Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is having a heckuva week. First she made a laughable claim about crime in Chicago, which earned some criticism. Speaking of criticism, Lightfoot has said that only about one percent of the criticism she receives is perhaps based in reality — the other 99 percent is centered around racism and/or sexism:

“Obviously we need to be focused on uniting people as much as we can.” LOL. Riiiight.
About 99 percent say she's out of touch with the people of her city.

Nothing to do with the dozens of Blacks who are murdered every week in your city? https://t.co/qsomiQVFWt

This is just how incompetent people behave. They don’t do the job and when people notice, they blame other people, call them racist, etc…. A complete joke. Terrible for the people of that city. https://t.co/VOsMPLIrfM

How did this idiocy become so pervasive and how do we even begin to course correct? https://t.co/MMqCUjWLTt
