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.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
