Sunday, Chicago Mayor responded to what she called “homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors” claiming she would resign and said she would not.
1/ Good morning from my mansion in Sauganash.
Seriously, though—our city doesn’t have any time for homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors, today or any day.
2/ It’s shocking and disappointing to see some media members and verified Twitter handles are peddling this trash as truth.
3/ If people hadn’t noticed, we have major challenges in Chicago we need to address TOGETHER. This nonsense that some apparently have the luxury of indulging in has not fed one person, stopped the pandemic, housed anyone living on the street or saved one young person.
4/ Anyone who wants to work with me to make progress, I’m ready. Even if we don’t always see eye to eye, if you actually love this city and want to be part of making it better, let’s do the work.
The rest of you, get out of the way.
5/ I will continue to lead a group of the willing all across our city who are about doing the people’s work. The people of Chicago elected me mayor, and I will continue to serve today, tomorrow and into the future. Back to work.
P.S. – I did not move into a fantasy castle in Sauganash. Enjoy your Sunday.
