You had to know a union boss Donald Trump actually likes wouldn’t last long in the Windy City.
Sure enough, opponents are going through several years worth of social media posts to dig up dirt on him.
And Chicago doubled down on efforts to ditch this police union rep who refuses to back down.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 President, John Catanzara, said the city has created an environment reminiscent of the Hunger Games to force police officers to get the jab.
His snark and regular threats to run as Mayor has been tying officials in the blue city in knots for months.
They got a judge to shut down Catanzara from commenting on social media to keep him from publicly “pressuring” officers to defy the city’s vaccination order last month.
Now he’s quit the force in the middle of a termination hearing, but he’s still in charge of the union.
On Monday, the disciplinary hearing started by digging through Catanzara’s fiery social media posts dating back to 2016.
Throughout the hearing he remained unapologetic saying, “I don’t deny that the language used would be categorized as crass or vulgar to many people, but if that was a fireable offense, our Mayor would be fired.”
After the first day of scheduled grilling he announced he would resign telling reporters, “This has all been a farce from the get-go.”
Later he told reporters, “There was never a possibility under God’s green earth that I was ever going to give this Mayor the ability to utter the words, ‘I fired him.’”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Catanzara have been butting heads for quite a while.
No doubt, the far-left Mayor was furious when Donald Trump sent out a Tweet congratulating Catanzara when he first won his position in the union with 55% of the vote.
