You tell em boss! In fact I think the convention should be held in Caracas. Then they can recruit the next wave of "new friends" for the Windy City.
For those of you who aren't experts in Geography, Caracas is the largest city in Venequala. With me yet? Need I connect all the dots.
As a matter of fact, I think Father Pfleger could do Chicago a favor and move to Caracas himself. They really need an American jackass to help ease their suffering.
Rev. Michael Pfleger wants Chicago to back out of hosting the Democratic National Convention unless the city gets more federal funding to combat homelessness.

Why it matters: The St. Sabina pastor and activist is the second high-profile leader in recent weeks to suggest Chicago should pass on its DNC obligations if more federal resources aren't provided to address the city's housing crisis.
Driving the news: Pfleger plans to bring these demands to the doors of the Union League Club next week, when DNC 2024 Host Committee leader Christy George will be speaking.
What they're saying: "We have billions of dollars for Ukraine and Israel but we don't have billions of dollars … to house Americans who are homeless here, as well as those coming from other countries seeking asylum," Pfleger told WGN recently.
State Rep. Kam Buckner laid out a similar argument in a recent Tribune op-ed.
The other side: "These are two separate dynamics," Mayor Brandon Johnson told Axios during a recent press conference. "Whether you have the DNC coming to your city or not, you have just as much of a right to the federal funds."
