Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal just proved that tigers never change their stripes. Chappelle-Nadal made national headlines and was censored by her colleagues earlier this year after commenting “I hope Trump is assassinated!” on Facebook.
Even Democrats were outraged by this insane comment from a lawmaker, and several called for her to step down, which she refused to do. She was nevertheless removed from all eight committees that she served on.
Now she is back in the headlines with another distasteful post on social media, comparing President Trump to Adolf Hitler, Fox News reports:

Although she publicly apologized for her first post hoping for a Trump assassination, Chappelle-Nadal doubled down on her Hitler post, saying:
“I still have a First Amendment right, and I still have a family I need to fight for.”
Her post was in response to President Trump’s comments on Puerto Rico. Chappelle-Nadal’s mother is Puerto Rican. The president suggested the island’s government do more for its own recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria.
Perhaps Chappelle-Nadal should crack open a history book. There’s a big difference between helping Puerto Rico as much as possible and then suggesting it’s local government take more responsibility and invading multiple countries and systemically slaughtering millions of people. But hey, in the topsy-turvey world of the Democrats, anything goes!
She has not yet come under fire from Democrats for her bizarre twitter post, but two Republican state representatives called her out:
Having the RIGHT to do something, doesn't mean it's the RIGHT thing to do.

Chappelle-Nadal is right- her speech is protected by the first amendment. However, her hyperbolic comparison does not befit a public official. Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is up for reelection in 2018, and she still has not condemned Chappelle-Nadal’s post. SHARE this out 50,000 times to expose the Democrats and get both Chappelle-Nadal AND McCaskill out of office!
