Laura Ingraham highlighted the growing violence in Chicago and how Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Democrats as a whole are doing nothing to tackle crime Thursday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

LAURA INGRAHAM: The scenes you’re watching are from downtown Chicago last night, where a massive group of teenagers took to the streets, and you can see them climbing onto city buses – it’s total chaos and it makes the inhabitants terrified even at the thought of going out. Every night, the town of Lightfoot, as in Lori Lightfoot, descends further into anarchy.


Yet somehow, this disaster of an unrepentant radical thinks she deserves re-election. So critics are obviously complaining that his tone is as ruthless as his politics is pointless. She has still not addressed the heinous attack on Dakotah Earley, 23, who was ambushed on Friday night, shot three times in the head and back and left for dead on the street in a neighborhood chic called Lincoln Park. After several surgeries, he still clings to life. No suspect is in custody.

Last night the bloodshed continued. Three young children were shot on the South Side. Two boys, ages 6 and 11, then about a mile and a half away, a 3-year-old girl. Unfortunately, this is nothing new. At least 73 people have been shot since last Friday in Chicago. At least 14 on Wednesday, 21 on Tuesday, 14 on Monday and 24 on weekends. So the young thugs – they go wild and they’re not afraid of anything. They don’t worry about the consequences. And why should they be?

Lightfoot will do nothing. In fact, she is required to take their side in any dispute with the police. And then, at the national level, the Democrats are similarly out of touch with reality. Tonight, many of you are wondering what happened to the America you love. There are pressing issues hanging over us, but they are busy making their abortion scramble, making costly escapades to Ukraine, and playing more of the pandemic by a president who campaigned to end it.
