The Mayor of Chicago, Lori
Lightheaded er Lightfoot who ripped the president over mass shootings, then developed a severe case of reality bites when Ivanka Trump mentioned that Chicago is kind of a mecca for senseless murders. Man the truth sucks!
First Lightfoot climbed aboard her own personal fake moral outrage and launched nasty, and patently false accusations at President Trump
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot reacted to the weekend’s mass shootings in Texas and Ohio by calling for greater national gun control efforts including universal background checks while asking President Donald Trump to set “a better, clearer moral tone.”
“What he’s been doing is blowing every racist, xenophobic dog whistle and when you do that, when you blow that kind of dog whistle, animals come out,” Lightfoot said Monday, referring indirectly to Trump’s incendiary tweets and campaign speeches that have included calling Mexican immigrants “rapists.”
Trump should use “his weight in Congress to move forward on common sense gun reform,” Lightfoot said.
Oh no, not dog whistles, please not the dog whistles again! Maybe the mayor should go off script and look at how those “common sense gun reforms” are working in Chicago? Where the collective gun toll is staggering, which Ivanka Trump dared to mention
But this week, Lightfoot engaged in a public battle of words with the president’s powerful daughter, who in a series of tweets on Tuesday drew attention to the city’s gun violence and provoked an angry response from Chicago’s mayor.
Early Tuesday, Ivanka Trump drew renewed national attention to Chicago’s problems with gun violence by writing, “As we grieve over the evil mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, let us not overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year.”
“With 7 dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City — and little national outrage or media coverage — we mustn’t become numb to the violence faced by inner city communities every day,” she tweeted.
Mayor Dog Whistle was, of course, outraged that someone would actually think of the inner city victims of violence
A livid Lightfoot said Trump got key facts wrong in her online comments and falsely implied that all the injuries happened in one incident. If Ivanka Trump cared, Lightfoot said, she should have reached out to city officials.
“It wasn’t a playground, it was a park. It wasn’t seven dead. It wasn’t 52 wounded in one incident, which is what this suggests. It’s misleading,” Lightfoot said. “It’s important when we’re talking about people’s lives to actually get the facts correct, which one can easily do if you actually cared about getting it right.”
