As so frequently happens when cowards post their true feelings on social media, they delete them in the hopes of averting well-deserved feedback.

As so frequently also happens, Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was unable to remove the archives of her post, which includes her hope that Donald Trump is assassinated.

According to The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, Chappelle-Nadal was “in an exchange with a left-wing activist who claimed that his cousin is a Secret Service agent.”

Only a portion of the dialog remains. In it, Christopher Gangé cryptically writes, “What I posted earlier, I truly believe will happen, sooner … not later.” He goes on to add:

Damn, now I’ll probably get a visit from the secret service, smdh.

Here’s the exchange:

According to Ross, Chappelle-Nadal confirmed in a tweet to a reporter with St. Louis TV station KMOX that she posted the comment.

It’s unclear whether either of these cretins will be visited by the Secret Service, though it would be nice to think that at the very least Chappelle-Nadal is forced to resign her post.
