Maria Chappelle-Nadal

Pressure is mounting for Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal to resign over a Facebook comment she made saying she hoped President Trump would be assassinated.

Chappelle-Nadal held a press conference on Sunday to apologize to President Trump for the since-deleted Facebook post in which she told a young man she would be visited by the Secret Service because she hoped Trump would be assassinated.

“President Trump I apologize to you and your family,” Chappelle-Nadal said on Sunday at the Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Mo.

“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.”

Chappelle-Nadal also invoked her faith, explaining “I am a servant of God and I am a servant of the people that I represent. And I failed them both recently.”

After apologizing to Trump, Chappelle-Nadal remained defiant, saying she will not resign from the Senate.

But she may not have a choice. Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and other lawmakers from both parties say they will vote to remove her from the Senate.

Missouri Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson says he can and will expel Chappelle-Nadal from the Missouri legislature if she doesn't resign immediately.

“To me there [are] ways to remove her from office but what I think she should do is take responsibility for her actions in state of Missouri and resign as a state senator,” said Parson.

Last week, Chappelle-Nadal said repeatedly she would not apologize to Trump for her statement and she would not resign.

  • SG

    How stupid of her.

  • hottlanta

    Did Dump apologize for his comment about shooting someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and folks will still vote for him during the campaign.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Don't apologize for being honest.

  • On the radar….

    She can't be a governing body saying those kind of comments. All it does is make the neo nazi, white nationalist firmer on their ignorance....even people like Sandra Rose who love to post everything hypocritical. I've heard many people say this in passing and in secret but won't say it publicly. Some things you just keep to yourself even if you are upset.

  • Coy little wink

    I like her hair...

  • sweetae99

    Draining the swamp. Girl bye!

  • Noirluv45

    Even though thousands who wish the same thing, it's bet to not say it. Some things are better left unsaid.

  • Youshockedme

    This is why I say speak as less as possible why would you work so hard to get this far up the ladder just to fall down without a catcher...this woman lacks self control and really forgot that being a black woman in politics doesn't afford you the same freedom of speech as a white woman...we need to get in these places and stay in these places of power so that we can help each other..she lost her place now her political career is ruined for no reason at all...Donald Trump is not a good enough reason to ruin your career. ...

  • Cali

    She should be fired for being so god damned stupid to write such foolishness ONLINE.

  • sealsaa

    While stupid, it's not even close to wishing harm on a specific person. She should know better being in the position she's in.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    She should be fired and banished to working in a Wal-Mart 45 miles from her home. That's ridiculous.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. It's a tough lesson to learn, but it looks like she's going to end up learning the hard way.
    We just cant have state senators wishing death on the President of the United States. Just not acceptable.

  • Youshockedme

    Exactly especially if you are a black senator. ..smh all that hard work gone down the drain..black people we need to get our mouth under control because if we don't we are gonna stay losing...

  • hottlanta

    I never said she was right to say that but was he right to make a comment like that as well.He should have never said anything like that for the position that he is in. I never heard anyone say anything like that in my life. Then again as President I never heard anything says the thing he says. That is why he is able to constantly get away with it. Being white has it privileges and Dump has proven that over and over and over and over again. Stupid, he didn't wish harm but he was taking bringing harm to another person whether he was specific or not.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She should resign for apologizing.

    The Democrats don't need any more cowards.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Bragging that you could commit murder and not lose support is actually worse but obviously his supporters thought that he was entertaining because he's an old fat white guy, but if an 'angry' black woman said it she must be serious.

    Typical double standard.

    He was on some how to get away with murder s*** and nobody batted an eye !!

  • MsPam

    Fire her!

  • Elevated Soul

    That idiotic woman is not sorry, she is just caught.She need to be removed from office because she has no self control. She threatened President Trump and for what exactly? She is just another democratic sheeple who is part of the herd mentality.

    Black demoncrats are some of the most stupidest people alive....Jobs are being created and these "broke as a joke negroes" are beside themselves because he was elected.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    She should have known better. Her career is history.

  • yvette46

    When will people learn to keep their big mouths shut.. Now she's going to jobless and homeless. .

  • Solstice

    I can't believe she said that! I'm not a Trump fan and I did not vote for him but I would never wish death upon him. I think she took her dislike for him too far. And be it that she's a senator, her comment was irresponsible. We need leadership/representation in the Senate and House, but we also need them to be on point at all times. They cannot be slipping like this. Smh…I'm sure she's wishing she could "Reclaim her time"

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    She had better hope she is not charged for making terroristic threats, js.

