'Her Time is Up:' Lori Lightfoot Torched for Claiming Voters Oppose Her Because She's Black

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was blasted for blaming her abysmal reelection prospects on being a black woman in power.

“I’m a Black woman and, let’s not forget, some folks frankly don’t support us in leadership roles,” Lightfoot told The New Yorker.

Local radio host Ray Stevens summed up Lightfoot’s impending fate by simply stating, “I think Lori’s time is up.”

“Personally, I don’t [think she can pull off this race], but I’ve been wrong before as the polls have in the past,” he said earlier in the segment.

Stevens added that race would boil down to key issues like crime, not skin color or gender.

“Chicago has a rampant crime problem, and not only is it in Chicago, but its has reached the collar counties… crime, crime is going to be the issue in this election and, personally, what I’m hearing from my constituents, from listeners, is that it will come down to [Paul] Vallas [or] Brandon Johnson.”

According to recent polls, Lightfoot trails Vallas by 19 points and Johnson by two.

“I think those are your two guys,” Stevens continued.

“There may be a surprise, but I think the rhetoric we just talked about, what you just talked about is what will hurt Lori Lightfoot – crime, and she just doesn’t come across as somebody that cares about people.”

Stevens noted that the majority of the city’s leaders are people of color, adding that Chicago is “very diverse.”

“I don’t think it comes down to race. There are people living in these communities that just want to be safe,” he said.

Lori Lightfoot now finds herself as the underdog as she seeks a tough reelection bid.

However, voters who are fed up with soaring crime and identity politics, are singling a fresh start without her.

Reelection prospects for Lori Lightfoot are dire not because she’s a black woman in power, but because her city is falling apart.

If Lightfoot fails to become one of the top two vote-getters in Tuesday’s primary, she could become the first incumbent Chicago mayor to lose an election in over thirty years.

“She’s an underdog this time around for different reasons than she was an underdog last time,” said longtime political operative Victor Reyes.

“Last time, she was an unknown and she was the counter to the traditional political establishment folks, and the vote split was happening in a different way back then. And this time, she’s like the target of everybody’s ire, right?” Reyes continued.

“She’s getting attacked from the left; she’s getting attacked from the right. And she doesn’t have any ground footing with any significant solid base of votes.”

Beetlejuice is running against two other black candidates. It is not because she is black it is because she sucks at her job. She is like all liberals not taking responsibility for her results and is gaslighting with the same old tired racist tirade. Hopefully one of the other candidates is better and will turn Chitown around.

She might get further in her complaint if she said they didn’t want to vote for her because she is so ugly. Black people get to do a much greater portion of the commericals these days as compared to the percentage of population. You never see them using unattractive black people and to be quite honest, about 80% of them are half white.

“Beatle Juice” is out? I’d like to think Chicagoans finally get it, but no… They elected another demonrat. “Educator” at that. Continue down the road of destruction! With Pritzkicker helping in the destruction.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
