Tucker Carlson Says Lori Lightfoot Is Demented

Last month, Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot sparked outrage when she stated that she will not grant solo interviews to white journalists anymore. This irked a lot of professionals in the field, that even a latino reporter boycotted the mayor and refused to go to one of her press conferences.

“I am a Latino reporter @chicagotribune whose interview request was granted for today. However, I asked the mayor’s office to lift its condition on others and when they said no, we respectfully canceled. Politicians don’t get to choose who covers them,” said Chicago Tribune City Hall reporter Gregory Pratt in a tweet back in May.

Previously on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, the paleoconservative television host slammed mayor Lori Lightfoot for blaming gun laws as the reason behind the skyrocketing crimes in Chicago.

“It’s a national problem, the gun problem. Is it really? Chicago has long had some of the strictest gun control in the nation. Montana has virtually none. Who’s got a higher murder rate? This entire conversation is nonsense. Lori Lightfoot has no idea what she’s talking about, and in fact, she’s not very interested,” Carlson stated after showing recent news about recent mass shootings in the Windy City.

“As long as her own security detail shows up on time, Lightfoot doesn’t think much about crime. What she thinks about is radical social change — and this week, she got an assist from the U.S. Congress,” Carlson added. 

The Republican political commentator also slammed Lightfoot for the oppressive treatment of one of her staff, as evidenced in her leaked emails.

“In January, for example, Lightfoot told her staff: “I need office time every day!” exclamation point. She wrote that same line sixteen times in a row: “I need office time every day!” “I need office time every day!” “I need office time every day!”  And so on. Thirteen more times. Demented,” Carlson said.

“Lightfoot ended her email with this: “If this doesn’t change immediately, I will just start unilaterally canceling things every day. Have I made myself clear, finally?!” Carlson recounted.

Since becoming mayor in 2019, Lightfoot’s time was marred by city violence, racial inequality issues, policing problems and labor disputes among teachers and unions.

Then there was the story of Anjanette Young, a black woman whose home was wrongfully raided. Young subsequently sat down with mayor Lightfoot to ask for help in addressing the traumatic assault on her privacy and mental well-being. It turned out, Lightfoot didn’t put in any efforts to grant Young the justice that she deserves.

“I absolutely feel betrayed by the mayor. So mayor, you can threaten to dismiss this case. I’m very certain, and I’m not an attorney, that we will move forward in court and if we have to go to trial, I’m ready to go to trial,” Young told reporters.
