Missouri Senator Apologizes for FB Post About Trump Assassination

A Democrat senator hoped out loud for Trump’s assassination and may pay the price

"I am calling on you to exercise your authority as Majority Floor Leader to begin the process for calling a special session, with the objective of expelling Senator Chappelle-Nadal from the Missouri Senate", the letter reads.

The St. Louis area lawmaker posted a comment to facebook last week saying "I hope Trump is assassinated!".

Chappelle-Nadal shocked even the most strident Democrats with her post, which was quickly deleted, but eventually went viral when a screenshot was shared on Twitter.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson - both Republicans - said she should resign in the wake of the post, but Chappelle-Nadal said she has no plans on doing so.

Chappelle-Nadal has said that she has no intentions of resigning, and while threatening a president is a federal crime, the investigation is still underway.

Greitens is among the Republicans and Democrats in Missouri calling for Chappelle-Nadal to step down.

At no time did Chappelle-Nadal indicate that she would bow to growing pressure for her to step down due to the nature of her social media post. This is very telling about Chappelle-Nadal's lack of character, in acting as if her statements were justified. "And I'm not ever going to make a mistake like that again".


And it matters not that on Sunday she expressed her regret directly to the Trumps. "Do you think she was honest - she waited four days to apologize after she said she wouldn't - and do you think she needs to step down?" "But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I'm not going to shy away from that".

She told the St. Louis Dispatch that she doesn't actually want the president to be harmed.

"I hope Trump is assassinated!". "It's outrageous. And she should resign".

It is unclear how the process to unseat Chappelle-Nadal would work. Meanwhile, it is not only Trump who has been called to explain about comments that have a relation to the tragic event.

"You know, when there's undisputed evidence that there's been some wrongdoing by an elected official, you know, the denouncing of the person should be quick", she continued.

"So, Ms. Chappelle-Nadal, please do us a favor". As she spoke on Sunday, some of those supporters stood behind her wielding a sign that read: "We stand with Sen".
