The Secret Service is now looking into threats that a Democratic state senator from Missouri posted on Facebook. State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was responding to a comment, saying she hopes President Trump gets assassinated.
She has since deleted her Facebook comment.
Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star she made the comments out of frustration with the 'trauma and despair' caused by Trump's remarks after the violent clashes in Charlottesville.
The way I responded this morning was wrong, she added. Im frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. Hes causing hate."
Both Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party have demanded that Chappelle-Nadal resign.
In another interview, Chappelle-Nadal said she will not apologize for her statements:
It was inappropriate, I've said that three times now, she said. No, when the president apologizes for what he says, I'll apologize. After she highlighted that it was posted on her personal social media, she reiterated how she will not apologize.
Chappelle-Nadal was referring to Trump's assertion that there good people on both sides and how there was blame on both sides. During an abrasive press conference, he also attacked what he called the alt-left.
What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right? Trump asked. "Do they have any assemblage of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. That was a horrible, horrible day.
WHY is she still in office?
Says she won’t resign.
This would be a GREAT ad for EVERY Conservative running next year!!
Perhps the dems letting her stay on would be even BETTER for us.
Besides, the SS is saying the situation in which it was said and blah blah blah would determine if it’s a crime.
I dont get that.
But is it a crime to say you HOPE the president is killed?
It’s REPULSIVE, but is it a crime?
If it was a Republican they would have been shamed into resigning by now. But Democrats have no shame.
Missouri Democrats, in a dog and pony show, are asking her to resign.
What is trump supposed to apologize for? His remarks were completely appropriate.
Thanks for posting that.
I can’t tell you how much I agree with you!
She needs to apologize some more(and resign);the president does NOT!
What a brainless twat - it’s all Trump’s fault because he made her hate him?
Give her a 2 week all expenses paid vacation to GITMO
Sounds like a hate crime. Bus I guess hate speech does not apply when it is spewed by sub humans like this senator. I seriously have to wonder how someone like that is even able to get elected. It speaks poorly of the voters. Of course I also wonder about the sanity of republicans in Arizona who continue to send a brain doner like McCain back to Washington.
I just came here looking for a place to post that.
MORE than arrest her... Perp walk her, question her and her friend, and her friend’s cousin, and any of her associates. Try her and send her to prison.
And, at every step in the process, I expect to read Tweets from DJT.
Make an example of her.
Arrest the BLM and antifaschistische anarchists. Bring these treasonous scoundrels to JUSTICE.
Enforce the Law, Mr. President! It is what we expect you to do. It is your job!
Expel? They’re probably throwing parties for her and giving her campaign money.
Meanwhile, from TWO DAYS before!...
What better way to smoke em out
So this is how the “Tolerant Left Wing Democrats” relate to the opposition. It seems the Democrats want, now are trying to start a Civil War all because they lost an election. This is how it’s going to be in this country from now on. No more elections, just shootings, killings and assassinations. The Left Wing is setting the standard for US political now
