CHI-TOWN MELTDOWN: Chicago Mayor Rips Trump’s Visit, Slams ‘Insulting, Ignorant Buffoonery’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.29.19

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ripped President Trump’s visit to her city this week; slamming the Commander-in-Chief’s “insulting, ignorant buffoonery” and urging him to return to “DC and face his fate.”

“It’s no surprise that @realDonaldTrump brought his insulting, ignorant buffoonery to Chicago. Luckily, in this city, we know the truth and we will not let anyone — no matter how high the office — denigrate who we are as a people or our status as a welcoming city. Rather than belittle Chicago’s communities with hateful and dishonest rhetoric, he needs to go back to D.C. and face his fate,” posted Lightfoot on Twitter.

“President Trump knows as much about policing as he does running a fair and transparent government. I stand by the Superintendent for living up to the values of this great city and its residents,” she added.

 

Trump fiercely criticized Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson as a “disgrace” during a speech to the International Association of Chiefs of Police earlier this week.

“Here’s a man that could not bother to show up for a meeting of police chiefs … in his hometown and with the president of the United States. And you know why? It’s because he’s not doing his job,” said the President.

BUSTED! Chicago Mayor Caught on Hot Mic Calling Police Union Boss ‘A Clown’ at Council Meeting

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.19

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot stunned a City Council meeting Wednesday; calling the Fraternal Order of Police boss a “clown” on a hot microphone.

“It’s no secret that Mayor Lightfoot does not get along with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP),” reports Fox News. “However, it was still surprising when, during the City Council meeting, she was caught on a microphone insulting the group’s second in command.”

“Oh, back again, this FOP clown,” said Lightfoot.

Lori Lightfoot weighed-in last weekend on her city’s unprecedented gang violence; blaming nearby Indiana for the flow of guns into the region.

“Previously we had a law enforcement first and only strategy and it wasn’t working. It’s not working when you talk about neighborhoods where the unemployment rate is 25% or higher. It’s not working when you think about the fact that in many communities, 90% or more of residents are depending on public assistance and where neighborhoods haven’t been invested in, where there’s no real legitimate economic activity,” said Lightfoot.

“The fact that you can cross the border, go into Indiana and purchase military-grade weapons at any number with no background check is a terrible thing, not only for a city but look at the devastation that gun violence is wreaking every single day in our community,” she added.

Lightfoot confirmed last week that her city will not comply with any future immigration raids; blocking ICE agents from accessing the police department’s vast databases.

“Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart,” said Lightfoot at a press conference Wednesday.

“The Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE. That means that they will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We’ve also cut off access from ICE to any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” she added.

Chicago’s escalating gun crisis took a turn for the worse over the weekend; with gang violence leaving 9 people dead and 39 wounded across the nation’s third-largest city.

“Another hot weekend ended with dozens of people rushed to the emergency room with gunshot wounds. Shootings left nine people dead and 39 wounded over the weekend,” reports CBS Chicago.

“Two men and a woman were wounded when a man walked up to them and started shooting near 130th and Evans, according to police. A 47-year-old man was in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, after he was shot in the chest. A 23-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were stabilized at Roseland Community Hospital, after both of them were shot in the arm,” adds the news channel.

A police union boss called-out Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Friday after a hot-microphone caught the liberal leader calling him a “clown” at a public city council meeting.

“Appearing on Fox and Friends, Patrick Murray, the vice president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) said Lightfoot and the FOP are not known to get along,” reports Fox News.

“I think she owes an apology to everyone that comes down to talk to the city council, all the citizens that live in Chicago and the police officers I represent,” said Murray.

“I’ve had several police officer friends murdered on the job, and I stand for those guys and the police officers that work today still on this job. That’s what I stand for,” he said.
