Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she won’t apologize after leaked text messages showed her name-calling the Chicago police union president.
Lightfoot’s texts with Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara came after protests near a Christopher Columbus statue in Chicago’s Grant Park turned violent July 17, according to WGN News. Catanzara texted Lightfoot Saturday saying he was upset with her response to which she responded angrily, WGN reported.
“I made a very strong statement about the planned attack on our officers. You are better than the cartoon character that you allow yourself to become,” Lightfoot responded to Catanzara in a text message, according to WGN.
She added: “Apparently you are officially a clown,” WGN reported.
