BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – Ousted Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot explained away her Tuesday election loss as a result of her being a “Black woman in America.”

Lightfoot faced eight challengers and finished Tuesday night’s election in third place, failing to get enough support to continue into a runoff election. Reporters pressed her on whether she believed she was treated unfairly during the campaign process.

“I am a Black woman,” she told New Yorker magazine. “Let’s not forget: certain folks, frankly, don’t support us in leadership roles.”

“If that’s true, then how did you get elected at all?” the magazine asked.

Lightfoot visibly appeared to be angered by the question. “And apparently you don’t support me either, by asking me something knowing full well that any answer will make me look like an even bigger fool that I already am!”
