Trump is a threat to the Democrat way of life. Why the health care failures? Politicians are bought by the insurance companies. They don’t want affordable health care. They’re making billions. I have family members who are struggling. The politicians don’t want change. They’re bought!
Democratic Missouri state senator from University City posted, then quickly deleted, a comment on Facebook saying she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
This is the reason why the Missouri Senate is now ready to expel her!
Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson informed a state Democratic lawmaker who threatened President Trump’s life to resign by September 13 or the state Senate will move to expel her.
Parson, a former sheriff who also serves as the president of Missouri’s State Senate, pointed to a section of the Missouri Constitution that relates to penalties for lawmakers guilty of “contempt and disorderly conduct.”

According to The Springfield News Leader, Parson stipulated that Chappelle-Nadal must resign by September, the date of the upcoming veto session, or deal with expulsion from the Senate. (RELATED: Missouri Senator: ‘I Hope Trump Is Assassinated!’)
Missouri Democratic and Republican lawmakers called for her to resign from her seat, including most recently Democratic Missouri Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver.
“I’m not going to do something that I haven’t heard many Republicans do on the air or in private. Anyone who labels anyone or any group of all races unless that is the purpose of the group, I disagree with it. A state senator here in Missouri called for the assassination of Donald Trump,” Cleaver said on Fox News Saturday.
“About 30 seconds after she made the comment, I issued a request for her resignation. She does not deserve to be an elected official in the state that I love–Missouri. She doesn’t deserve to anywhere in this country.”
USA Today reported Missouri Democratic. Sen. Claire McCaskill criticized Chappelle-Nadal, saying, “It’s outrageous. And she should resign.” Missouri Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay also denounced the Facebook post.
Missouri State Senate Democratic leader Gina Walsh called the comment “horrible” and said her behavior has “no place in our caucus.”
The U.S. Secret Service also confirmed that they are now investigating a Facebook post from Sen. Chappelle-Nadal.
Chappelle-Nadal’s comment, referring to President Donald Trump, has since been removed. But Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in response to another commenter before deleting it.
“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated,” Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. “Things have got to change.”
Shame on you Senator! Shame!
What makes you think those are not words of hate? You preach against hate of black people and say Black Lives Matter and you not only have to hate in your heart but are now displaying it publicly?!
You, Senator, should step down IMMEDIATELY. All of us who support the growth of anti-racism in America need you to leave your public post.
The people of your kind, of all color who spew your anti-racism rhetoric yet walk around with hatred and judgment, essentially discriminating against and displaying racism for the racists need to recognize the error of your ways and the damage you are doing. You are a huge factor in the reason why America can not move forward. You scream and fight against racism while living as a racist against racists.
Your behavior and those who behave as you are stopping progress. You are instigating the hate which is fueling the violence in our nation.
She is not fit to hold public office in the USA. Resignation is too good for her. Removal is the only acceptable (IMO) solution. Also, in my opinion, she should be in jail while the investigation is conducted. She typed a post then hit “post”, not an accidental post.
This is behavior at least as bad as what she condemns. She appears to hate as much as the ones she condemns.
