Lori Lightfoot is one example of a person in an ultimate state of denial. Anf these 5 simple words might be the worst to hit her yet.
Despite the “crime surge” that her city is experiencing, this liberal would still think that everything is still fine and seems like nothing happening.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot: “Crime is not out of control in our city. In fact, crime is on the decline.”

Mind you, this is the same ding-a-ling who also claims there was no “violent rioting” last summer.
People would think that this woman might have also gotten what illness Biden has.
But it is not the case, Dems know exactly what’s going on, they’re just playing a “word game” and hoping enough clueless and dumb Americans buy the hooey they’re selling.
So far, it’s not working out how they planned…what Dems are engaging in right now is 90s-style political posturing – and that worked really well back when social media was non-existent, but it doesn’t work in this day and age when information is flowing like the Mississippi River.
Here’s an excerpt from Breitbart just reported about the most “gun-controlled” city in the US:
Nearly 100 people were shot, 17 fatally, Friday night through Monday night in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
ABC 7 reported 98 people were shot in the time-frame of “Friday at 6 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Monday,” and 17 of those shooting victims succumbed to their wounds.
The Chicago Sun-Times listed the number of fatalities at 19.
ABC 7 pointed out that 87 people were shot during that same period over the Independence holiday in 2020.
The violence over the long weekend follows a Thursday on which 32 people were shot. Thursday’s wounded included a one-month-old girl who was shot in the head.
The violence and death have surged to such levels that Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown plans to speak at a press conference and take questions Tuesday afternoon.
On July 5, 2021, Brown tweeted: “Our officers continue to work tirelessly to keep our city safe. As of today, Chicago Police Department has recovered over 6,100 guns: a 26% increase from the same period last year. I commend our officers for their continued hard work during these challenging times for law enforcement.”
The Sun-Times observed there were over 1,892 shootings in Chicago from January 1, 2021, through June 28, 2021, a 12 percent increase over the same time frame last year.
And things get even harder for politicians like Lori Lightfoot when her own city officials start calling her out, like Chicago Alderman Anthony Napolitano…he used 5-little words to absolutely cut Lightfoot to the core of her political soul…
Alderman Napolitano said this about Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago, “This is a war zone…” according to Bizpacreview report.
He was also highly critical of the mayor for her “nonsense,” and also slammed Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whom he said was “by far the worst in the nation.”
She’s the one who let Jussie Smollett off with a slap on the wrist.
A former police officer, Napolitano said Chicago is “averaging over 6,000 people shot over the last 18 months,” and in response to Lightfoot’s claim that illegal guns brought in from surrounding areas are largely responsible for the gun violence, Napolitano said that’s “pure nonsense.”
“We have the strongest and the strictest gun laws in the state, if not the country,” he said, adding that areas bordering the city have “nowhere near the amount of crime we do.”
“We have a people problem here in Chicago and I’ve been saying this for a long time, we have zero accountability for parents in the city of Chicago,” the alderman insisted. “Nobody is raising their kids anymore, the gangs are raising them.”
Well, The Chicago Sun-Times also begs to differ from Lori Lightfoot’s claims that crime is on the decline.
The paper actually says flat-out that’s not true. At all.
They reported that at the halfway point of the year, “more people have been shot and more people have been killed in Chicago than this time last year when violence reached levels not seen since the mid-1990s.”
The Sun-Times goes on to say that there have been at least 336 homicides for the first six months of 2021, which is two more than at this point in 2020, adding that “last year was one of the deadliest in the city in decades, with 775 killed, a sharp spike from the 500 homicides in 2019.”
There were a total of 252 homicides in 2019 – so the increases over the past two years are staggering.
Crimes in Chicago are getting higher every month, but instead of admitting that and addressing it, the Chicago Mayor would rather lie to her citizens and talk about how there are too many “white male reporters” in Chicago.
This is exactly what happened after allowing progressives to run a city. They will drive it into the ground and never bat an eyelash about it.
