Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is under fire over the Lollapalooza music festival held in Chicago this weekend:

And she even attended the event as she imposes new restrictions on the rest of the city:

How do you do, fellow kids?
Mayor Lightfoot at Lollapalooza this weekend.
It's largest festival in the world this year, expected to attract 100,000 people/day.

And she’s mad that people were not wearing masks on the subway before they crowded themselves next to even more people at the concert:
Mayor Lightfoot’s stern warning after photos showed CTA trains packed with maskless people during Lollapalooza:
“I hope we don’t have to get to a point where we write tickets.. but if we have to… we absolutely will”

How on Earth did she think this was a good idea?
I really can’t wait until the next mayoral campaign, when all Lightfoot’s opponent(s) will have to do is keep pointing at Lolla pictures and making this face 🤨

“I’m over here quoting Fox News, that’s how hypocritical Lori Lightfoot looks right now”:
“Despite announcing plans to resume more pandemic restrictions in the city, the Democrat mayor continued to host Lollapalooza, which is one of the largest music festivals in the country”

She also said 90% of the people are vaccinated so she “feels very good about what we’ve done”:
Mayor Lori Lightfoot: 90 percent of the people at Lollapalooza are vaccinated. Since June, "millions of people" have attended outdoor events, citing Cubs/Sox/other festivals.
"I feel very good about what we've done. Obviously we'll know a little more in a week or 10 days."

About that. . .
Great job, Lollapalooza fans! More than 90% of you showed us your proof of vaccination today! Thanks go out to the 8% who brought their proof of negative COVID-19 tests and for the 600 of you who showed up without paperwork, we hope to see you tomorrow!

. . .they didn’t really check your vaccination status as this video clearly shows:
This is how Lori Lightfoot’s lollapalooza is checking Vaccination cards & our mayor is lying saying 90% are vaccinated. Expect her to shut the city down soon because COVID rates have increased after she allowed 400,000 people to party so she can make the revenue. #Ridiculousness pic.twitter.com/Wcq0xzWYqZ

So, basically, you flash a white piece of paper or a Xerox of someone else’s card to get it?
