Lesbian Chicago Mayor Calls Trump’s Visit to the City ‘Insulting, Ignorant Buffoonery’

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Monday slammed President Trump‘s visit to the city as “insulting, ignorant buffoonery.”

“It’s no surprise that @realDonaldTrump brought his insulting, ignorant buffoonery to Chicago,” the mayor tweeted following Trump’s Monday visit. “Luckily, in this city, we know the truth and we will not let anyone — no matter how high the office — denigrate who we are as a people or our status as a welcoming city.”

“Rather than belittle Chicago’s communities with hateful and dishonest rhetoric, he needs to go back to D.C. and face his fate,” Lightfoot added.

The mayor also defended Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, who Trump blasted after Johnson boycotted the president’s appearance.

“President Trump knows as much about policing as he does running a fair and transparent government. I stand by the Superintendent for living up to the values of this great city and its residents,” she wrote.
