CHICAGO—Mayor Lori Lightfoot made a public announcement, urging Chicagoans to get the COVID vaccine to keep everyone safe while they are shooting each other this weekend.
“This pandemic is far from over, and we want to make sure that everyone is safe while they gun down half of their neighbors in broad daylight this weekend,” Lightfoot said in a press conference.
While Lightfoot allowed some limited activities to resume in the past months, she is urging everyone to get vaccinated so that they are protected from COVID while they are shooting each other in the faces.
While many activities saw a decline in interest during the pandemic, shooting other human beings maintained its great popularity in Chicago, despite the fact that Lightfoot banned shooting people last year.
Murders were up 50% in Chicago in 2020 and continued on that trend early this year.
“We’ve reconciled to the fact that Chicago is just going to do Chicago and that involves mass murders almost every weekend,” Lightfoot said. “We are just going to make sure that people are properly vaccinated so that they don’t harm anyone while they’re popping caps on that ass.”
“It’s Trump’s fault. And racism,” Lightfoot said.
