Here is Doug Ibendahl writing about poor Rahm:
“What the hell is going on in Chicago?” – President Donald Trump
A great question, and one Donald Trump has asked many times over the past two years, most recently this past Friday at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
In that address the President went on to say: “For the second year in a row, a person was shot in Chicago every three hours.”
Well it turns out the President was being too gracious. Someone crunched the numbers and if you take the 3,456 shooting victims in Chicago so far this year (as of last week), that works out to an average of one victim every 2 hours and 25 minutes.
It’s only thanks to the skill of Chicago’s medical professionals – and the considerable practice they get – that most shooting victims survive. So far this year shootings accounted for 608 homicides.
President Trump has to keep asking what’s going on because Chicago politicians won’t. They are too afraid. Honest self-reflection would mean exposing the truth that their irresponsible policies are the root cause of Chicago’s violence and other ills.
While his constituents remained hunkered-down under hostile fire, Mayor Rahm Emanuel flew off to New York early last week to yuck-it-up with fellow Trump hater Stephen Colbert. (Rahm’s brother Ari just happens to be Colbert’s agent.)
Emanuel repeated his tedious shtick about Chicago being a “Trump-free zone” and upped the buffoonery with: “Our motto: A city he’ll never sleep in. We don’t want him.”
The Mayor may not want the President of the United States, but he certainly wants to keep gorging on the enormous federal subsidies Emanuel’s bankrupt city government needs to stay afloat.
Emanuel demonstrates how easy it is to be a clown on the taxpayers’ dime, but providing competent leadership is another matter. Emanuel’s overt jealousy and resentment towards an actual do-er like President Trump is not only embarrassing to watch – it’s a severe detriment to the people the Mayor is paid to serve.
