Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago at one time defied President Trump’s involvement in the city’s rising crime.
But as things only get worse, she realized she could not refuse the help forever (not that she could prevent Feds from doing their job).
After opposing the use of federal law enforcement to end the surge in crime, it was reported she spoke with the president herself.
In an apparent attempt to win over radicals, she then removed a Columbus statue in the dead of night.
But it looks like she is have not won over the left-wing activists in her city. Because this is what they did next (WARNING: LANGUAGE):
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot agreed to let feds into Chicago. So this is the scene outside her house tonight.

This is the umpteenth time in as many days where the left-wing mob has turned on the Democratic leaders who defended them.
As violence and riots increased in blue cities, Democratic mayors refused to stop it. They told cops to stand down, then later promised to defund PDs.
What were the thanks they received from these radical groups? None, to say the least.
Bill de Blasio of New York was shouted at and slandered by protesters. CHOP residents invaded the mayor of Seattle’s neighborhood to storm her home.
Rioters in Portland insulted and jeered their mayor immediately after he voiced support. The mayor of Oakland’s home was vandalized after she promised to defund police (she later voted against the budget cuts).
And now, the mayor of Chicago gets to reap her own whirlwind.
If only these Democrats had listened to the millions of Americans who rejected this radical movement from the start.
Some say these liberal lawmakers embraced the mob to just win over voters. Conventional wisdom would have told them people who spray paint the Lincoln Memorial and burn churches don’t vote.
Only now are Democrats realizing the error of their ways as these radical anarchists turn on them in epic fashion.
The only question now is, will these Democrats wake up and begin to enforce law and order?
Or will they continue to turn a blind eye to the violence, even as it comes home to roost in their backyards?
- Radical activists stormed Mayor Lightfoot’s house after she relented to President Trump.
- This comes after nearly every Democrat who pandered to the mob faced backlash from the same group.
- Democrats in major cities ignored civilians to embrace violent rioters.
