Mo. state senator posts tweet comparing Trump to Hitler

Mo. state senator posts tweet comparing Trump to Hitler”

Two months ago, Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes "Trump is assassinated" - now, she is comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

Ms. Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, posted a meme of Mr. Trump taking off a shirt and becoming Hilter. By the time the shirt is off, Hitler's face is revealed in place of Trump's. The ad was called racist, and the company apologized. She said she has family on the island, and the issue was "personal".

Two Republican lawmakers have already responded to the tweet, according to The St. Louis Dispatch.

She also defended the meme by saying it was popular among St. Louis protesters, who are peacefully demonstrating against police brutality.

The state senator has one year left on her term, and will not be able to run for re-election next year due to term limits.

The U.S. Secret Service said it was looking into Chappelle-Nadal's comment, though she appears to not have faced any disciplinary action.

Asked Thursday whether her Hitler post didn't undercut the sincerity of her apology, Chappelle-Nadal replied, "My apology was for a bad misguided statement on Facebook where I was addressing trauma among African Americans".
