Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was quickly mocked for condemning the Colorado mass shooting while her own city is plagued by gang violence and fatal shootings.
The Democratic mayor of Denver said she was “sick.” after a deadly shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado that killed five people and injured dozens more.
“I’m tired of this nonsense. How many people must be killed? How many lives have been shattered? How long until it finally stops? We don’t have to live this way. And we don’t have to die this way “On Sunday, she posted on Twitter.
At least 20 people were shot and three were killed in shootings in Chicago over the weekend.
Lightfoot’s tweet was quickly ratioed, with Twitter users urging her to address her own city’s violence issues.
“I’m not sure, but it seems like you might be in a position to do something about murders in Chicago.” conservative radio host Dan O’Donnell tweeted.
Others mocked the mayor’s apparent lack of sensitivity in his tweet.
Dave Rubin, a conservative pundit and talk show host, referred to her as a clown.
