Rep. Boebert and the Chicago Lightfoot Exchange Jabs after the Mayor’s Call to Arms

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) traded blows with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) this week after the Democratic mayor issued a ‘call to arms’ over the leaked Supreme Court draft ruling canceling Roe vs. Wade.

On Monday, days after the leak, Lightfoot echoed the panic of pro-abortion activists, calling on his LGBTQ allies to action.

“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community, the Supreme Court comes next for us. This moment must be a call to arms,” the Democrat said. “We will not give up our rights without a fight, a fight for victory! » :

Lightfoot’s call to arms raised eyebrows, as some like Boebert recognized the irony of his statement, since Democrats have long accused Donald Trump and his allies of encouraging the Jan. 6 insurgency.

“Insurgent”, joked the deputy, provoking a retort from the mayor.

“Excuse me. Insurrection is your thing. Not ours,” Lightfoot wrote:

It remains unclear how Lightfoot mentally justified his own seemingly literal call to arms by ignoring it with reference to the Jan. 6 protests. While Democrats and a handful of RINO Republicans have accused Trump of inciting the insurrection, the effort has not prevailed.

Boebert, however, took the opportunity to point out the Democratic mayor’s incredible inability to control the rampant violence in her own city:

“Lori Lightfoot just issued a ‘call to arms’ to her fellow radicals directly on Twitter,” the MP continued. “While people are being killed daily on her streets, all she can worry about is putting more lives at risk with her reckless words. Shame on her”:

Indeed, Chicago had another violent weekend, as 23 people were eventually shot, as reported by Breitbart News. Nearly 200 people have been killed in the city this year alone, according to reports.
