“Thank God, science is back baby,” she said with her hand on her forehand. The music becomes more upbeat and Lightfoot pats a globe of the Earth, saying “And the Earth is round, not flat.”
At the end of the video, Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady urges residents to wash their hands, wear face coverings, and practice social distancing. “I do love science,” Arwady says.
In a caption along with the video, Lightfoot wrote Biden’s coronavirus task force “ushers in a new day for science and evidence-based policy-making.”
“As a city, we look forward to working together to ensure the health of all Chicagoans,” she wrote.
Asked if the video was a critique of Trump and praise of Biden, Anel Ruiz, a spokesperson for Lightfoot, told CNN Thursday, “It’s praising science and data, and advocating for the importance of formulating policy based on science and data, as we’ve been working to do from day one.”
CNN reached out to the White House for comment Thursday.
