Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot denied what she called “homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors” alleging she planned to resign Sunday.
The mayor of the nation’s third-largest city issued the denial after a night of rumors spread on Twitter and elsewhere.
“Good morning from my mansion in Sauganash,” Lightfoot posted in reference to widespread rumors last summer that she bought a multimillion dollar mansion in the posh Northside neighborhood.
“Seriously, though — our city doesn’t have any time for homophobic, racist and misogynistic rumors, today or any day,” Lightfoot continued.
“It’s shocking and disappointing to see some media members and verified Twitter handles are peddling this trash as truth.”
Unconfirmed rumors of Lightfoot’s supposedly impending resignation circulated on Twitter on Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
Chicago has been on edge for weeks after a city cop shot and killed 13-year-old Adam Toledo last month.
Authorities had previously described the shooting as an “armed confrontation,” but disturbing bodycam footage released on Thursday showed Toledo unarmed with his hands up the moment he was shot.
In her tweets Sunday, Lightfoot called on city residents to disregard the rumors and get behind her leadership.
“If people hadn’t noticed, we have major challenges in Chicago we need to address TOGETHER,” she posted.

"If people hadn’t noticed, we have major challenges in Chicago"
Oh no, people haven't noticed at all, you ass.
God, she's sickening.
Always include those terms to gain sympathy from the “woke” crowd
Well it’s a pretty sure bet that there ain’t no way she’s gonna resign or step down. Democommies don’t do that. No matter what. Cause a girl to drown? Meh! Neck brace and your good to go.
She will have to be carried out, feet first.
If they can figure out which end is which.
So now it’s homophobic and racist to say you had an affair with your lesbian lover?
Major problems we never noticed about Chicago....
You mean like the disk jockeys used to say about a new hit song “Number one with a bullet” but for Chicago it means heading to the top of the national murder statistic chart some weekend.
Yeah. Deflect much? All I wanna know is if Lurch kicked her ass.
So she’s gay? Didn’t know that.
Then why haven't you done a damn thing to do that???
The problem isn't a handful of incidents of white cops shooting black suspects. The problem is that black people are being killed in droves by other black people. Why can't a black mayor see that?
Dont ya know the drill, whenever a black commie is accused of ANYTHING its automatically a racist attack
Heck Cuomo murdered over 20,000 elderly people in order to get rich and he isn’t going anywhere so there ya go
Tires of these racists calling other folks racists..PROJECTION! at some point she must acknowledge that she is just a losy mayor, period, not because of the color of her skin but because of her stupidity..
she forgot transspeciesphobia
Is it homophobic or is it racist? Which one wins? All I know is that she is hogging all the ugly
Wow. She played all of her victim cards in one hand.
Liberal twits like Lori are always with the labels. It’s like a sick game of paintball. They slime everyone they disagree with... Always.
It’s become quite sickening and needs to be done away with.
Racism, homophobism, misogyny. When will the incompetent be considered a protected class?
Yeah. A white 'woman' husband. She's racist. Won't marry a black woman
“...disturbing bodycam footage released on Thursday showed Toledo unarmed with his hands up the moment he was shot...”
Hands up...don’t shhhh....
