Time to take a look in the mirror, Lori
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lamented the loss of "respect for the institutions of our democracy" and "toxicity in our public discourse" in the wake of Monday's mass shooting during a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois. This is the same Lori Lightfoot who just last week publicly shouted "F*** Clarence Thomas," demonstrating a stunning lack of respect for a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
"What it feels like is happening in this moment in our democracy is people are losing respect for the institutions of our democracy," Lightfoot said during a news conference on Tuesday. "The toxicity in our public discourse is a thing I think we should all be concerned about," she added.
"We have got to focus on what brings us together and not what tears us apart, and we've got to get back to respect for each other and respect for community. And that's the thing, I think, that concerns me the most over the arc of the last two years," Lightfoot, who in May urged for a "call to arms," had the audacity to suggest.

Last week, however, the definitely-not-toxic Democrat publicly shouted "F*** Clarence Thomas," ripped into anyone who objected to her wanton lack of respect, and later doubled down with a tweet proudly captioned "I said what I said."
