Today, Mayor Rahm Emanuel made a statement, and here’s part of it:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: "You can talk about the weather, but the weather didn't pull the trigger. You can talk about jobs, and they count, but in parts of the city where there aren't jobs, people did not pull the trigger." https://t.co/O7smQpUa48 pic.twitter.com/IZvHFdu2dC

Perhaps that’s what it’s supposed to be, since there’s no logical liberal explanation for what’s happening in Chicago, considering its status as a leader in gun control laws.
didn't this guy run the White House for Obama? Wasn't this Obama's old district in Chicago where all the gun crime is happening? hasn't chicago been run by Democrats forever? what problem have democrats ever fixed? https://t.co/mI9OieiXiy

Maybe some enterprising reporter can get around asking Emanuel some of those questions in the future.
PEOPLE didn't pull the trigger? Ummmmm…… 🤔🤔 https://t.co/6fqrJBwvul

This is what 100 years of one party rule looks like. Violence, no jobs, and no future.

NARRATOR: Actually, people did, in fact, pull the trigger(s) or the gun(s) wouldn't have shot the bullets that killed all those other people. https://t.co/wAOdUNP1fm

And “too many criminals on the street” is something else coming from one of the country’s biggest cheerleaders for sanctuary cities.

… except when they did – or, when they traveled to other parts of the city to pull the trigger.

At least Emanuel didn’t blame the NRA for what happened in Chicago this weekend. At least, not yet.
