Cuomo’s Gift to a Woman: Chicago Cops Turn Their Backs On Mayor Lightfoot

The resignation of New York’s governor Andrew Cuomo after numerous allegations of sexual harassment appears to have benefited a big city mayor who escaped negative national news coverage.

A female Chicago police officer was killed and her male partner was wounded when they were ambushed during a routine traffic stop on Saturday night. She had just returned from maternity leave.

Later that night, hundreds of her comrades gathered outside the hospital to show support for their wounded brother and murderer sister officers

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who’s anti-police rhetoric is believe to have resulted in a surge in  crime in the city, also made a visit to the hospital.

As she approached the 30+ grieving officers and the patient’s family, it was clear she was not welcome.

When Lightfoot tried to address the group, they all walked to the other side of the room and turned their backs on the city’s  disgraceful mayor.
