This is what happens when someone loses their mind…
Recently, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot got in a verbal altercation with South Side Alderman Raymond Lopez while they were discussing how to respond to the riots going on in the state.
In a recorded call between Lightfoot and Lopez, Lopez criticized how the mayor has been dealing with everything as well as accusing her for ignoring his district. He said during the call, “When downtown is in lockdown, our neighborhoods are next. We’re seeing this destruction … We have seen where, in other cities, this has gone on for days; and we need to come up with a better plan for days, at least for the next five days, to try and stabilize our communities.”
Lopez then included that there were “gang-bangers with AK-47s walking around right now, just waiting to settle some scores.”
Lightfoot did not answer, so Lopez added, “It’s not something you ignore. This is a question that I have.”
This is when Lightfoot snapped and started to attack Lopez. She said, “I think you’re 100% full of shit, is what I think.” Lopez retaliated, so Lightfoot shouted, “If you think we’re not ready, and we stood by and let the neighborhoods go up, there’s nothing intelligent that I could say to you. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I understand you want to preen.”
Looks like the government in Chicago might need a major overhaul. Read the rest of the story here.
