Maria Chappelle-Nadal Apologizes After Controversial Facebook Comment

A Missouri Democratic State lawmaker has reportedly said on Facebook  “I hope Trump is assassinated!” She was obviously referring to the President of the United States. The lawmaker's name is  Maria Chappelle-Nadal and she's a Missouri Democrat State Sen.

The comment is now deleted, however as most of us know on the internet, nothing is truly ever deleted.  

Maria Chappelle-Nadal did in fact, acknowledge that what she did was wrong.

She was replying to someone who had posted about a relative being on Trump's secret service and seemed to be rather frustrated with the entire thing.

The person she replied to had reportedly written: "I'll probably get a visit from the Secret Service smdh." and Chappelle apparently decided to write after that: "No. I will. I hope Trump is assassinated!"

She said to The Kansas City Star "The way I responded this morning was wrong."

"Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He's causing hate." She said.

A lot of people really want her to resign after an incident like this. Despite her not really meaning her statement on Facebook, a lot of people want her to step down from office. Even people who are Democrats and they're in the same party as her.

Chappelle does not want to step down and when asked about stepping down she had reportedly said: "Hell, no!"

chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party, Stephen Webber said: “State Sen. Chappelle-Nadal’s comments are indefensible,” “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.”

It has even been reported that the secret service is now investigating this particular incident.

This is not something that should be taken lightly. Some people are calling it political violence because of what the statement means. We must, however, note her response. As she said she did not mean it and she did in fact, acknowledge that what she said was wrong. It's certainly something everyone can learn from.
