The news is out: [White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany took a shot at Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday, calling the midwesterner “derelict” when it comes to dealing with crime in her city.
The Trump aide argued that cities with high crime rates, like Chicago, should take more federal assistance.
“The derelict mayor of Chicago should step up and ask for help because she’s doing a very poor job of securing her streets,” McEnany said.
This came after McEnany dodged questions about President Donald Trump’s refusal to acknowledge that Black Americans are killed at much higher rates by police than white people. Instead, she pointed to evidence that Black people are much more likely to be victims of all kinds of homicide.
Lightfoot, Chicago’s first Black female mayor, didn’t mince words in her response.
“Hey, Karen. Watch your mouth,” she tweeted, using the popular term to refer to entitled, racist white women.]
Just like that, Kayleigh McEnany got served.
