The Missouri State Senator who openly called for President Trump’s assassination on social media has finally apologized, saying she was sorry for the “mistake” she made but refuses to step-down from her position, reports Fox News.
“President Trump, I apologize to you and your family,” said Maria Chappelle-Nadal during a church event in Ferguson, Missouri. “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.”
“I’m here to serve as a teacher, as a translator but most of all as a servant […] I am a servant of God and I am a servant of the people that I represent. And I failed them both recently,” said the liberal lawmaker.
“I made a mistake. And I’m owning up to it,” she added. “And I’m not ever going to make a mistake like [that] again. I have learned my lesson.”
Democratic Party officials in the state have publicly called for Chappelle-Nadal to resign from her position over her vile remarks.
In her now deleted Facebook post, the Senator engaged in back-and-forth exchange with a fellow user, saying “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
Chappelle-Nadal’s comments are nothing new from the liberal left, who have been promoting violence against President Trump and his family immediately following the President’s inauguration in January; including Kathy Griffin’s gory photoshoot, a New York play depicting the brutal stabbing of an American president, actor Johnny Depp joking about killing the President, and others.
