A reporter who had his press pass wrongfully revoked by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for asking tough questions really let her have it at a city council meeting this week.
There’s a longer video of his remarks where he blasts her for shutting down the city during the padnemic in 2020, not even mentioning what she did to him.
And all of that leads up to this moment where he tells her to get the hell out of his city.
Lightfoot is sitting at the top.

During his comments, the woman from the dais was shouting “there was a pandemic”. That’s when he replied “You are a pandemic” and walked away.
You can watch his full comments below. Just make sure you turn your volume all the way because the audio is very low.
Here's a clip from my statement to Mayor #LoriLightfoot from the floor of the Chicago City Council today. An ally of Lightfoot's tried to insult me at the end – and I responded to her too. See the full speech here: https://t.co/O5akkC20z2 pic.twitter.com/FLqIsVSDFM
