She’d ship you to Wuhan [China] by chance. However what makes Lori Lightfoot uncommon is the remarkably aggressive method that she lies. Lightfoot says issues which are so implausible they could possibly be a part of a comedy routine. However she’s not joking. She expects you to consider each phrase of it.”

“See, it is the Republicans’ fault that Chicago is now extra harmful than many Third World international locations. That is smart. The issue is there aren’t actually any Republicans in Chicago.
