BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s comments this week on COVID-19 are a far cry from her “stay-at-home” orders for Thanksgiving.
The Windy City Democrat who urged citizens to “cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans” now says it’s time to “get our restaurants and bars reopened as quickly as possible.”
“If we have people and give them an outlet for entertainment in the restaurant space, in the bar space, we have much more of an opportunity, in my view, to be able to regulate and control that environment,” Lightfoot said at a press conference. “Also domestic violence has increased dramatically at home among gang members, because they cannot go out to drink and eat. This new idea I have, I’m calling it, ‘Beer, Biscuits, and Bullets’.”
