Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's dismal tenure has been marked by a dramatic rise in violence, the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax, and full-frontal assaults against churches under the guise of public health and yet she is never held accountable by media.
As another of the crop of Dem politicians who got her job largely because of identity - she is both black and gay - Lightfoot continues to show that she is unqualified and unfit and on Thursday, she showed up at a news conference wearing a bizarre Halloween get-up.
Mayor Lightfoot's presser was to announce that unlike Easter Sunday worship services, that she would not be canceling Halloween, and the masked "Rona Destroyer" wore a cape and passed out trick or treat candy.
Trick-or-treating will be allowed in Chicago this Halloween, with some restrictions, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Thursday.
Those going door-to-door cannot be in groups larger than six, must "keep it moving" and social distance.
Lightfoot also outlined a new city event -- Halloweek.
Lightfoot's Halloween announcement comes the same day COVID-19 restrictions are easing for Chicago businesses.
Classes at gyms can now include more people, and personal services that require a mask being removed, like shaves and facials, are now allowed.
The alcohol curfew for bars and restaurants is pushed back to 1 a.m. Bars that don't serve food will be able to seat people indoors at 25% capacity, and those that do serve food can open at 40% capacity, with a maximum of 50 people per space.
Illinois released its Halloween guidelines Wednesday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Anyone participating in trick-or-treating should maintain social distance and wear proper face coverings; consider leaving individual candies spaced apart outside; trick-or-treat only with household members and wash hands before eating candy, the state said.
Lightfoot who is a dead ringer for Beetlejuice on any given day couldn’t possibly look any more ridiculous – but she did.
The news that the Windy City would be allowing Halloween should be greeted with mixed feelings, especially since the carnage in an already violent hellhole hit record levels.
Breitbart reports, “Over 3,100 Shooting Victims in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago this Year”:
Over 3,100 people have been shot in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago thus far in 2020.
The Chicago Tribune reports the exact number of shooting victims at 3,132, and that includes the fatally wounded as well as those who survived.
The Tribune reports the number of homicides January 1, 2020, through September 28, 2020, at 576, CNN reported fewer than 500 for all of 2019.
Breitbart News reported at least 49 people were shot over the past weekend alone, at least seven fatally. Nearly 40 were shot, including six fatally, the weekend prior, and at least 50 were shot, 11 fatally, the weekend before that.
One would think that Mayor Lightfoot would have more urgent priorities than putting on the "Rona Destroyer" garb and prancing around for an adoring media but the violence in her city where citizens are under attack as if they lived in a third-world country doesn't merit her full attention.
It is mind-boggling how this person could have ever gotten the job as the mayor of one of America's largest cities but if it wasn't for low standards, Democrats would have no standards at all.
Democrats and especially the vaunted class of 2018 are incompetent authoritarian clowns and the coronavirus is the best thing that ever happened to them.
