In a now-deleted Facebook post, a Missouri state senator said that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated. Maria Chappelle-Nadal admitted on Thursday that she did write a post calling for Trump’s assassination during a comment exchange with a left-wing activist.
A reporter with a St. Louis TV station KMOX confirmed that Chappelle-Nadal made the statement after she admitted the following to them:
“I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been deleted.”
The Democratic senator represents a district in St. Louis and hasn’t made any large plays that have gotten her noticed yet. It’s not entirely clear why she posted such a statement, but it’s likely it only had to do with that exact post and was fueled by the recent events in Charlottesville, VA.
