Other than hapless NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, there is no other mayor of a major city in America who more beclowns his or herself on a regular basis than the embattled Left-wing mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot.
Lightfoot’s latest effort came in the form of a ridiculous video in which she envisioned the “return of science,” as dreams about a yet-to-be-determined Biden presidency.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Twitter page posted a comedic video in which the mayor appears to wake up from a bad dream before realizing: “Thank God, science is back, baby.” https://t.co/bnkh6DbHgN

The video begins with Lightfoot restlessly awakening from a dream after falling asleep in a chair; in black and white, presumably for dramatic effect. As she grabs her forehead, she proclaims: “Thank God. Science is back, baby,” with a sigh of relief.

She then pats a globe on the table next to her chair: “And the earth… is round,” she says.”Not flat.” (“Hilarious,” ain’t it?) We then see a fake doctor creepily admonish:
“Washing your hands… does work. Social distancing… does matter. And wearing a face-covering… does help protect all of us. I do love science!”
“Science is back” displays on the screen as the video ends, then “let’s fight COVID together,” as upbeat corny music plays.
The new administration’s COVID-19 task force ushers in a new day for science and evidence-based policy-making. As a city, we look forward to working together to ensure the health of all Chicagoans. pic.twitter.com/b5QNqDuCTe

I assume the video was supposed to be funny. Show of hands; who thinks it was funny? And obviously, it was an off-the-mark shot at President Trump, particularly given face-masks on full display by virtually every supporter at his campaign rallies.
As you might imagine, it didn’t take long for Twitter users to respond; many of whom ridiculed the embattled mayor of the gun-death capital of America.
Is there anything in science that explains your voters killing each other in double digits every weekend?

More people die in your city each day of violence than Covid. Whatcha doing to fix that? Using science? Logic? Oh, that’s right, not a damn thing 😬

This Twitter user gave Lightfoot an update. You know, just in case she missed the news while she was making her silly video.
How many were shot this weekend?
Oh yea. https://t.co/kQkeMl6LGm

Jeff wondered if Lightfoot might have been dreaming about her order to remove statues of Christopher Columbus from two city parks in July — overnight, of course — to “protect public safety” “until further notice,” as reported by my RedState colleague Nick Arama.
“No… no…young people marching…I can’t raise the bridges in time…no, not the beloved Columbus statue!!” Oh whew it was only a dream. pic.twitter.com/PwZicEM4IJ

Matt Walsh dunked on Lightfoot — bigly — asking her, “Now that science is back, can we stop pretending that men can get pregnant?”

In addition to the heat Lightfoot has taken for the continuing out-of-control gun violence in the Windy CIty, she has had more than her share of controversy.
As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported in August, Lightfoot went off on a reporter after he asked her about coddling rioters.
In July, as RedState’s Brandon Morse reported, Lightfoot tried to play victim when President Trump expanded “Operation Legend” into Chicago.
As we reported in June, Lightfoot lost it against a city official who criticized her failed response to rioting.
And as RedState’s Kira Davis reported in May, Lightfoot was ridiculed over a hilarious PSA encouraging Chicagoans to “Stay Home, Save Lives.
The list goes on — but that’s about all of Lori Lightfoot we need for one day, I think.
