CHICAGO — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, an out lesbian, has become an meme phenomenon with her actions to encourage and enforce social distancing in the city. And she seems to be embracing it.
The Chicago Mayor’s Office released a series of videos on Tuesday featuring Lightfoot in a number of lighthearted situations, going against her no-nonsense reputation.
The memes went viral after Lightfoot closed the lakefront in response to people flooding park areas despite social distancing guidelines. She actually likes them. In fact, according to Block Club Chicago reported that she’s acted out a few of the memes at home.
