Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames Donald Trump for her crime wave

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who won’t allow the police to do their job, is blaming Donald Trump for her crimewave.

She falsely claimed Donald Trump ignored them for four years, despite the fact that he tried to provide help and was repulsed.

“It is incredibly gratifying to have a partner in the White House who understands the appropriate and unique role that the federal government has to play in public safety at the local level; for four years we were ignored, over and over again,” Lightfoot said about Chicago’s crime surge during her Friday evening briefing, which came after meeting with the Chicago City Council that was spurred by Newsmax questioning one week ago. “I started raising these issues from the moment I became mayor. We needed more help from our federal partners.”

She said bail is ‘debtor’s prison’ although she’s letting every criminal out.

Lightfoot is still pretending the crime wave is improving. Statistics counter that claim.

Crime data compiled by the Chicago Tribune shows that more people have been shot this year in the Windy City so far than at the same point in 2020.

There have been 1,587 people shot in Chicago in 2021 so far, almost 200 more than at the same point last year, according to data updated through June 14, according to the Tribune.

Data compiled by the Chicago Sun-Times also appears to show an upswing in violent crime. The paper reported last week that there have been at least 317 homicides in Chicago in 2021, an increase from 302 this time last year.

For the whole of 2020, there were 775 homicides, which was up more than 50% from 506 murders in the previous year.

Lightfoot praised President Joe Biden and the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms for assisting on “crime gun” seizures in the city, noting a dangerous July 4 weekend to come.

Chicago notoriously allows the release of people guilty of gun crimes.

In any case, it’s gang violence, not gun violence. She won’t do a thing about the gangs.

How can they just lie like that, do people really believe that the problems in Chiraq or any other Democrap run city are all Trump’s fault? do you think all their brainwashed minions actually belie this crap? It is insane even to suggest this let alone state it publicly.

The mayor is having a personal crisis, her desperation is evident. Blaming Trump proves that, not only is Trump not at fault, she is lying. She is a poor person elected by poor voters.

Her base of irrational, leftist city voters want to believe her. But there is no coherent thought there.

Here is the realization that she and her junk followers are in denial about. The city has a black, female, leftist, homosexual mayor, and the city has decayed in every way. The promises of utopia were not realized. The “philosophy”, and the mayor, are complete failures.

Democrats have continually shown their incompetence for over 100 years. Are Americans that stupid or have Democrats been stealing Elections for that long? If Government actually took care of problems then why would we need Big Government? Both Parties are the Problem and until the 16th and 17th Amendments are repealed we are going to have this problem. The Federal Government simply has too much power. My question is where is the State, they are the ones with the authority to deal with the problems in Chicago, but Gov. Pritzker is a Democrat too!

As I recall, Trump offered to go into some of these cities and help clean up the crime problems. He was told to stay out, they don’t need his help. But somehow now it’s Trumps fault.

President Trump offered to send federal help to assist Chicago with their violent crime situation in both 2017 and 2120. Lightfoot rejected his offer twice.

It’s rough living in MAGA country which has been owned by the GOP (Jobber/Uniparty) since the 1920’s.
No comrade is safe in the flagship Chiquitastan utopia of Chiraq.
Maybe those radicalized American flag waving pick up truck git-r-dun Ricky Bobby toothless hill scoggins are on the march in Chicagostan?

O/T-Look at MD at the control center on a holiday! We just might have a chance with that kind of determination. I like the way you handle your rig.
Very little sleep and there was a bizarre incident at the hood entrance about 2AM with three males of mixed races fist fighting in a Fiat then they stopped got out and fought for a minute, I was watching from behind a tree and yelled out go do that somewhere else and those freshly installed street lamps have cameras.
The Fiat driver almost ran over the other two and you could tell that the brain IQ enhancing alcohol was involved.
