(FreedomJournal.org)- Disgraced Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, swore at South Side Alderman Raymond Lopez during a conference call with the city council on Sunday. In leaked audio, Lightfoot can be heard dismissing Lopez after he explained his concerns about the violence erupting across Chicago.
You may remember Lightfoot from a story in April. After telling her residents to stay at home, and stating that visits to the barbershop or salon were not essential, she was snapped on camera with her hairstylist after treating herself to a haircut.
This new scandal, however, is arguably much worse. In the audio below, you’ll hear Lightfoot listening to the concerns of Lopez, before thanking him for the question and refusing to answer it. Lopez described his concerns about rioters leaving the city and moving onto suburban areas where, he suggests, they may begin breaking into homes and stealing as they did with the stores.

“When downtown is in lockdown, our neighborhoods are next,” Lopez said. “We’re seeing this destruction…We have seen where, in other cities, this has gone on for days, and we need to come up with a better plan for days, at least for the next five days, to try and stabilize our communities.”
When Lightfoot tried to ignore his comments, Lopez insisted that she respond. And she did.
“I think you’re 100% full of shit, is what I think,” she claimed.
Despite seeing the city around her being destroyed, the Mayor of Chicago told an Alderman that he was…lying?
Lopez responded in kind, saying, “No offense, f*ck you then. Who are you to tell me I’m full of shit? Maybe you should come out and see what’s going on.”
Lightfoot then continued to dismiss the seriousness of the riots.
“If you think we’re not ready, and we stood by and let the neighborhoods go up, there’s nothing intelligent that I could say to you,” she said. “That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I understand you want to preen.”
In an interview with CBS 2 after the call, Lopez described how many parts of Chicago, including Brighton Park, Gage Park, Back of the Yards, and Englewood had been completely destroyed by rioters.
Why doesn’t the Mayor of Chicago want to do something about it?
