White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany struck back in a escalating war of words after being called a "Karen" by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, saying she actually is carin' – caring about the lives of people in the streets or Chicago.

"My response is I am very upset about the violence in the streets of her city," McEnany told Fox News' "Watter's World" on Saturday night. "She's focused on words, but instead she should be focused on action."

McEnany rebuked the summer of murder in Chicago as "double digit" numbers of people dying in her city of Chicago for myriad weekends.

"She should be focused on securing her streets," McEnany added to host Jesse Watters. "I understand the truth hurts. 

"The president has written her a letter and offered her help, and she needs to take it because it's inexcusable when children die . . . in Democrat-run city streets of Chicago."

Her comments came in response to Mayor Lightfoot tweeting a term being weighed as anti-feminist hate speech:

"Hey, Karen, watch your mouth." 

McEnany had expressed concern over the lack of media coverage of the Democrat mayor's failings in protecting the streets of Chicago, calling her mayor "Lightweight" to Watters after ripping her as the "derelict mayor of Chicago" who was "doing a very poor job of protecting her streets" in a White House press briefing late this week.
