Missouri Senator “…hopes Trump is assassinated…”,Instantly regrets Facebook Post
‘I hope Trump is assassinated,’ Missouri lawmaker writes, and quickly regrets
I understand that people are upset. I understand that the country is in turmoil, fueled and force fed by the socio-political agenda driven main stream media. Which is causing a lot of people to do a lot of REALLY stupid things. Take this lady for example.
“A Democratic Missouri state senator from University City posted, then quickly deleted, a comment on Facebook saying she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated.
As a result of Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s comment, the U.S. Secret Service’s St. Louis field office is investigating and both Sen. Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party have called on her to resign.
Chappelle-Nadal told The Star she posted the comment out of frustration with the “trauma and despair” the president is causing with his statements about the events in Charlottesville, Va.
“The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she told The Star. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate.”
Chappelle-Nadal posted the comment on her personal Facebook page, which is not open to the public.
“On my personal Facebook, I put up a statement saying, ‘I really hate Trump. He’s causing trauma and nightmares.’ That was my original post,” she said. “A whole bunch of people responded to that.”
Later in the thread, in response to another commenter, she wrote: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
She later deleted the comment.
Her Facebook comment, which was first reported by a conservative radio host in St. Louis, was condemned by Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, a St. Louis County Democrat.
“Promoting, supporting or suggesting violence against anyone, especially our elected leaders, is never acceptable,” Walsh said in a statement. “There is too much rancor and hate in today’s political discourse, and Sen. Chappelle-Nadal should be ashamed of herself for adding her voice to this toxic environment.”
McCaskill, a Democrat, released a statement on Chappelle-Nadal’s comment, saying ‘I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign.’ ” (Read More)
Our Country is at a turning point. One direction leads to destruction. The other leads to healing. Everyone needs to stop. Breathe. Stop listening to the media outlets and actually have a calm civil discussion on how to get back on track. This is the one thing that the media doesn’t want.
Because with all the hatred and bile the spew forth, it drives up their ratings. Make them millions and millions of dollars.
