Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was adamant Monday she'll continue to wear masks in public and urged others to do so. However, the Democrat was busted maskless Thursday while partying at a fine dining restaurant.
The viral video tweeted by Haley Mills Pfaffenberger garnered over 4,000 likes on Twitter and mass outrage over the progressive city leader's captured hypocrisy.
Pfaffenberger said she spotted Lightfoot in the middle of the multi-level riverfront rooftop party at RPM Seafood. She said it appeared that the party was celebrating Lightfoot's inauguration. No one was seen wearing masks. A security team stopped onlookers from taking photographs, Pfaffenberger told The Post Millennial.
Lightfoot at the beginning of the week said she refuses to unmask despite new guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC told the public that masks are not required for vaccinated individuals. The Chicago mayor maintained said that she'll stay woke regardless of science-based guidance.
"I'm gonna continue to wear a mask in public and I'm gonna encourage others to do so," Lightfoot told MSNBC in an interview Monday. "We've got to make sure that people are continuing to follow the public health guidance that has gotten us this far. And masks, I think, are a big and important part of that."
