Leaked Email from Chicago Mayor Lightfoot to Her Staff Looks Like It Was Written by a Petulant Teenager

Western Journal

Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot took a page from Jack Nicholson’s deranged character from the horror film “The Shining” by repetitively writing the same sentences in an unhinged email that spotlights what a tyrant she is behind the scenes.

The disturbing email was obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by Chicago Tribune reporter Gregory Pratt, who shared it on Twitter.

In the chilling six-paragraph Jan. 28 email, a furious Lightfoot berated her staff about needing unstructured time to herself during the workday — which she called “office time.”

She pouted that “since my prior requests are routinely ignored, I am resorting to this.”

Then, like a 2-year-old throwing a tantrum, the Democrat wrote the same sentence 16 times in a row.

“I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day! I need office time every day!” Lightfoot said.

In the third paragraph, the mayor cried 10 times in a row: “Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday! Not just once a week or some days, everyday!”

In the fourth paragraph, she howled seven consecutive times: “Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time. Breaks or transition times between meetings are not office time.”

In the fifth paragraph, the race-baiting Lightfoot ranted five times in a row: “If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally cancelling things every day. If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally cancelling things every day. If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally cancelling things every day. If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally cancelling things every day. If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally cancelling things every day.”



And in the sixth and final paragraph of her crazed meltdown, the mayor wrote 13 times in a row: “Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?! Have I made myself clear, finally?!”

At a news conference Monday, the Democrat justified her rudeness by claiming the email was written “after a lot of conversation and borne of frustration,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

In other words, Lightfoot suggested that her underlings deserved her verbal abuse. She added that she and her staff had resolved the issue that led to her toxic outburst.

“We got beyond that and solved the challenges that were at the heart of that email which was written five-plus months ago so I think we’re in a better place,” she said.

During the past few months, at least a dozen of the mayor’s employees have resigned or said they plan to quit amid mounting speculation that she’s difficult to work with.

Democratic Chicago Alderman Walter Burnett Jr. — who has been in office for 26 years — said this level of mayoral staff turnover is unprecedented.

“It is somewhat unusual. I haven’t seen it like this,” he told the Tribune.

It’s puzzling that Lightfoot needs more time to herself during the workday since it doesn’t appear she has done much to help her city, which has devolved into a crime-infested cesspool where weekly murder sprees are an accepted part of life.

But then again, condoning — and even tacitly encouraging — crime rampages is a hallmark of today’s Democratic Party.

Off-Duty Firefighter Jumped by Mob Who Tell Him It's 'Fight Night' Before Brutal Beating

Asking for a little old-fashioned respect can be the prelude to a beatdown in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City. The New York Post has released video of a Friday night incident in which a rabid mob of teenagers surrounded and then attacked an off-duty firefighter as he walked his dog near his home in the borough of Queens. Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, who founded the civic protection group the Guardian Angels in 1979, posted the video to Twitter. Warning: The following video contains graphic images and language that some readers will find disturbing. Last night in Middle Village a mob of kids attacked a man who asked them to stop blasting fireworks. #NYPD from the 104th precinct were there but did nothing. The community reached out to #NYC Mayoral candidate #CurtisSliwa & the #GuardianAngels to find these vicious teens pic.twitter.com/uVJkBUJ0L1 — Curtis Sliwa for NYC Mayor (@CurtisSliwa) July 24, 2021 The 44-year-old victim, whose name was not released by the Post, said he is among those who have objected to the deterioration of his community,  and taken the dangerous stand of telling teenagers to behave as if rules really mattered. Retribution for preaching civility arrived Friday night. “There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the firefighter told the Post in a Saturday interview. “One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s fight night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” the victim said. “They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said. With the dog barking…

Olympic Cyclist Celebrates Victory as She Crosses the Finish Line, Then Learns a Gold Medal Isn't Coming

Neither the gold medal winner nor the woman who celebrated when she thought she had won could quite believe the results of the women’s Olympic bicycle road race on Sunday. Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten put on a massive gold medal-worthy display of victory as she crossed the finish line. But there was one catch. Anna Keisenhofer of Austria had been so far ahead of the rest of the pack that two minutes before van Vleuten had celebrated her finish, Keisenhofer had already had won the race,  according to Cycling News. Van Vleuten waved her arms in triumph and embraced members of her team, only to learn the truth after someone knowing the facts poured cold water on the celebration.

I was wrong. I didn’t know,” she said. “This is an example (of what happens) if you ride an important race like this without communication. All World Tour races have communication, and now it’s the three of us standing here and wondering who has actually won,” van Vleuten said, referring to teammates Marianne Vos and Anna van der Breggen, according to CNN. In most races, cyclists are in radio communication with their teams, but that is not allowed in the Olympics. “I’m gutted about that, of course,” she said. Although the realization that she had not won a gold medal hurt, van Vleuten said winning a silver medal remained an achievement. “I’m really proud of the medal, because I did not have an Olympic medal. It’s also a silver medal with a shine on it, because I felt super good today,” said van Vleuten. “My goal was to be at my best-ever level here, and I think I nailed that. It’s…
