Dem Senator to Possibly be Expelled: ‘I Hope Trump is Assassinated’

Democratic Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal could be finding herself expelled, as she rightly should be.

The disrespectful senator said that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated. Whether you like the president or not, you absolutely do no advocate his murder. Especially as a member of the Senate!

Trending: Trump Approval Rating Soars Past Obama’s Dampening on Democrat ‘Blue Wave’

Republican Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is pushing for Nadal to resign, and if she refuses, for the Senate to kick her out.

Greitens said, “Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign,” he continued,  “… Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize—twice. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.”

Fox News reports: 

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Lt. Gov. Mike Parson backed the call, saying if she does not resign before an upcoming September session, he will seek her expulsion in his capacity as state Senate president.

The Senate could do so with a two-thirds vote.

Chappelle-Nadal made the original comment, since deleted, on Facebook.

“I hope Trump is assassinated!” she wrote.

Chappelle-Nadal eventually removed the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter. In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.

“I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.”

The Secret Service told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch it is investigating Chapelle-Nadal’s post.
