Former Occupier and current Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal apologized four days after writing on Facebook that she hopes someone kills President Trump. It might be four days too late because the Democratic Party is calling for her resignation.
She doesn’t want to kill Trump herself, she’s cowardly, she wants someone else to do it.
She dragged God into her well-researched apology as she quoted from the Bible. It was just a “mistake” and none of us are perfect, she said.
Prior to this, she said she didn’t mean she hopes he is assassinated, she was just frustrated.
Her apology came a day after Missouri officials called for her to resign including Senator McCaskill, the governor and the Lt. Governor. More importantly, the Democratic Party called for her to resign.
Her response came a day after the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party said she “should resign”.
“State Senator [Maria] Chappelle-Nadal’s comments are indefensible,” Missouri Democratic Party Chairman Stephen Webber wrote in a statement on Sunday. “All sides need to agree that there is no room for suggestions of political violence in America – and the Missouri Democratic Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President.”
“I believe she should resign,” Webber added.
Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson said he will ask senators to remove Chappelle-Nadal from office if she does not resign by the time lawmakers convene Sept. 13 to consider veto overrides. Parson is the presiding officer of the Senate, though he can only vote to break ties and cannot sponsor legislation or make motions for votes.
“She is no longer fit to serve our state,” he said at a Capitol press conference Friday.
The Missouri Senator who participated in Ferguson riots and encouraged violence, has a history of threatening white people and making anti-America statements. She has also threatened police.
