Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic.
She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service for her comment.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News even 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.
“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated,” Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. “Things have got to change.”
Reporting on Chappelle-Nadal’s comment drew condemnation across social media, including from the Senate Democratic leadership. In a statement, Senate Democratic Caucus leader Sen. Gina Walsh called the comments “unacceptable” and said Chappelle-Nadal “should be be ashamed of herself.”
