McEnany Slams Chicago Mayor For Calling Her A ‘Karen’
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who called her a ‘Karen’ Thursday, suggesting she’s been neglecting the ongoing violence in her city and should spend less time attempting to insult her on Twitter.
“While you’re focused on words, America is outraged by the violence perpetuated in our city,” McEnany wrote on Twitter in response to Lightfoot’s accusation. “One person is taking action to stop violence in our streets: President @realDonaldTrump. He’s offered your city help. It’s a dereliction of duty not to take it.”
The term ‘karen’ is used to describe a “rude, obnoxious and insufferable middle aged white women,” according to Urban Dictionary.
Lightfoot used the ‘Karen’ label after McEnany called her “the derelict mayor of Chicago” and highlighted the Trump Administration’s offers to aid her city.
Over Father’s Day weekend, 102 people were shot, and, over 79 people were shot over the Fourth of July holiday weekend in the City.
