INCITE TO VIOLENCE: Chicago Mayor Lightfoot To President Trump: ‘F-U’

Way to encourage restraint, Mayor Lightfoot. Lightfoot actually said that to the President of the United States during a televised press conference. At a time when cities across the country are being set ablaze. Not only is Mayor Lightfoot utterly despicable, but they don’t get any dumber. Lightfoot is giving Mayor de Blasio a run for his money: for the title of worst mayor in America.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot To Trump: ‘F-U’

By WBBM, May 29, 2020

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Friday lashed out at President Trump with an implied expletive after the president’s controversial comments about social unrest in Minneapolis.

“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U,” Lightfoot said at a media briefing to discuss reopening plans in her city.

The mayor was talking about the racially charged death of George Floyd, 47, a black man who died after being arrested by Minneapolis police. Video of a white officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck went viral; in it, Floyd said he couldn’t breathe.

Trump has expressed sympathy toward Floyd’s family. But in a censored tweet, he suggested protesters in Minneapolis could be shot if they are looting. Lightfoot said the president’s message was “profoundly dangerous” meant to “inflame racist urges.”

Lightfoot said demonstrations were expected in Chicago in the wake of Floyd’s death. She said protesters should take precautions because of the pandemic.

“Folks, please march, exercise your rights, but wear face coverings. Bring hand sanitizers,” she said. “Ensure distance between one another even as you’re marching. If you feel sick, please, stay home. And remember that you could also be COVID-positive and be asymptomatic.”

Illinois Gov. JB Pritkzer also weighed in Friday about Trump’s reponse to the upheaval in Minneapolis.

“From the very moment that I announced my decision to run for governor three-plus years ago, I said that this president was a racist, misogynist, a homophobe, a xenophobe. And I was right then and I’m right now,” he said.
