I'm Afraid Chicago's New Mayor Is Brain Dead

CHICAGO — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is enjoying a late summer vacation with her family in Maine. Normally that wouldn’t be newsworthy, except for the fact the mayor previously ordered police brass to cancel summer travel plans, and blasted the department’s No. 2 in command for failing to do so.

In June, Mayor Lightfoot called it “incredibly disappointing” when she learned Chicago Police First Deputy Supt. Anthony Riccio had failed to follow her directive to command staff to cancel travel plans and remain in Chicago to combat a surge in summer violence.

Lightfoot’s weeklong vacation comes as violence — often fueled by warm weather and school vacations — continues to plague the city.

It doesn’t get dumber then fighting with the CPD when you’re the Mayor of Chicago. I mean scout’s honor, gun to my head, you have to be a total fucking MORON to want that smoke. I said this a couple weeks back when Lori was mic’d up while bad mouthing union leadership

Be dumber you can’t. I mean just take a hard look at Lori’s quote on the CPD vacations in June:

“The exempts have to set the example. And the example of doing something the mayor has directed them not to do is highly problematic,” Lightfoot said in June.

“They have to set an example” = AGREED

No one will say otherwise.

So what’s the problem?

One more time:

the example of doing something the mayor has directed them not to do


I don’t want to say mean things but for the life of me Lori Lightfoot looks like the dumbest asshole on planet earth right now. Trashing CPD leadership then IN THE SAME SEASON taking a week in Maine with family to get your thoughts together. Just an unbelievable crock of shit.

“People tell me all the time to ‘oh you’re so busy and you should take time off…

… Michael Scott anyone?

A mayoral spokesperson said Lightfoot remains in constant communication with police brass even while on vacation

“While the mayor is away, she is in communication with CPD multiple times a day… and is prepared to return to Chicago at a moment’s notice should she need to.”

Should she need to lead by example? Should she need to not look like an asshole? Should she need the confidence of the CPD behind her? Should she need public support trying to run the most morally/politically corrupt local government in western democracy?

I don’t know but you probably aren’t getting those fucking answers in Maine either.
