Despite the hundreds of years of American history that tells us we need to respect the office of president, even if we don’t respect the president, liberals have completely disregarded that because they REALLY don’t like this President. Some are falling back on the “well, he didn’t win the popular vote.” Some are saying that he is doing a bad job, so he should be impeached. Some just don’t like his hair.
Apparently, just any old excuse to bash on our Commander in Chief will do, since all bets are off now that he had the audacity to beat Hillary out for the Oval Office. The lack of disrespect has led to the Secret Service having their work cut out for them. Actors, comedians and now even politicians think it’s open season on the President and they’re getting bolder by the minute.
One Democrat from Missouri has gone way too far though. This state representative had the gall to actually come out and say that she hoped the President would be assassinated. She attempted to take it down immediately after, but of course, the internet kept a copy, and now she’s in some pretty deep trouble.
The Daily Caller reported on her now infamous Facebook post:
“A Missouri state senator said in a now-deleted Facebook post that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged on Thursday that she wrote a post which read: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
She made the comment in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.

Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to a reporter with St. Louis TV station KMOX that she posted the comment.
‘I put something up on my personal Facebook page and it has now been deleted,’ she said.

Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, represents a district in a St. Louis suburb.
It is not clear exactly what prompted Chappelle-Nadal’s comment. But it was likely made in response to a discussion about the ongoing controversy over Trump’s comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.
According to KMOX, U.S. Secret Service in St. Louis is looking into Chappelle-Nadal’s post.”
You’d think that something like that would make a person want to slink off into obscurity, but apparently not. This isn’t even an isolated incident. This racist state politician has had other issues with her integrity. In one case, she tried to bully a police chief into shutting down a highway so protesters could be safer while they slowed down all the normal, hardworking people going about their day. It ended with the police chief outing her methods, and she responded by keeping it classy and just flat-out calling him a liar.
If Chappelle-Nadal hadn’t made her violent and over the top comments, we wouldn’t even be paying attention to her right now, but thanks to her little stunt, the eyes of the nation are on her corrupt and unacceptable career, and the heat is on. Nadal might think that what she did falls under freedom of speech, but the U.S. Government has a different view of it.
Her reward for the offending comments is to have to fight not only against the Republicans but to be disowned by her own party (and rightly so). She effectively ended her career in politics with that one ill-considered threat. Hopefully, this serves as a warning to all those who think that it’s cool to loudly object to the President. Exercising your right to rally, or disagree or support those who you agree with your personal beliefs is one thing. Making threats against the President is another.
Here’s more from the St. Louis Post – Dispatch on the mayhem that Chappelle-Nadal is causing with her refusal to resign:
“Some of Missouri’s highest-ranking officials delivered on Friday an ultimatum to state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal: Resign or be removed from office.
Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican, issued the first warning just before noon in a series of tweets blasting Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, for a comment Thursday on Facebook in which she said “I hope Trump is assassinated!” She quickly deleted the post.
Condemnation on Thursday was swift, with both Democrats and Republicans calling on the senator from University City to resign. But Chappelle-Nadal insisted she would not.
On Friday, Greitens said this in his tweets: ‘Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign. Her response: ‘Hell no.’ 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.’
Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, piled on in a noon news conference, delivering the same ultimatum.
‘I’m calling on Sen. Chappelle-Nadal to do the right thing and resign from her office,’ Parson said. ‘However, if she does not do so by veto session, I will, in my position as president of the Missouri Senate, immediately seek the expulsion pursuant to Article III Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.’
He said that he would seek Attorney General Josh Hawley’s opinion on the applicability of the constitutional provision and that he would ask senators to initiate Chappelle-Nadal’s removal.
The Secret Service said Thursday that it was investigating. Threatening the president is a federal crime.
Two of the highest-ranking Senate Republicans said Friday afternoon in statements that they would employ rarely used parliamentary tools to expel Chappelle-Nadal if need be.
‘We are preparing for options afforded in the Missouri Constitution and the Senate Rules if she continues to defy the public outcry and not resign,’ Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, said in a statement.
‘The process of expulsion is a significant, rarely used step that should not be taken lightly,’ said Majority Floor Leader Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City. ‘We are researching the detailed steps involved in the expulsion process and will be prepared to move forward as necessary.’
Chappelle-Nadal was defiant Thursday in several interviews in which she refused the calls to resign. She said she wrote the five-word Facebook comment because of her anger over President Donald Trump’s response to violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend.
On her Twitter profile Friday, she posted a link to a website, IStandWithMaria.com, asking supporters to add their name to a list.
Chappelle-Nadal told the Post-Dispatch she met with the Secret Service on Thursday and explained to them that she had made a mistake.
‘I made sure it was clear to them that the anger I experienced was related to the trauma my constituents are going through,” said Chappelle-Nadal, whose district includes Ferguson, a landfill linked to nuclear contamination and low-performing school districts.
Chappelle-Nadal said Greitens and Parson were trying to divert attention away from Trump and his controversial statements about Charlottesville.
Chappelle-Nadal said she had no intention of resigning.”
