Where to start with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. She tweeted that she doesn’t need “leadership lessons” from President Trump after he tried to score “cheap political points” by bringing up the soaring violent crime rates in Chicago in a Fox News town hall, but it really seems like she does. She’s tried to blame the COVID-19 pandemic for the 87 or so shootings over the Fourth of July weekend. Just last week she blamed the lack of “federal strategy” on guns for city’s rising murder rate.
Now the mayor is telling White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to watch her mouth after calling Lightfoot a “derelict mayor.”

It's the truth, Karen.

Where’s the lie?

Sounds like a threat. What a great example you are to your city. You’re only out-sucked by DeBlasio for worst Mayor.

Worst mayor ever…Lori Lightfoot or Bill de Blasio?

You suck at your job.

Her statement was pretty clean especially when you compare it to the hateful rhetoric, that would make a sailor blush, that comes out of YOUR mouth

You've enhanced the murder rate, Morticia.

Hey Karen, watch your crime infested city. Oh wait. That’s all you do. Watch. Sit.

Since the mayor clearly can’t get the shootings and murders under control, she should ask for help. The lives of those murdered do matter.

Or else what? You’ll send the Census Cowboy after her? Do your job.
— Jessica Fletcher (@heckyessica) July 16, 2020
The Census Cowboy is a real thing.
What a terrible mayor.

Mayor @chicagosmayor your city is literally a dumpster ?!! If you were doing something about it people would not have to speak the truth about you and your city! It’s ok to ask for help.

Maybe if you spent more time focusing on the gun violence that plagues your city & less time playing Mayor Mask Monitor then maybe Chicago wouldn't be in such a mess. Then again, blaming others for the problems that plague Chicago is what Chicago mayors have always done. #Twill

Karen is absolutely correct. You've done a horrific job at trying to protect your residents.

Hey Lori, watch your body count!

Lightfoot is running a close second next to de Blasio for most incompetent mayor of a major city. Come on Lori, I’m pulling I’m for you!

What part of what she said isn't true?
— Deplorable Petr (@PragueArtist) July 16, 2020
Lightfoot is a disgrace & a complete failure. What’s happening in the once great city & my former hometown of Chicago is a tragedy and saddens me.

Derelict, is being too kind

When people are saying you’re worse than Bill de Blasio, you’ve got a problem.
Suck it, peasants! Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot channels Bill de Blasio and defies stay-at-home order because she 'needed to have a haircut' https://t.co/RQe1vCShCa
