    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Isn't Holding Back: Trump's Coronavirus Task Force Is 'Clueless'

    For the past two months, as the novel coronavirus silently crept through her city, Lori Lightfoot, the Democratic mayor of Chicago, tried in vain to get the attention of the Trump White House. She wrote letters to President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who leads the White House Coronavirus Task Force, pleading with them to coordinate their response efforts with the local leaders who would have to implement their “edicts,” as Lightfoot calls them.

    After months of getting no response, and as the number of cases in Chicago climbed, Lightfoot, the first black woman and first openly gay person to lead the nation’s third-largest city, took to the president’s two favorite mediums, TV and Twitter. On the Today show last month, she blasted the president for making statements about the coronavirus that “are not based in fact or science and are just wildly wrong.” On Twitter, she told Trump to “step up and be a leader” or get out of the way. (Awww, the jack*ss had hissy fits and temper tantrums because she didn't get the attention she felt she deserved, and because the federal government didn't jump when she said jumb and didn't do her job for her. One word describes her and many Democrats - BITCH)
    Mayor Lightfoot #StayHomeSaveLives @chicagosmayor

    .@realDonaldTrump, dear Lord—please step up and be a leader. While you have been yammering about hoaxes and fake news, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit all over America. @GovPritzker and others have filled this country’s leadership gap. Lead or get out of their way. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1241760294776561667 …

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    .@JBPritzker,

    Governor of Illinois, and a very small group of certain other Governors, together with Fake News @CNN & Concast (MSDNC), shouldn’t be blaming the Federal Government for their own shortcomings. We are there to back you up should you fail, and always will be!

    Back home, her dour-faced admonitions to “stay home, save lives” have become viral meme fodder. Stir-crazy Chicagoans have reimagined her as her city’s omnipresent guardian, a public-health Batman watching over the city and hell-bent on keeping people off the beaches and out of the streets.

    Finally, on Sunday evening, Lightfoot and Pence spoke by phone to discuss Chicago’s dire need for more masks and ventilators. On Monday, the state of Illinois reported more than 1,000 new cases, with the death toll at 307 people. Lightfoot’s office described the call with Pence as “cordial,” which is about as polite as the mayor has sounded when talking about the Trump White House and its efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

    Ahhh, yes. Remember when the Democrats were touting how WONDERFUL it was to have a BLACK, LESBIAN WOMAN as mayor?

    Did you get the message? Her black skin color, vagina and her sexual love of women were what made her qualified for the position of mayor. Those were the 3 things about her that were the most important.

    And she demonstrates that's ALL she brought to the position.

    She did NOTHING because she didn't have the attention of President Trump and then her response - Jack*ss-like she took to the media to LIE about President Trump.

    Vote for someone based on skin color, whether they have a vagina and who they sexually love and you get what you vote for.

    This Jack*ss should have been in coordination/working with ILLINOIS's GOVERNOR not expecting President Trump to do her work for her.

    Even when you don't know who is a Democrat or who is a Republican Mayor/Governor, you can tell BY THE WAY THEY RESPOND TO EMERGENCIES and the way they speak to people.
    OBAMA'S H1N1 VIRUS: From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

    Ah, a Democrat mayor of Chicago. How long before she goes to jail for corruption? After all it's a tradition for the mayor of that city to be dirty.

    Lightfoot is a lawyer who got her JD from the University of Chicago in 1989.

    Deborah Birx got her MD from Pennsylvania State University in 1980. From 1980 to 1989 she was a physician at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and was in the Army Reserve. From 1983 to 1986, she completed fellowships in clinical immunology in the areas of allergies and diagnostics. From 1986 to 1989, Birx worked at the National Institutes of Health as an investigator specializing in cellular immunology. From 1989 to 1995 she worked in Walter Reed's Department of Retroviral Research, as an assistant chief and then chief of the division. She was lab director in HIV-1 Vaccine Development for a year. Birx became the Director of the United States Military HIV Research Program at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, a position she held for nine years, from 1996 to 2005. From 2005 to 2014, Birx served as the director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Global HIV/AIDS (DGHA).

    Lightfoot is a lawyer and a politician.

    Seema Verma received a bachelor's degree in life sciences from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1993. She earned a Master of Public Health with a concentration in health policy and management from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in 1996. Verma served as vice president of planning for the Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County and worked at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials in Washington, DC. In June 2001 Verma founded and became president and CEO of SVC Inc., which has worked with state insurance agencies and public health agencies in preparation for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and assisted Indiana and Kentucky, as well as other states, in the design of Medicaid expansion programs under the ACA.

    Lightfoot is a lawyer and a politician. The White House Coronavirus Task Force (I only gave info about two members) is loaded with people of very specialized medical expertise/experience, of medical organization and administrative expertise/experience, and of a wide variety of expertise/experience necessary to coordinate the logistics and address the full range of concerns in a national effort. Lightfoot is an angry light-weight partisan smack-talking out of her own ignorance and partisan hatred, which does serious disservice to the people of Chicago.

    LOL!

    But highly doubtful. Have the DUmmies expressed outrage that Lightfoot justified getting her hair cut/styled, while the general public can't? She claimed it is important because she is a public figure.

    Usually just Governors in Illinois go to jail, not Chicago mayors. Hopefully that giant pus-bag Pritzger follows in that grand Land of Lincoln tradition.

    WALSH: Big City Mayors Are Blatantly Violating Their Own Social Distancing Rules. Here’s What That Tells Us..

    https://tiny.iavian.net/z7gc

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/walsh...-that-tells-us

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has instructed the citizens of his city to stay home and avoid non-essential travel. That apparently has not stopped him from*driving nearly 12 miles*to take a stroll in a park. It should be noted that de Blasio’s mayoral mansion is located on an 11-acre plot in the middle of a different park. There is no reason – certainly not an “essential” reason – why he needs to make the journey to another park well over 200 blocks away, especially as the other residents of the city have been warned against doing that sort of thing.

    Mayor de Blasio defended his defiance of his own stay-at-home orders by saying the strolls “help him” and allow him to be “effective.” One can only shudder at the thought of what it must look like when de Blasio is ineffective.

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago is an even bigger and more blatant hypocrite. A few days ago,*she got a professional haircut*and posed for a picture with her stylist, who was certainly standing much closer than six feet away. This is the same woman who forcibly shut down every hair salon and barber shop in the city, and reserves the right to fine or arrest anyone who does exactly what she just did. The good mayor even recorded a friendly quarantine PSA where she specifically said that getting your hair done “is not essential.”

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Defends Decision to Get Haircut Amid Coronavirus Crisis
    https://blackamericaweb.com/2020/04/...tfoot-haircut/

    I guess ignoring orders meant to save the lives of others is OK if you're a politician.

    This Chicky-doodle has ZERO right to comment on anything Corona. She's getting people sick so she can maintain her rather ugly hairstyle.
