Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Friday torched President Trump's controversial tweet about protests after the death of George Floyd, sharing a "coded" message: "It starts with 'f' and ends with 'you.'"
Lightfoot made the comment at a press briefing Friday, during which she condemned the death of Floyd and the actions by police as seen in a video of his arrest.
"It's impossible for me as a black woman who has been the target of blatant racism over the course of my life not to take the killing of George Floyd personally. Watching that poor man beg for his life and for the ability to breathe and then watching the life leave him there in the streets I felt angry, I feel sickened and a range of other emotions all at once," Lightfoot said at a moving press briefing Friday.
"Being black in America shouldn't be a death sentence," she said.
You're seriously going to come in here, invoke Colin Kapernick's name as if it belongs to some principled, honored activist that is fighting the good fight? This guy's name doesn't belong in the same paragraph, THE SAME BOOK as the name of Dr. MLK.
Please, spare me any Kapernick adulation. You lose all credibility bringing him into this mix.

King believed in the country the same as Fredrick Douglass. The difference between them and the idiots who claim to be down for the struggle today is that these idiots today don't believe in the country and it's ability to become a better place for everyone.
They believe it's evil to its core.
I refuse to stand with such men.
