(UnitedVoice.com) – On Thursday, a war of words heated up between Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. It started when McEnany pointed out the violence on Chicago’s streets, and called Lightfoot a “derelict” mayor.
McEnany explained how the mayor wasn’t solving the city’s gun violence problem that’s killing people every weekend. In response, Lightfoot tweeted a racially derogatory remark on Twitter, calling McEnany a “Karen.”
Hey, Karen. Watch your mouth. pic.twitter.com/zhjRyokKD5

The term “Karen” erupted on social media a few years ago. It was initially a term to describe white women who act entitled in public.
It has morphed into a way to negatively name any middle-aged white woman who is behaving racist, inappropriate, rude, or entitled.
Over the last few weeks, President Trump has been shining a spotlight on the problems in Chicago. Last week, he sent Lightfoot a letter and told her to solve the violence problem before he’s forced to do it for her.
On Wednesday, Trump said his administration is dealing with the MS-13 gangs and the far-left leaders in major cities are failing in their jobs because they don’t know what they’re doing.
