of Targeting Cities With Female Mayors

Original Article

Posted By: AltaD, 6/30/2020 12:42:21 PM

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot accused President Donald Trump of targeting Democratic, female mayors in larger U.S. cities with "misogynistic and racist rants" after the president wrote a letter to her on the city's increasing violence. "What's abundantly clear over this last month in particular, there's some obvious dots to connect as part of his regular rotation of criticisms," Lightfoot said during an unrelated press conference Monday. "He has started attacking and trying to undermine every big city Democratic mayor, especially the women."

Comments:

According to one website, there have been 334 homicides in Chicago this year. Maybe the mayor should focus on that.

Well, the jury’s out on Lori as a female, but the female mayors have not been doing a very good job. Many are black, but feckless Jenny in Seattle isn’t. They do have one thing in common: All the ones who seem unable to manage their cities are Democrats.

BTW, Lori, if this is a lame attempt to torpedo the female vote for Trump, the most intelligent among us do not travel in packs. We are not all raving feminists who vote our sex. We vote for the best person for the office. You and a lot of your mayoral cohorts are not the best of the bunch.

I didn't realize she had such a sensitive soul. Too bad she doesn't think the same of her fellow black Chicagoians who are being killed and shot by other blacks. With a very hot 4th of July coming up I can only imagine the numbers. Seems to me the President is throwing a lot around to all the democrats in power. Mayor, time to do your job or pass the thorch. Your poor handling of the city has nothing to do with you being a woman, black or a demorat. You are just bad at your job.

That's because female mayors suck and they have the worst records of all in the country, because the vast majority have that big "D" in front of their names. They are basically token ribbon cutters and dinner planners but their liberal tendencies don't allow them to perform the entire job. Even in small towns they manage to muck things up. Imagine if we had a female president right now.

Just a sidebar OMG she has got to be one of the downright scariest looking people on the planet. No dear he's actually targeting cities where young black men shoot and often kill other young black men and several small children at a rate of 80 per weekend. That's your problem. If Rahm (Mr. Crisis) was still mayor Trump would be chewing on him.

Honey, if the shoe fits, wear it. You own it. President Trump tried to help and you refused. Are you a human being who happens to be a black lesbian. We are getting tired of those who use racism and genderism and other such stupid ism's for an excuse when they mess up or can't handle a situation. She obviously can't handle it so "get out of the kitchen." People are dying and she is trying to blame anyone but the murderers. It has to stop!

Why even comment on the idea of a female being any better or worse as a Mayor or anything else? It's a false flag. President Trump has said no such thing nor has he eluded to the fact that their incompetence has anything to do with their gender. He criticized Jay Pritzker in the same letter and last I looked he was male. Same for many of the others he's criticized. It's based on performance or lack there of. No reason to even be baited into this lunatic's gender or race as a reason for the criticism. She should be embarrassed to even bring such a topic up when people are dying in her streets by the hundreds. But, she's a leftist so I shouldn't expect anything more.

I don’t think that President Trump ever called out female Mayors specifically because of their gender, what he has been doing is calling out totally incompetent leftist and liberal Democrat Mayors who have been running the inner cities where just about all the rioting, burning and looting of private and public property has been going on. Just because some of those Mayors happen to be females, that is just tough!

Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter on Independence Day to deliver a strong rebuke to the celebration of the nation’s founding.According to Kaepernick, America has “dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized” blacks for centuries. He further called the celebrations commemorating the nation’s founding a “celebration of white supremacy.” (Tweet/Video) Kaepernick, the NFL’s original anthem protester, has not played in the NFL since the end of the 2016 season. After a long legal battle with the NFL, in which he accused the league of “blackballing” him and fellow protester Eric Reid, the NFL eventually settled the suit with Kaepernick. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently apologized for not listening to Kaepernick and other protesters.
