Only after numerous calls for her resignation and condemnation from within her own party, Missouri Democrat state senator in Missouri on Sunday finally admitted — three days later — that she made a mistake for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated by someone and offered an apology to the President and his family.
Maria Chappelle-Nadal, who has strong ties to the Communist Party USA and was a supporter of Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign, speaking at the Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Missouri, home of the phony “hands up, don’t shoot” Michael Brown narrative that actually did not happen, said that she had just listened to a sermon entitled “I stand accused,” and admitted that she “made a mistake” while referring to herself as a “child of God” and a “servant.”
“President Trump I apologize to you and your family,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “I also apologize to all the people in Missouri. And I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made.”
In a Facebook comment that has since been deleted, Chappelle-Nadal wrote, “I hope Trump is assassinated.” Earlier, leftist Maria Chappelle-Nadal had refused to apologize and has stated that she will not resign from her post, as Missouri Governor Eric Greitens pointed out:
If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.

“I made a mistake and I’m owning up to it,” she said, three days after publicly hoping that the President of the United States would be murdered. “I’m not ever going to make a mistake like that again. I have learned my lesson. My judge and my jury is my Lord,” she explained before walking away from the podium to boisterous applause.
The Secret Service in St. Louis said they were investigating the matter, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
