It is a horrible time we are living in at the moment. There is terrorist attacks all across Europe and the western world. You would expect any rational politician to get behind the president at this time to PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Well Democratic State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal did the complete opposite.
She said, in a Facebook comment on Thursday, that she hoped that the President was assassination. Her comment was deleted pretty fast, but other users saved a screenshot while it was still up:

Maria Chappelle-Nadal admitted to posting the hate filled comment in an interview with St. Louis Post-Dispatch. She added:
“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated. Things have got to change.”
Democrats across the country were not sympathetic and called for her resignation. US Senator Claire Mccaskill said:
“I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”
US Rep. William Lacy Clay said:
“(C)alling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime. . . . (She is) an embarrassment to our state. She should resign immediately.”
Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber said:
“The…Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign.”
Missouri Senate Democratic Caucus leader Senator Gina Walsh said:
“(She) should be ashamed of herself for adding her voice to this toxic environment.”
You know you messed up when even Democrats are saying you have gone to far.
Despite Democrats and Republicans all across the country urging her to resign, she said:
“I am not resigning . . . What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now.”
Kristina Schmidt, a special agent in charge of the Secret Service office in St. Louis said that the Service was “looking into this.” and that the allegations of alleged assassination or incitement to assassinate where VERY serious.
This is what politics has come to at the moment. We have ELECTED officials publicly calling for the assassination of our GREAT President. It’s disgusting. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is an American terrorist, a true enemy of the people. Imagine if a Republican Senator had called for Obama’s assignation.
We know the MSM isn’t going to advertise this story, so that’s why we’re asking you to SHARE SHARE SHARE.
