WHAT CHANGED? Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Now Wants Restaurants And Bars To Reopen As Soon As Possible

Talk about a curious case of timing.

Now that Joe Biden is about to be sworn in as president and the Democrats will control both chambers of Congress, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot suddenly wants bars and restaurants to reopen as quickly as possible.

Must be a coincidence. There’s really no other logical explanation.

The Blaze reports:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot wants bars, restaurants to reopen for indoor service ‘as quickly as possible’

Far-left Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she wants bars and restaurants to reopen for indoor service “as quickly as possible,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

“I am very, very focused on getting our restaurants reopened. If we look at the various criteria that the state has set, we are meeting most if not all of those,” Lightfoot said Thursday, the paper reported, adding that she said she would discuss the matter with Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker. “But I want to get our restaurants and our bars reopened as quickly as possible.”

What are the details?

The Tribune said it’s Pritzker call regarding when bars and restaurants can reopen for indoor service — and while the city can set stricter rules, it can’t enact less-stringent rules.

Lightfoot added that restaurants are highly regulated, get inspections, and have gone “above and beyond” to use indoor “mitigation controls,” the paper noted.

“They are going to be one of the safer places,” she said, according the Tribune.

We still have the pandemic, so what changed?

Again, it’s probably all just a coincidence. Right?
