Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently disgraced herself and the office she holds by shouting to a crowd in Grant Park, “F*** Clarence Thomas.” She then doubled down on Twitter with a smirking picture, saying, “I said what I said.” She was referring to the U.S. Supreme Court justice who had authored an opinion supporting the court majority in overturning Roe v. Wade.
The fact is: the slow-rolling black-on-black genocide that has unfolded in Chicago during the Lightfoot Years has its roots in failed anger management. So the mayor herself should set a much better example.
It doesn’t help if the city’s highest elected official cannot control her own anger. In fact, it materially hurts. And to be clear, this is far from the first time Lightfoot has lost it.
