A Missouri Democrat was recently spotted conveying an awful “hope” for the U.S. president before deleting the Facebook post, but here it is:

From the Post Dispatch:
Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated.
The comment has since been removed. But Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in response to another commenter before deleting it.
“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated,” Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. “Things have got to change.”
And guess who’s now involved:

Chappelle-Nadal continues to make her dislike of Trump well-known:
45 traumatizes his citizens. We need a self-correction. The stability of our nation is standing on wobbly stilts. Our strength is in doubt.

It depends on what your definition of “self-correction” is.
She needs to be arrested- this is against the law
