You could say Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is a trip, but in reality she’s just another good Democrat. She knows exactly what to say to keep the mainstream media on her side, which isn’t exactly difficult to do.

Lightfoot is now using Coronavirus lockdowns as a scapegoat for rising violence in the Windy City.

Chicago’s mayor, Lori Lightfoot, had an odd explanation for the gun violence gripping the city Sunday, suggesting that lax gun laws and coronavirus-related lockdowns were largely to blame for the spike in shootings, which has left at least four children dead and dozens of Chicago residents wounded.

“Lightfoot also suggested that the coronavirus shutdowns that kept people inside for months played a role in creating a ‘perfect storm’ while also pointing out the death of George Floyd as an event that sparked anger in the community,” the Examiner reported.

That “perfect storm” is responsible for a nearly record-breaking streak of violence in the city. As of late June, “329 people have been killed in Chicago, an increase of about 34% from the 246 homicides during the same period last year, according to police. Shootings in that period rose by about 42%, from 978 in 2019 to 1,384 in 2020,” NBC Chicago reports. Crime, overall, is down by 9%.

From The Blaze:

Chicago’s far-left Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot was asked earlier this week for her reaction to residents “taking matters into their own hands” in order to “protect their communities” amid the rioting over George Floyd’s death.

Lightfoot said, “Obviously we’re aware of the fact that Illinois is a concealed carry state, and that many people have weapons at their disposal in their homes and their businesses. Do not take matters into your own hands. Call the police.

She added, “Do not pick up arms and try to be the police. If there’s a problem, call 911. We will respond. I urge people to show strength and do not take matters into your own hands.

Obama: My Admin Didn’t Pursue Reparations Due to the ‘Politics of White Resistance’

Ummm, okay then.

No black person with any self-respect would ask for reparations from taxpayers who had nothing to do with slavery. That being said, a lot of black people would love reparations – despite living in a country where they can become a multi-millionaire if they work hard enough. From The Daily Wire: Former President Barack Obama told his podcast co-host, Bruce Springsteen, that he would have liked to pursue reparations for slavery as part of his presidential agenda, but that the “politics of white resistance” made the issue a “non-starter.” Obama and Springsteen recently launched a podcast together where the pair discuss how to pursue “unity” among Americans and forge friendships across party, class, and racial lines. The podcast is billed as two friends from polar opposite backgrounds coming together — Springsteen from a working-class New Jersey upbringing and Obama from a childhood spent in Hawaii and later, in Chicago — but both Springsteen and Obama are now wealthy Democrats. Obama blabbered, “And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor. And the backlash against affirmative action. All that made the prospect of actually proposing any kind of coherent, meaningful reparations program struck me as, politically, not only a nonstarter but potentially counterproductive.” From Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama demonized tens of millions of Americans on Saturday after news organizations declared Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election—despite the fact that ballots are still being counted and the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states—claiming without evidence that those who voted for President Donald Trump voted to support “lies, hate, chaos, and division.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141018480578567 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141020510625797 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141021647269888 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141022570131457 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141023979270145 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141025808134144 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141665821061122 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141667414904833 https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1325141669021425664

‘He Kissed Me On the Lips’ — New Details of Cuomo’s Sexual Harassment Charges Emerge

Must be nice having the MSM behind you!!

He is most likely responsible for the deaths of countless Americans in his state, due to poor COVID-19 policies. He’s also facing allegations of sexual harassment. If this guy was a Republican, he would’ve been forced to resign long ago. Luckily for Andrew Cuomo, the MSM is on his side. Here’s the scoop, via New York Post: A former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday provided new details to back up her claims of sexual harassment — including an allegation that New York’s top elected official kissed her “on the lips” without warning inside his Manhattan office. Lindsey Boylan — now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president — made the stunning allegation in an essay posted on the Medium website. Boylan said the incident took place after her 2018 promotion to be Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development and special advisor to the governor — a job she initially turned down “because I didn’t want to be near him.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1361406820712140802?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406820712140802%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1361406777036845062?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361406777036845062%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/phillyrich1/status/1361409907170435076?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409907170435076%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F MORE: https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361411492218867712 https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361409204758736907?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361409204758736907%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F https://twitter.com/JaniceDean/status/1361412427137634307?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1361412427137634307%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fgov-cuomo-now-blaming-experts-staff-for-bringing-covid-into-nursing-homes%2F
