Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said President Donald Trump only points out the rising shootings and murders in her city to use as a “political punching bag.”

Mitchell said, “I want to also ask you about the violence this past weekend in Chicago, at least 60 shootings. The president jumped all over this, comparing it to — saying the city is worse than Afghanistan. your reaction as you’re trying to come to grips with all of this?”

Lightfoot said, “Well, look, if you go back over many years, President Trump has said a lot of disparaging things about the city of Chicago. He likes to use us as a political punching bag. But if the president was really committed to helping us deal with our violence, he would do some easy things. One is, he would push for universal background checks. He would push for an assault weapons ban. He would push to make sure that people who were banned from getting on airplanes can’t get guns. This is the kind of thing that federal leadership can do.”

“But as long as we are challenged with having states surrounding us, notably Indiana, that has very lax gun laws, where somebody can drive across the border and literally load up a vehicle with military-grade weapons and bring them back to the city of Chicago, we’re going to continue to be challenged,” she continued. “We’re doing an all-hands-on-deck strategy. We’re really focusing on the root causes of the violence. But fundamentally we have too many illegal guns on our street, and that is a direct result of a failure of federal leadership, which is why we need change in November. And we need the kind of leadership that Joe Biden is going to bring to our country

Chicago Mayors have used it like a Toilet/ATM for years.

How many people are being killed by "military grade assault weapons" vs regular handguns?

How about addressing the real issues lady.

WTF. We need Howard Stern's Beetlejuice in there too. 

Mayor Beetlejuice had the option of having the Illinois National Guard protect the city from the rioters/looters.

She chose to not use National Guardsmen.

Fuck her.

Her appearance should be disgussed more. I think we need a 30 for 30 on that shit. She does't even look like a real person. 

She looks like E.T.

It's the ultimate statement of Chicongolese logic: it's always somebody else's fault, most notably if they're white.  Somebody should ask that fetal-alchohol looking disgrace why she wanted to be a leader if she's unwilling to take responsibility to the city she leads.

1. One is, he would push for universal background checks.

How many murderers bought their guns legally? 

 

2.He would push for an assault weapons ban.

How many people killed in Chicago were killed w ARs? 

 

3. He could push to make sure that people who were banned from getting on airplanes can’t get guns

how many shooters were first banned from airplanes? 

 

 

All of these suggestions are fucking retarded and shows she has no grasp of the root issue plaguing her city

Nothing more than a shakedown for more money and a ploy to keep guns away from the law abiding.

Ugh, I hate this site.


 


I typed up a long post, but the FRAT version is literally none of the things she listed would curb the overwhelming handgun related crime in her city.


I hate that these things, regardless of ideology just go unchallenged in today's media.

Amazing. It's not they're fault, because it's someone else's fault. God damn white man always making black men do bad things.
