Trending Now: Chicago’s Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot Gets Slammed By Journalist William Kelly For Canceling His Media Certifications
An Emmy award-winning TV host, William J. Kelly, who is also a radio and print journalist, blasted the Democratic Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot for canceling his media certifications for asking “obvious questions” about the crime rate in the city.
Kelly also demanded for media certification power to be taken back from Mayor Lightfoot and the police superintendent and argued that it should be handed over to the constitution.
“On a weekly basis I was going viral asking you obvious questions and instead of answering them you told me that crime was down, my videos went viral, millions of views, comments, likes and shares and it was hurting your re-election campaign so you revoked my media credential. That should never happen in a free country.”
Last year, a federal judge overruled Kelly’s suit against Lightfoot, over the accusation of canceling his press certifications unlawfully in mid-2021.
Kelly’s First Amendment freedom of the press and the 14th Amendment equal protection claim and due process claim were canceled by Lori Lightfoot.
However, Kelly got his revenge recently.
Kelly grilled lightfoot’s COVID-19 precautionary practices, as the closure of churches, businesses, and schools left a permanent damage to the city of Chicago
“You became mayor, the people of Chicago elected you. You shut down our schools, you shut down the churches, you shut down the businesses. You did the one thing that I thought could never happen. As somebody who was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, I never thought in my life that I would ever see the city of Chicago brought down so low as you have managed to bring it down”
“Shame on you. That is a legacy that you are going to have to carry. Future historians are going to have a hard time understanding how you ever even became mayor of the city of Chicago. I intend to write that book.”
He also mocked Lightfoot by calling her a “pandemic” for Chicago and claimed she should move out of the city.
“I intend to make sure that at least there is some possible way for the city of Chicago to move forward. I hope that you realize what damage you have done to the city.”
“I hope that after today’s city council meeting, you will pack your suitcase and get the hell out of my city. You are a pandemic. You are a pandemic.”
