Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot looks like Beetlejuice on crack most days.
When a reporter gets her riled up, she gets even worse.
Point in hand, a reporter asked her to rescind her “call to arms” post regarding the leaked Supreme Court brief, and she just about lost her mind.
Take It Back
Lightfoot was holding a presser earlier this week to slap herself on the back over a casino being built in Chicago.
During the presser, a reporter challenged her on the casino and on her “violent” tweet.
He stated, “Mayor Lightfoot, you’re patting yourself on the back today for rushing through a casino that 80% of the people in the 42nd ward say they just don’t want.
“You’re saying that this is going to, if it’s ever built, that is, result in tourism, result in conventions, but the real reason why we don’t have the tourism or we don’t have conventions is because of violent crime.
“You issued a violent tweet ‘call to arms’ and since then, we’ve had multiple incidences of mob violence in downtown Chicago, we’ve had shootings, murders, mass shootings — you talk about Texas — mass shooting here in Chicago.”
As Lightfoot started to lose her cool, he asked, “You went to Texas to a gay and lesbian fundraiser, okay?
“I’ve talked to the taxpayers, the voters, the citizens of Chicago, mostly black and brown, they say that they resent that.
“Will you recall, rescind your violent tweet, to call to arms?”
This was the interaction…
I find it funny how she disproves him by proving him right.
When tourism is at 90 percent, you have a 10 percent fall off from numbers that were already dipping.
In terms of the Supreme Court ruling, Chicagoans would have no worries because abortion is readily available in that city and state.
So, sorry, Beetlejuice, I mean Mayor Lightfoot, but it is you that sounds stupider every time you open your mouth.
