“Every time you have a press conference you say crime is down, the economy is booming,” the reporter, “Rob,” said before being interrupted by Lightfoot.
The reporter continued, “Across the street we had a police officer on duty, the victim of a hit and run, we have Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile, now referred to as the ‘mile of fear’ and the Water Tower Place has thrown the keys back to the lender, they say they don’t want to be in Chicago anymore.”
“Real Chicagoans are asking me, how could you possibly even consider running for re-election as mayor of the city of Chicago after all the harm you’ve caused?” the reporter said.
“Well, I disagree with you fundamentally and I don’t think I need to address and dignify your comments one second further,” Lightfoot responded.
Crime rates remain abysmal in Chicago under Lightfoot’s leadership.
The Gateway Pundit added:
Lori Lightfoot also crushed businesses by imposing a mask mandate and a vaccine passport system.
During the pandemic Lightfoot threatened to jail and fine people who violated her Covid rules while she secretly got her hair done.
Lightfoot defended her visit to the salon: “I’m the public face of this city and you know, I’m a person who [takes] personal hygiene very seriously and I felt like I needed to have a haircut. So I got a haircut.”
Reports from the Chicago Tribune indicate that Lightfoot already faces a myriad of challengers lining up to run against her the next mayoral election.
