Chicago's Mayor Lori Lightfoot hit out at White House press secretary Kaleigh McEnany Thursday calling her a 'Karen' for saying she's a 'derelict mayor'. McEnany was answering reporter questions during a press briefing earlier Thursday when she made several sharp comments about the mayor and accused her of 'doing a very poor job at securing her streets'. (Snip) The mayor responded on Twitter shortly afterward by sharing a screen grab of Bennett's tweet and adding, 'Hey, Karen. Watch your mouth'. The Democratic Mayor used the term Karen as the now common label used to refer to a demanding, middle-aged white woman

Comments:

In Marxist America, it's socially acceptable to have a special slur against WHITE women that stops conversation cold, even statements of demonstrable fact, as it means the target is not approved by People of Color and thus is negated. So after tearing down our monuments and renaming our sports teams, we're also now also relegated to the back of the bus.

Ah.... we now have a new insult to throw at white women when they are critical. Dont answer the allegation or complaint, just shut them down and minimize them by calling them a Karen.

The criticisms that cut the deepest are the ones that the person knows are true. The mayor has been derelict, clearly to her - blacks dying by the dozen every weekend are nothing to get upset about, nothing to make any big effort to stop. But being criticized for it - NOW THAT is a big deal.

I’m definitely not with it so I have no idea how the name Karen became hijacked or by whom. But I resent it. It is an insult to all the Karens out there to whom their definition doesn’t apply. So wrong.

Lightfoot acts as a front for criminals including drug gangs. If she or any other Democrat were to tighten up on their cities using the law their war chests would be empty. That also goes for Democrat governors and legislatures across the country. As to other posters her on Lucianne, it is beneath all of us to make a mockery of someone’s appearance for which they have no control. And besides, you are being too kind. She looks more like a cross between Trigger and The Fly.

Lori Lightfoot, Poo-Slinger Extraordinaire! Calling Kayleigh a Karen because she criticized her for doing a poor job (which is a severe understatement) keeping her citizenry safe. Hey Lori, we heard you on that conference call with the city officials-they called you out on doing a poor job too. Why can't Chicago elect a decent Mayor?

Lightfoot complains that the President of the United States hasn't cured all illness and stopped the violence in Chicago. Let's say that POTUS went to Chicago and proceeded to do just that. Imagine the howls of He's a tyrant! He's a dictator! He thinks a black woman(ish) can't do the job! He's a racist, sexi/homophobian. blah blah blah SHE has not fulfilled her campaign promises, she has not protected her city, she has not supported Law Enforcement who with support might finally be able to restore ooops, finally bring some peace and order to especially minority neighborhoods. This means hard work. I don't think she likes the hard work she got the job to do SHE made darn sure she got salon appointments when she had her city in shut-down, because she needed to look just right. She knows how to get some things done, other than her hair and nails... In her mind, SHE matters, no one else does. In other words, she is an arrogant, self-centered egotist, with a gigantic chip on her shoulder. For Kayleigh: my advice is, in response to any question regarding the Mayor, just say that the Mayor knows what she needs to do; if she does not protect her citizens, there is dereliction of duty. If she had requested help, and it was offered, and then she refused it, that is worse than dereliction, that is deliberate malfeasance. But do not engage in tit-for-tat (somehow that expression doesn't sound quite right). Not wasting time here in back and forth, the Mayor knows what she needs to do. It is my firm and urgent belief that POTUS needs to resume the daily or weekly (at minimum) covid updates. We have so many voices, opinions swirling, lies multiplying (new case reporting in FL and TX, for example); Fauci says one thing one day, another on another day. It's CONFUSION. Getting the economy back on track is extremely important, but people's sense of safety and well-being has overtaken economic welfare as critical. Democrat Governors and Mayors are stoking fears, and people are not getting one clear message from POTUS frequently. Furthermore, national news and cable news are NYC-centric. DO these at 5, do when maximum people will see. When in an emergency situation there is no clear sense of direction, people become desperate and, yes, do stupid things like maybe consider voting for a doddering puppet of the Left. So in order to neutralize the Bidenettes, President Trump absolutely must resume the briefings. AND make them brief. 1) Do a "flashback Friday: remind people what we were facing in the beginning (and remind people Dems were chasing the impeachment phantom); he needs to dispel the myths and the outright lies; 2) POTUS should present the summary of defeating the virus, then have the docs present newest science and medicine updates; then economic progress if appropriate. Only a few questions for him ON THE SUBJECTS. Stupid questions ought to be dismissed as stupid questions. "It's about time you ask a serious question, Ms or Mr Reporter, if you care about the facts to inform your audiences." Finally, avoid "campaign-like" discourse. Only mention Biden The Babbler if he tells yet another lie about Trump's covid response.

Two women were arrested Saturday afternoon for smearing black paint across the “Black Lives Matter” mural outside Trump Tower, with a city cop injured after he slipped while grabbing one of the suspects, police said. The chaotic scene—the third attack by vandals targeting the Midtown street art in a week—began around 3 p.m. when a car carrying four women and 10 cans of paint arrived at the Fifth Ave. site, according to witness/street artist Nina Khan and a photo of the vehicle. A video captured one of the two Black women involved in the incident pouring paint on the street,

The continued surge of Minneapolis police officers seeking disability benefits after the George Floyd unrest is heightening concerns of a police staffing shortage amid a wave of violent crime. Ron Meuser Jr., the lawyer handling the claims, said his office met with an additional 43 Minneapolis cops this week who have retained him. That’s in addition to the estimated 150 officers who Meuser said at a July 10 news conference had retained him. And it brings the total closer to 200 now, out of a sworn force of about 850.

A federal judge on Friday ordered the government to revive the DACA program as it existed before President Trump tried to phase it out in 2017, which means opening it up to brand new applications. That’s a key issue that had remained in limbo after last month’s Supreme Court ruling, which found the Trump phaseout cut too many corners. U.S. District Judge Paul W. Grimm, sitting in Maryland, issued an order restoring all parts of the program back to where they were, which means not only protecting current recipients but also approving new ones. It also renews an indirect pathway to citizenship,
