  • Missouri Senator Makes New Negative Trump Post After Censure

A Democratic senator from suburban St. Louis who was censured by the Missouri Legislature for a Facebook post that hoped for President Donald Trump's assassination said Thursday that she stands by her new tweet comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler.

In Chappelle-Nadal's post, Trump takes off a shirt to reveal Adolf Hitler.

The meme is a parody of a widely-panned Dove bodywash ad that shows a black woman taking off her brown T-shirt to reveal a white woman underneath wearing a white shirt.

She criticized the Trump administration's efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, saying the slow recovery would lead to widespread "illness, death and despair".

"Our president has again failed the American people", Chappelle-Nadal said. "I still have a First Amendment right, and I still have a family I need to fight for".

It wasn't immediately clear Thursday if her tweet of the Trump meme will cause backlash similar to the kind sparked by her August assassination post, which she deleted and apologized for amid calls for her to resign. "Then ask yourself why you have different qualifications for a black woman of Puerto Rican descent than other people putting up a meme with no words".

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

While claiming she's a "servant of God", Chappelle-Nadal also defiantly declared: "There is no way in hell that I'm resigning!"

"The meme has been shared among St. Louis protesters for almost a week now. It's old and support the protesters fighting against brutality", she said.

Though her Senate colleagues admitted in September they did not have the votes to remove Chappelle-Nadal from office, they did vote to censure her, nearly unanimously. "I support the protesters & I support Puerto Rico!"

Only two of Chappelle-Nadal's colleagues - state Sens.
