Lightfoot lambasted on social media for allowing security detail to park in bike lane while she buys doughnuts

Mayor Lori Lightfoot is taking a beating on social media — from cycling enthusiasts and their City Council champions — for allowing her bodyguard detail and security tail car to park both SUVs in a bike lane so she could run into a North Side doughnut shop.

“Cycling enthusiasts”? Honey, I’m just trying to get to work. I’m enthusiastic about not dying.

I'm not a "cycling enthusiast," I'm a person getting to & from work on a bike. And my husband & I really prefer that I do so without getting injured or killed by a driver.

Not a "cycling enthusiast," just taking the kids to school and getting groceries and hoping my family isn't killed. https://t.co/​8dPlg8Zq7S

It's amazing how upset people got because she parked in a bike lane they should be more upset about all the murders and crime in the city of Chicago and the high taxes I think people have their priorities wrong in this city

Both a “cycling enthusiast” and a citizen who wants to live safely and efficiently in dense space without the constant threat of traffic violence threatening my kiddos https://t.co/​bpEBT03QdI

Lori lightfoot is a tone deaf, socially inept, foul mouthed bully who needs to pack her bags and leave. She's damaged the city more than the last 3 mayors combined.
