Chicago Ain't F#@king Around

[Content Note: Bigotry.]

A group of Chicago aldermen have introduced an ordinance that would rescind Donald Trump's honorary plaza in the city:
[A]t a City Council meeting Wednesday, Ald. Brendan Reilly, 42nd, introduced an ordinance that would strip Trump's name from the small plaza in front of his River North hotel on Wabash Avenue.

The move would punish Trump for "painting a distorted caricature of Chicago" on the campaign trail and for "comparing our great city to a decimated, war-torn country," said Reilly, in whose ward the Trump Tower stands.

He was backed by eight other aldermen who agreed with Reilly's statement that "honorary street signs are meant to honor special Chicagoans who've made a positive contribution to our city."

The proposed ordinance also states that Trump has run a "hateful, racist campaign against immigrants and minorities," and accuses him of a "complete disregard for civil liberties dating back to the 1970s."

It could take about a month to be enacted, Reilly said, adding that "there are millions of people who live and work here who are very proud of our city, and given his actions in recent months, he doesn't warrant an honorary street sign."
Damn. You shouldn't have messed with the Windy City, Donzo.

Especially not after you built that hideous monstrosity on the riverfront and slapped your name on it, which everyone hates so much you can't even rent out the prime retail space on the ground floor. Loser.
