement.
Anyhow, Denmark (and Greenland) have balls, and they really made my week when they stood in Trump’s way and gave him a big ”Nay!”
I’m proud of you Denmark! Stand your ground, literally! LOL