  • GuestSTAR

    I was hoping she wouldn't apologize, SMH, but I figured she would, SMH. She should of publicly stated that she was taking a cue from the President by not doing so.
    See, that's the difference between this mentally ill DUNCE White Man President, who can say the most egregious shyt and boastfully state he will not apologize and never does, compared to us and Dems. We bow, bend and get easily intimidated, Republicans are the total opposite, they go harder and it's frustrating. We won't be taking back shyt (mid term elections) in 2018. We'll be in the same ol powerless position.

  • tintin

    Well that was dumb

  • On the radar….

    I really do not like she said that. I'd rather he be impeached and ridiculed forever on SNL.

  • Music lover

    Why is it people(some blacks) get in good high paying jobs then act a fool or think they are some type of god and excempt from punishment when they say or do the most idiotic things .Example, this lady and for the record that is one of thee most unflattering pics ever,but it makes a point, she could've kelp her mouth closed.

  • NicoleZee

    I hope she loses her Senate seat. She is really dumb! Trump is an idiot, but you don't say things like that, especially when you hold a position such as hers. We may have free speech, but you still have to be held accountable when you say dumb shit publicly. The sad part is that people put all their energy into hating Trump when they can be doing some good for their communities and actually helping instead of acting like an ass with no home training. No one gets that upset with hate when women get raped or when children get molested or when young Black women disappear without a trace. Most people in this country are a complete and total embarrassment. SMFH!

  • NicoleZee

    All of this hate for Trump is getting real old, he's an idiot, yes, but people need to move on and focus on more relevant issues. I reserve hate for the appropriate sick dirtbags of the world, the rapists, killers, and child molesters that shouldn't breathe. Why don't these Senators and House members put their energy into enacting tougher laws and expanding the death penalty to all states for these sickos??? That's where the hate and energy should be going towards. But that's too much like right. No one cares about what victims go through until something horrific happens to them personally. Sad.

    Neither have his voters.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Many are thinking this, but I'm disappointed she actually said/posted this.

    Now how will she serve the community? She messed up her own mojo.

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
    If you don't see what he's doing to our country then you're either stupid or willfully blind.

  • Junkanoo

    Weird that she got so candid on facebook knowing her line of work.You shouldn't share all your personal opinions on social media.Somethings you share with close friends and family not on facebook she had to know better but allowed her frustration and bad judgement to get the better of her.

  • Trey

    yeah she got to get fired....

  • Alicia.Ashe

    She said what she said.......

  • BettyBoop

    So racism is no longer relevant? That's what Trump represents.

  • bella28498 .

    black ppl need to stay out of this and let the wp fight each other. There has not been one president that has done anything for bp why care now.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Pressure mounting for her to resign but 45 still hasnt...I'll wait

  • Vicki White

    Black people are political pawns for Democrats. We matter if we vote for them. They use civil rights to gain us and complain that we have no rights or our rights are threatened. By whom? You have the right to kill an unborn baby via abortion! What rights due we lack besides the right to get smart and make some real money!? So tired of us being used by these corrupt folks...??

  • BettyBoop

    I do not think that's fair to say. If Trump were not president he would be called to task as well. Trump has his own. He doesn't have to worry about losing his job if he says the wrong thing. If he is impeached he still has his millions to fall back on. Rich people have the power and they do not have to apologize.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Drunk Twitter?

  • disqus_vTNhfrtBCE

    She should have known better. Apologie excepted but she still has to go. Any other Senator would loose their jobs and she isn't the exception.

  • datATLboi

    WHEN ARE THEY GONNA LEARN TO SAY THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA WAS HACKED....SMH

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LOL Griffered ? She is though. Can't say and do anything because it hurts the bigger cause.

    I want him to be assassinated too. They kill Martin, Malcolm, and tons of others why not him. I would do it or try to get someone else to do it. But the people who SHOULD be assassinated but are not!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Her big mouth is getting her fired! LMBAO!!

  • dontgetblocked

    She deserves exactly what she's getting.

  • Les Grossman

    FINISH HER!!!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    Oh yes ma'am! You are correct, but there are still so many relevant issues that need attention. We can't change the sick mind of a racist person because they choose to be ignorant. Racism is important, but if people expect to change the minds of every racist in the world, they are fighting a losing battle. If Trump remains on office, I really would like to see him focus on enacting more policies and signing bills into law that involve crime, we need tougher laws for these sickos that hurt people, eapecially those that hurt children. Since Trump is racist and prejudiced against women, I doubt he will pay any attention to issues involving racism and discrimination.

  • CrazyLoca25

    WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT SHE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE HAD SAID THAT TO ASSASSINATION TRUMP DIDN'T WE HEAR 3 REPULICAN SENTORS AND 3 DEMOCRATES SENTORS HAD SAID THIS BEFORE!! WHY ARREST HER NOT THE OTHER SENTORS ?? IT'S BECAUSE HER SKIN COLOR!!!!!!!
