In 1995, Chicago experienced a massive heatwave that killed 700 people.
The incident was a naturally-occurring weather phenomenon.
Eric Klinenberg writes in Slate:
But heat waves kill more people in the United States than all of the other so-called natural disasters combined. More than 400 Americans die from heat-related illnesses in a typical year. Annual mortality from tornadoes, earthquakes, and floods together is under 200.

Chicago's 1995 heat wave, which killed 700 people, singled out those who live alone, are bedridden and need assistance, or lack social supports.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
And who was the president in 1995? Bill Clinton. As much as I have Googled and MetaCrawler'd this story, I can't seem to find one article laying the blame for these 700 deaths at the feet of Chicago's mayor, Illinois' governor, nor the President and the federal goverment.
What's the difference now, you ask? The MSM plus a Republican president.
There,...I said it. Plain and simple, folks, leftist bias in its truest form.
