Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:
Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated.
The comment 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.
