Hey Mayor Lightfoot, your mic is live, ma'am...

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was on a Zoom, Chicago city council meeting Wednesday...and didn't know her mic was on, or simply didn't care.

During this portion of the meeting, the mayor spoke after an alderman finishing talking about inclusivity. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot followed that up with..."You gotta be f****** kidding me."

Later on at a press conference, Mayor Lightfoot tried to clear the air with this comment:

“Sorry to disappoint the Twitter trolls, but my comment had nothing to do with anything that was actually going on with City Council." - Mayor Lori Lightfoot
Here is the video:

This isn't the first time the Mayor of Chicago was caught on a hot mic, saying what she feels. During another city council meeting she referred to the #2 man in the local Fraternal Order of Police as a "clown."

Is this the mayor speaking her mind? Is she calling it like she sees it? Or is the Mayor of Chicago a little too full of herself and thinks she can do AND SAY whatever she wants?

Imagine the outrage locally if Mayor McNamara did something like this! I don't think Tom knows curse words to be honest, he's 100% more composed than this.

Kids can't look up to pro athletes, Hollywood, and our political choices wouldn't be good babysitters either. Mom and dad, it's all up to you. Way to go, mayor!
