‘Is This a Saturday Night Skit?’ – Chicago Mayor Ridiculed for Wishing a ‘Joyous Kwanzaa’ While Ignoring Crime in the City

Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago seems to forget about the massive crime rates in her city while wishing Chicago a Joyous Kwanza[a].

The Daily Mail reported:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was slammed on Twitter after she and her wife, Amy Eshleman, posted a video wishing a ‘joyous Kwanzaa’ to all who celebrate.

The backlash comes as Lightfoot is accused of ignoring the city’s surge in violent crimes, including a 25-year high murder rate, with 767 homicides in the city so far this year.

Last week, she begged Attorney General Merrick Garland to send ATF agents to the city for six months to help get illegal guns off the street after she slashed the police budget by $80 million in 2020. Lightfoot later scaled back the slashing of the budget and cut 3.3% – or $59 million.

Here is Lightfoot’s message:

The comments to Lightfoot’s tweet were as expected.

This is better than SNL.

Let’s all focus on Kwanzaa.

When your mayor is focusing on Kwanzaa instead of rising crime, you may want to elect a new mayor.
