She should be arrested ASAP FOR THIS! Maria Chappelle-Nadal, a missouri state senator, stated in a now-deleted Facebook post (thank God for screenshots!) that she actually hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated!
She made the comment while exchanging replies with a left-wing “activist”.
This is completely unconscionable and I say again… how is she not in handcuffs as we speak? And how come this is not making it to mainstream media? It’s a pretty big deal if you ask me. Yet they want to get offended by Confederate statues? Give me a flippin’ break!
It is not clear exactly what prompted Chappelle-Nadal’s comment. But it was likely made in response to a discussion about the ongoing controversy over Trump’s comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.
According to KMOX, U.S. Secret Service in St. Louis is looking into Chappelle-Nadal’s post.
State and national politicians called on Chappelle-Nadal to resign over the remarks, but she says she has no plans to do so.
Stephen Webber, the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, called the comments “indefensible.”
“All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America — and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President,” he said.
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said that the comments were “outrageous” and that Chappelle-Nadal “should resign.”
