Rahm Blasts Trump's Comments On Chicago Violence: "Will He Do More Than Talk Or Tweet About It?"

Tyler Durden's picture

In his speech to a joint session of Congress last night, Trump once again took direct aim at the violence in Chicago, saying "In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone –- and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher ... This is not acceptable in our society."


And just to check the facts, per data from HeyJackAss!, in fact 4,379 people were shot last year in Chicago with 800 homicides.

Of course, Trump's repeated references to the violence in Chicago take direct aim at their mayor, Rahm Emanuel, who has had little success reining in the violence plaguing his streets.  Meanwhile, obviously flustered by the persistent mentions of his ineptitude, Emanuel blasted Trump's comments last night asking whether the President "cares enough about violence in our city to do more than talk or tweet about it?" Per ABC News:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel slammed President Trump Tuesday night for his remarks during his joint address to Congress about the Windy City's murder rate.


"We have repeatedly made specific requests of the administration for greater law enforcement integration and resources; a higher priority placed on federal gun prosecutions; and funds restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs programs that have proven to be positive alternatives for our young people,” Emanuel said in a statement following Trump's address. "Because this is so important, I’ll always be ready with this list whenever the President asks."


Emanuel added, "The better question, I’d suggest, is whether the President cares enough about violence in our city to do more than talk or tweet about it."

As we've pointed out before, Chicago has been a frequent Twitter target for Trump with his latest tweet calling out a particularly violent night in the city last month.

"Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago. What is going on there - totally out of control. Chicago needs help!"


Meanwhile, per data from HeyJackAss!, YTD homicides in Chicago have already surpassed 100 for just the first two months of the year.

He is the fucking mayor.  Typical democrat.

Rahm, Trump is going to do something about your problem. He's sending in ICE for starters.

Keyser's picture

And how long have YOU had to do something about the crime problem in Chicago Rahm... Come on, we're waiting... When you live in a glass house, you really shouldn't walk around naked for all the world to see... 

JRobby's picture

Rahm looks like he is a descendant of some sub species that was shunned by societies yet performed some vile, filthy unmentionable service that sooner or later a "citizen" would require and pay dearly for.

The one violent thing Trump should do to help alleviate Chicago's problems would be to have Rahm Emmanuel killed.  The man is an Israeli-First-Irgun-Spawn who is a traitor to America.  Treason has only one just sentence... death.

On the Isreal first thing, you talking about Rahm or Don?

eatthebanksters's picture

Rahm, maybe you should give your police department the authority to carry out their duties like thy used to...when it worked...before you fucking libtards fucked it all up.

Oliver Klozoff's picture

Maybe if that prick would lose the sanctuary city bs, Trump might be willing to listen.

Put your money where the 12 inchers are, your lie hole.

Nemontel's picture

There is almost nothing Trump can do about Chicongo within our current laws.


The problem is not one of policy.


edotabin's picture

Rahm is a shitbag of inexplicably epic proportions. There are no words.  At this point it's safe to say that only the mentally impaired support him. A truly foul individual.

"Will He Do More Than Talk Or Tweet About It?"

Hey, Rahm... that may turn out to be a question you'll hope you never asked.

hey Rahm, you cowardly corrupt little marxist 9-fingered dwarf maggot ,

what do you need Trump for ?  Grow a pair and get the problem fixed yourself...it ain't that fuckin' hard to figure out how.

Dismantle all the libtard gun laws! Allow concealed carry.

Build a wall. Around shitcago.

Just describing the problem is more then Soweeto bin Bama did about it. The people of Chicago should grab Rahm and hang him from the lamp post in front of city hall he is so vile letting them killl each other.

PT's picture

Was that an invite?  That sounded like an invite.  Be careful what you ask for ...


Rahm it up your ass, Rahminator - how many years have you been mayor, and just let things ride on " I don't give a fuck. ", while collecting your paycheck and bullet proof pension plan ?

Go chase some parked cars, asshole.

Trump's making a big deal out of it for a reason. 

1. He wants the Dems to keep losing local and state elections.

2. He's forcing Rahm's hand by offering the feds to "take over" the city.  Rahm is against the feds because he'll lose control/power and look weak beyond belief.  

