For His Puerto Rico Response, Missouri State Senator Compares Trump to Hitler

A state senator from University City caught criticism on Thursday for the second time since August after she posted another controversial social media message regarding President Donald Trump.

In August, Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, said in a Facebook comment that she hoped for Trump's assassination. On Thursday morning, she tweeted a takeoff of a Dove cosmetic ad many called racist.

In the original ad, a black woman is pictured taking off a shirt to reveal a white woman. In Chappelle-Nadal's post, Trump takes off a shirt to reveal Adolf Hitler.

At least two Republican lawmakers shared their displeasure on Twitter.

State Rep. Phil Christofanelli, R-St. Peters, called the post "shameful." State Rep. Jean Evans, R-Manchester, said Chappelle-Nadal was continuing her "disgusting attacks on our president."

Unbelievable the continued lack of accountability with people in elected office. Federal, state AND local (Our Boy Toy), thinking one can do/say/dress however, whenever they like - forgetting they are there for one thing and one thing only - US!

All it takes are a few history lessons to see how Adolf waged a propaganda war to have Germany follow him blindly. The parallels are there.

She is a very slow learner. They cut her a break by only censuring her for the prior outburst. Legislature should boot her, and then as a private citizen she can be as irresponsible as she wishes and the law permits.
