What in the hell.
Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot decided to wear a superhero costume during a Halloween-themed press conference on Thursday.
She said that she was dressed up as "Rona Destroyer".
Lightfoot entered a City Hall news conference to spooky music with a plastic pale filled with candy she distributed to those in attendance.
She was wearing a black eye mask, a red cape emblazoned with the words “Rona Destroyer,” as in coronavirus, and a giant chest board that featured Clorox disinfectant wipes. Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady was wearing a blue “Rona Destroyer” cape with a hand sanitizer chest board.
The celebration City Hall calls “Halloweek” will begin Monday, Oct. 26.
Trick-or-treating can start then and continue through Halloween, which falls on a Saturday this year.
Groups going door-to-door are asked to “keep it small” — to groups of six or fewer, preferably in their own “household bubble” — and “keep it moving.”
