Missouri Lawmaker Who ‘Hoped’ For Trump’s Assassination Reprimanded

Missouri’s Republican-led Senate on Wednesday formally reprimanded a Democratic colleague for a Facebook post hoping for President Donald Trump’s assassination while the House referred to an ethics panel a complaint about a Republican’s post calling for a Confederate monument opponent to be hung from a tree.

The differing legislative actions came in response to comments posted last month by Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal and Republican Rep. Warren Love amid a nationwide controversy over Confederate monuments and white nationalist rallies.

Numerous top Republican and Democratic officials in Missouri have called upon Chappelle-Nadal to resign after she wrote “I hope Trump is assassinated!” on her personal Facebook page and later deleted it. She has said the remark was made in frustration over Trump’s response to a white nationalist rally in Virginia that descended into violence.

    She had better be careful what she wishes for, it just might happen to her when she least expects it.

    Had she been (1) a Republican and (2) white, she would have been ousted by now. The democrats were (rightly) upset for the Rep who appeared to advocate hanging vandals, but did not seem nearly as put upon by a person calling for the assassination of the sitting President. Lefties, for the past 8 years, screamed to the heavens if any spoke about the policies of the President, yet now seem more than accepting of these kind of remark. From has been music “stars” to unfunny “comediennes” , from racists sportscasters to racists politicians, Democrats are not condemning this type of hate speech as they did NOT accept so much less from Conservatives when Obama was President.

    Discipline and self control are parts of personal responsibility. If you have neither you should not be a leader of the commonwealth in your state or this country. I know they don’t teach this in schools anymore but when our political leaders display such bad behavior they should be penalized to make an example to the younger generations what will happen if they follow the same path. This should be a teachable moment.
