“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski slammed Ivanka Trump on Wednesday’s show. Ivanka tweeted about the recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, and asked that people not “overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year.” Ivanka also tweeted statistics about the violence in Chicago she referenced, which some felt were misleading:
Chicago mayor, Lori Lightfoot, objected to the wording of the tweet, which she felt implied the “7 dead and 52 wounded” were all part of one incident rather than a number of occurrences.
In a press conference on Tuesday, per CNN, Lightfoot said: “It wasn’t a playground, it was a park. It wasn’t seven dead. It wasn’t 52 wounded in one incident, which is what this suggests. And it’s misleading. It’s important when we’re talking about people’s lives to actually get the facts correct, which one can easily do if you actually cared about getting it right.”
