‘This can’t be real’: Lori Lightfoot promos at-home vaccinations with a dirty couch and stacks of cash

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot unveiled the latest brazen attempt to entice people to get the COVID-19 vaccine, sparking eye rolls and criticism on social media.

The Democrat mayor posted a bizarre photo of the latest stunt to outright bribe residents into getting vaccinated by booking an at-home appointment with the city’s Department of Health.

Declaring “this stack could be yours” in a caption to the photo, Lightfoot was seen standing with cash on the floor that spelled out, “Get Vax’d” on Twitter this week as a way to promote Chicago’s new vaccine campaign.

Those calling to make an at-home vaccine appointment will be entered into a raffle to win the cash which was made up of $20 bills, a $5 bill, and a $1 bill used for the apostrophe.

“The message is clear. Get vaccinated from the comfort of your home and this stack could be yours,” Lightfoot’s post read.

The post sparked immediate mockery on Twitter.

Many were reminded of Lightfoot’s past stunts as mayor.

And plenty of Twitter users were just more distracted by the condition of the couch in the background.
