She’d ship you to Wuhan [China] by chance. However what makes Lori Lightfoot uncommon is the remarkably aggressive approach 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 imagine each phrase of it.”

He did it,” Carlson stated. “This morning, Lightfoot ordered town to take right down to Christopher Columbus statues — one in Little Italy and one in Grant Park. That’ll repair the issue, you possibly can let your youngsters play outdoors now.”
