Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was recorded during a heated and expletive-ridden exchange with a city alderman while addressing protests that turned violent after George Floyds death.
During a May 31 conference call with 50 aldermen, Alderman Raymond Lopez told Lightfoot that the city was unprepared for the demonstrations, according to a recording of the call obtained by a CBS affiliate in the city.
When downtown is in lockdown, our neighborhoods are next, and our failure to fully get ready for whats going on in the neighborhoods, were seeing this destruction, and were thinking that its going to somehow end tonight. We have seen where, in other cities, this has gone on for days; and we need to come up with a better plan for days, at least for the next five days, to try and stabilize our communities, Lopez, who is a known critic of Lightfoot, said.
Lopez said that looters might spill over into residential areas and wanted answers on how the city would handle that.
Once theyre done looting and rioting and whatevers going to happen tonight, God help us, what happens when they start going after residents? Going into the neighborhoods? Once they start trying to break down peoples doors, if they think theyve got something, he said. "Ive got gangbangers with AK-47s walking around right now, just waiting to settle some scores. What are we going to do, and what do we tell residents, other than good faith people stand up? Its not going to be enough.
Lightfoot initially didnt answer Lopezs inquiry and wanted to move on to the next question. But Lopez said, Its not something you ignore. This is a question that I have. , Lopez replied.

The phone call then took a profane turn as the two elected officials began exchanging expletives. I think youre 100% full of shit, is what I think, Lightfoot said. F--- you, then," Lopez responded. "Who are you to tell me Im full of shit? ... Maybe you should come out and see whats going on. If you think were not ready, and we stood by and let the neighborhoods go up, theres nothing intelligent that I could say to you," Lightfoot responded. "That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I understand you want to preen. Mayor, you need to check your f---ing attitude. Thats what you need to do, Lopez replied.
LORI LIGHTFOOT -- not such a light foot OR a decent mouth!
Communist lesbian on the loose. Get your shots now just in case she bites you.
In the Latino community, I’d look upon this ‘line’ crossed and shops looted...if the cops are not there to protect the community, then call in the Latino drug ‘gangs’ and ask them put an end to the looting and Antifa threat.
why did she say “I know you like to preen”, was that a little gay slur or what?
Idk this Raymond Lopez person so I have no idea, it’s just a strange term/word to use.
‘Next Question’ she says as parts of her city lay in ruins. That is the response of BLM and the left.
Mayor - You better call the President, the governor is not going to help unless the rioters come by and want to use the commode in his extra house.
I think the mayor handled herself well.
She didn’t totally lose control and blurt out the truth.
She didn’t scream:
“This is a national F’ing stratagy to get rid of Trump!”
“So, shut the F up and let the city burn!”
F*ck you, Lightfoot explained.
Want to trigger an angry lesbian?
Introduce God into the conversation.
F*ck you, Lightfoot explained.
Black Lives Matter, but not in Chicago where Blacks kill Blacks.
There is bad history between the two. He organized some demonstrations against the mayor some time ago. Her not responding to him the first time was a “scr#w you.”
No wonder that city is a mess.
