Chicago’s Mayor Is At It Again, This Time Dressed As ‘Rona Destroyer’

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot dug into her old bag of tricks for today’s press conference where she showed up dressed as “Corona Destroyer” to go over how the city will handle Halloween. The big news from Lightfoot is that Halloween is on, but the Rona Destroyer wants the ghosts and goblins to stay in groups of six or less.

“The reality is, people are gonna trick-or-treat. So, we’re dealing with that reality. We’re trying to spread it out over the course of the week,” Lightfoot said during her press conference.

“Telling people not to trick-or-treat isn’t realistic. They’re gonna trick-or-treat. Let’s just make sure that we do it in a safe and responsible way in the time of a pandemic.”

The Rona Destroyer is so big on Halloween 2020 that she’s making it a week-long event and plans to celebrate a “Halloweek” kickoff at city hall on October 26.

Lightfoot’s office released eight guidelines she hopes people follow this Halloween season, including “no Haunted Houses.” She’s encouraging trick-or-treaters to wear masks, keep moving and no house parties.

The last stunt we saw Lightfoot pull was when she recruited the “Dreadhead Cowboy” to get the word out about filling out the Census. The cowboy took his task a little bit to the extreme by riding his horse, NuNu, seven miles down the Dan Ryan Expressway, causing severe injuries. The horse is said to be improving after authorities said the animal faced being put down due to its injuries. The horse will never be ridden again, authorities said.

Rona Destroyer, who assumed office in 2019, has three years remaining on her term. The Chicago Police Department reported Thursday the city had 81 homicides in September, the most for September since 1993. There were 309 shooting incidents and 400 victims to go along with the 81 deaths. Homicides in 2020 are up 50% compared to 2019 and shootings are at a 51% increase year-over-year.

  1. Beetlejuice! That’s awesome! I know, I know…Meanies and bullies…Let’s not forget how much blood this mayor has on her hands. Nothing is off the table when it comes to her. You reap what you so.

  2. I’m sure the Chicago Police officers working 12 hour shifts and having their holidays cancelled will have a nice little chuckle. Just listening to people who live there and know what’s going on…the city is doomed. Its grand skyline won’t save it…those buildings will be half empty.
