Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot launched into a bizarre tirade on Twitter Friday where she vowed to protect “women’s and LGBTQ+ rights” from the “MAGA crowd” and US Supreme Court.

“The single most patriotic thing a person can do is fight for their rights. You better believe I’m going to fight for women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, voting rights and every other freedom the MAGA crowd or Supreme Court is trying to take away,” posted Lightfoot on Twitter.


Lightfoot faced a growing backlash earlier this week when she urged progressives to take up “arms” to protect abortion rights across the United States.

“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community — the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms,” the Chicago mayor tweeted.

“We will not surrender our rights without a fight— a fight to victory!”
