Chicago Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet said Mayor Rahm Emanuel is facing a “loss of trust and confidence of the people in Chicago.”

Wednesday on MSNBC Live with José Díaz-Balart, Sweet explained the Oct. 20, 2014 police shooting of Laquan McDonald and the backlash Emanuel is now facing is the “biggest crisis of his career.” (RELATED: Rahm Emanuel Says He Didn’t Watch Shooting Video To Avoid Answering Reporters’ Questions)

Before Sweet was introduced, a clip was shown of Pastor Cy Fields of Chicago’s New Landmark Missionary Baptist Church saying, “We are not going away Rahm Emanuel. We will be back. We’ll march. We’ll do whatever it takes to have this system changed from the top to the bottom! And that includes you as well.” (RELATED: Rahm Emanuel’s Wife May Kill Him Because Politico’s Mike Allen Shared Their Vacation Plans Publicly [VIDEO])

When asked by host Diaz-Balart, “What does all this mean for Rahm Emanuel?” Sweet insisted, “Biggest crisis of his career. Loss of trust and confidence of the people in Chicago. No obvious, quick way for him to regain it. That’s it in short.”
