The latest tirade from Lightfoot comes after a video surfaced that sent her into a rage.
“I have seen the video which shows what appears to be a house party taking place inside a Chicago residence. What was depicted on the video was reckless and utterly unacceptable,” Lightfoot wrote on Twitter.
The house party defied the city’s stay-at-home orders, and the Mayor simply was not having it.
“Every single person who put themselves at risk, puts the next person at risk. The next person that they come into contact with is at risk, and the next person that they come into contact with at risk.”
The woman who owns the house was not at home and was not aware of the house party. Her children used her absence as an excuse to throw the illegal bash.

Mayor Lightfoot held a press conference and did not mince words.
“Now I’ve ordered Superintendent Brown to order all police districts to give special attention to these parties. And this is how it’s going to be.”
“We will shut you down, we will cite you, and if we need to, we will arrest you, and we will take you to jail. Period.”
State Representative LaShawn Ford also weighed in.
“To say that they should practice social distancing because it will save your life, you should wear a face mask because it will save your life – they don’t see that. They don’t see past the next minute,” Ford said.
Governor J.B. Pritzker issued shelter-in-place orders back on March 21.
