Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel touched off a firestorm last week when he announced his support for a local alderman’s attempt to prevent a Chick-Fil-A franchise from opening in his upscale neighborhood.
“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said in a statement, referring to the company’s opposition to same-sex marriage. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents.”
Now the Second City Network has released a parody video, titled “Rahm Welcomes You to Chicago,” that plays off the notoriously foul-mouthed mayor’s statement.
“Chicago has a rich history of diversity, tolerance, and inclusivity,” the Rahm impersonator beings. “So — if you motherfuckers try and get in the city I’m building in my own image, I will fuck you. I will fuck you like I fucked Larry Summers, teachers, and the 50 state strategy. That’s hard, lubeless, and with a taste and sophistication that says ‘Rahm.'”
After that, it gets really obscene.
This video was uploaded to YouTube by The Second City network on August 3, 2012.
Video catches woman in Central Park falsely reporting ‘an African-American man threatening my life’
A video circulated on social media on Monday showed a woman in Central Park falsely claiming that an "African-American man" threatened her life.
The incident was said to occur between a man and a white woman over the Memorial Day weekend. Cell phone video shared on Twitter revealed a verbal confrontation as the woman was exercising her dog without a leash.
After the man asked the woman to put her dog on a leash, he took out his phone to film her.
"Please stop," the woman says. "Sir, I'm asking you to stop recording me."
"Please don't come close to me," the man replies.
Trump is ‘losing it’ and ‘devolving down into rabbit holes of conspiracy theories’: Conservative TV host
On Monday, conservative CNN talk show host S. E. Cupp slammed President Donald Trump for his behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"I think no matter who the president is, there's always going to be someone criticizing the response to a disaster," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "But something that has been true since the beginning of this is that the president really had a real opportunity, handed one, to unify people, to lead, to set a tone, and he's really squandering it, isn't he?"
"I think we should say, Brianna, this has long gone past offensive, and distasteful. I think what we're seeing is the president losing it," said Cupp. "I don't think that the president's behavior is that of a healthy, stable, balanced person. That he can't focus all of his energy and efforts and attention on this global pandemic, on securing the physical and economic safety and health of this country, is very alarming. Instead, devolving down these rabbit holes of conspiracy theories, baseless conspiracy theories as you pointed out, attacking women for their looks and their weight, you know, threatening governors, one in Michigan for mail-in voting, another in North Carolina for not guaranteeing a full house at the RNC."
Trump ally: It’s ‘unrealistic’ to say president shouldn’t golf just because people are dying of COVID-19
On CNN Monday, former Trump adviser and Republican lobbyist David Urban defended President Donald Trump's decision to take a golf outing as coronavirus deaths approached 100,000.
"Every death is horrible," Urban said. However, "people die in America every day, and just to expect the president to sit frozen in his office is unrealistic."
The US approaches 100,000 coronavirus deaths, while this weekend President Trump played golf.
