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."
