Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lashed out against White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Twitter Thursday, referring to McEnany as “Karen”, a slur used to denigrate white women.
Lightfoot made the comments on Twitter after Time Magazine White House Correspondent Brian Bennett had reported that McEnenany referred to her as “the derelict Mayor of Chicago.”
“Hey, Karen,” the mayor wrote in response. “Watch your mouth.”
‘Karen’ according to Wikipedia has become a pejorative term for white women “perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary.”
Aside from calling Lightfoot the accurate term ‘derelict,’ McEnany also ripped her for inaction resulting in the city of Chicago being left in shambles.
In naming “other things” President Trump has to tend to, McEnany explained “namely Democrat cities not controlling their streets, namely the mayor of Chicago — people dying on the streets of her city every weekend.”
Monthly crime numbers published earlier this month by the Chicago Police Department show shootings on the rise by 45% and homicides up 34% over the same period of time the year before.
But this clown has time to launch a racially-tinged threat against the White House Press Secretary.
