In what world is this acceptable?

In a now deleted social media post, lawmaker Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D) responded to a comment by saying "I hope Trump is assassinated!" A spokesperson for the St. Louis Field Office of the Secret Service, Cathy Milhoan, said, "The Secret Service investigates all threats against the President, Vice President, and other protectees, whether they be direct, implied or comments in passing".

"On my personal Facebook, I put up a statement saying, 'I really hate Trump", said Chappelle-Nadal.

He says it's all in the wording of her post where she says "I hope Trump is assassinated". Maria Chappelle-Nadal to resign from her position, the Post-Dispatch reported. "As long as I have a voice, I'm going to talk about the damage (Trump) is creating in this nation". "I believe they should", Greitens said in a written statement. "Absolutely", she told the AP.

She said that people are becoming increasingly scared of white supremacists.

We, as constituents and community members and people who feel the same frustration with our current political landscape stand with Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other so-called civil rights groups rioted and destroyed Ferguson, a city she represents in the Missouri Senate.


"I refuse to resign for exercising my First Amendment rights, even though what I said was wrong", she said. "(C) alling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime.

Though the senator quickly deleted the comment, an image of the statement has floated, catching the attention of the Secret Service and prompting calls for her to step down. Chapelle-Nadal, despite regretting calling for Trump's assassination, insists she's speaking out for the voiceless in Missouri who are suffering under the blatant white nationalism that this presidency is fomenting.

And State Rep. Joshua Peters - a fellow democrat who has clashed with Nadal before - wrote a letter to the Missouri Senate leadership calling for an ethics investigation.

"I condemn it. It's outrageous". A screenshot of the comment was posted to Twitter by KMOX's Mark Reardon. The University City Democrat has so far resisted numerous bipartisan calls for her resignation after the comment was posted and later deleted Thursday. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her.

If there are two things radical liberals like Chappelle-Nadal are good at, it's dividing people and repeating the same outlandish fabrications of the truth until the sheeple believe them.

Chappelle-Nadal's defiance reached a fever pitch, when she named the specific conditions Trump would have to meet in order to earn an apology from her. "When the president apologizes for what he says, I'll apologize".
