Disgraced and failed Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her cool during a press conference when she was asked a tough question about last night’s devastating riots in downtown Chicago.
Lightfoot and her team were asked if the reason last night’s riots were so bad is that police and city officials went “easy” on past rioters during the George Floyd uprising.
However, that didn’t go over well with the angry little mayor.
Instead of answering the question like a responsible elected official, Lightfoot got hot under the collar and silenced the reporter.
The look on her face said it all…”How dare you ask me a tough question, you peasant reporter…You work for ME.”
Lightfoot then told the reporter “Don’t bait us!”

It’s a totally legit (and good) question that deserves an answer.

If Democrats think not answering hard questions about the disarray, chaos, and violence in their cities will somehow save them from responsibility, they have another thing coming. The mainstream media can only protect these failed leaders so much.
Local news is still pushing back hard on these inept officials, and the citizens of Chicago and other Dem-run hell-holes know exactly what’s going on and who is responsible for this mess.
Lori Lightfoot has tried to run the city of Chicago on the national stage, spending most of her time picking Twitter fights with Trump and his administration.

I don’t need leadership lessons from Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, while Lori is trying to get “Twitter popular,” crime is soaring, and the “bad guys” are running the show in the Windy City.
Mayor Lightfoot is more interested in gaining national attention and props from the #Resist crowd by battling Trump than she is about focusing on the massive hopelessness and chaos in her city…and it shows.
