Democrats Turn Against State Senator Who Called For Trump Assassination

In a surprising move, some of Missouri’s top Democrats, including Claire McCaskill, did something Democrats rarely do.

They broke ranks and turned against a Democrat official in public.

What could have been so bad to make these party loyalists turn on their own?

She called for the assassination of the president.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported:

With five written words Thursday morning, one of Missouri’s most controversial state lawmakers spawned a U.S. Secret Service investigation, potentially endangered her own political career — and flung St. Louis squarely into the middle of America’s raging racial-political debate in the wake of the unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

“I hope Trump is assassinated!” Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, wrote during a morning Facebook exchange, referring to Republican President Donald Trump.

She quickly deleted her post, but not quickly enough. By mid-afternoon, the political verdicts of her own party were rolling in:

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.: “I condemn it. It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”

U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis: “(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: “The . . . Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign.”

Chappelle-Nadal also made headlines during the Ferguson debacle.

FOX News reported:

A Missouri state senator who has made controversial comments on social media following the shooting death in Ferguson of Michael Brown, an unarmed black man who was killed by a white police officer, is facing renewed criticism over her recent remark apparently about “white privilege.”

State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal apparently said on Twitter: “LET ME BE CLEAR. When you exercise your #WhitePrivilege, don’t think I’m not going to remember. I will use it for the future. Uncomfortable?”

There will be a lot of people in Missouri very glad to see her out of office.