My money is on Trump winning again.  The violence won't stop, the schools keep sucking and the taxes keep rising.

oh, he wants rahm on record begging, in hi-res video that will be needed when

the media begin accusing der fuehrer of invading the peaceful land of smurfs.

Why? TRUTH is TREASON in OBAMA's (former) EMPIRE of LIES.

GOD BLESS President TRUMP for telling the TRUTH.

Maybe OBAMA can go back to Chicago and fix the MESS he is responsible for creating.

You have been running the city of Chicago into the ground.

I never thought I would get nostalgic for the Daley family but you are such a vile, snake skinned shit peddler.

Look in the fucking mirror.

sheikurbootie's picture

ICE for sure.  These guys must be loving their job now!  Finally!

I heard a few weeks ago that the crime/killings in Chicago are caused primarily by gang violence and a drug war.  It was also reported that the most brutal of the leaders is an illegal Mexican.  Make sense to me that it's a street corner turf war for drug sales.  The Mexican illegal is a sad twist. 

If Trump only does one thing, I'd be satisfied if that one thing was the total removal of illegals and a massive border wall.

In case everyone didn't know....1000 miles of the border have NO wall/fence/barrier.  1000 miles illegals can just walk across unimpeded.

Oliver Klozoff's picture

Here's where reading old westerns comes in handy, read The Light of Western Stars. There will never be a wall along alot of our southern border.

shamus001's picture

Right! Perhaps if the Mayor stops announcing Chicago as a safe haven for Illegal murderers, the numbers might drop a click?

Next, bury that Communist manifesto you run your city by. Start by allowing tax payers to arm themselves and watch a precipitous decline in murder and robbery follow!

Its easy fir wolves to bear their teeth at lambs. But they hesitate when squared off against an Irish Wolfhound, a German Shepherd, Rotweiller ir English Mastiff.

Get it? There need be shepherds amongst the flock to make the murderers think twice.....right now the bad guys OWN YOUR CITY... your just the posterchild for birth control.

Rahm, is this Herr Rahm of the Israeli Defense Force? 

Lynx Dogood's picture

All Rahm does is talk about it. Tweeting adds an extra layer that Rahm is to busy collecting checks to do. Will still do nothing however....

Trump should do nothing - let Emanuel play the fiddle while Chicago burns

Let it Burn its good for the country and the Democratic Party - shows their competency

Hmmmm, the glove is laid down. Seems like he (Ram) is begging for the tanks. Careful there, ya just might get em!

PT's picture

Agree.  Sounds like Trump could interpret Rahm's call as an invite.

post turtle saver's picture

Rahm Emanuel is a real piece of work... he wants all this help but at the same time doesn't want the Justice Dept nosing around in CPD's affairs... half the damn city when polled wanted him to resign... the crime/murder uptick is _all_ on his watch (and Obama's) yet he has the nerve to attempt to tweak Trump's nose about it?

his ass needs to be run out of town, tarred and feathered and mounted backwards... WORST mayor Chicago has ever seen and it's had some real doozies...

I expect nothing less than what we've seen from this spawn of 1950's Jewish paramilitary leftists... fuck this guy sideways with a crowbar, you look up "fifth column" in the dictionary and his smarmy smug mug is there leering back at you...

Hey homo twinkle toes snowflake Rhamn,IT IS YOUR responsibility FIRST, yet you did nothing about it, still aren't, and the Governor must REQUEST the Feds help before they can come in.

And do not act stupid and try and think TRUE Americans do not know that's the 100% gospel.

The reasons for the accelerating murders in ChiRqa:

1- Negroes.

2- Organ harvesting.

TAALR Swift's picture

Those are not the organs you want to be harvesting.

That is typically done in Eastern Europe, to harvest Slavic organs.

Infinite QE's picture

You think they inform the recepient where the organ was harvested from?

SubZeroWins's picture

Exactly. It's almost as if they had a nationwide healthcare system to track a majority of citizens. Who is from Chicago that we know could accomplish such a task? And moreover, is it affordable?
