"Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal has to go".

HLN anchor Carol Costello tore into the Missouri state senator who said last week that she hoped for the assassination of President Donald Trump.

"State Senator Chappelle-Nadal's comments are indefensible", Missouri Democratic Party Chairman Stephen Webber said in a statement, according to Fox News.

Trump, a Republican, later asserted that "both sides" of the protests were to blame for the violence, drawing criticism across the political spectrum. Governor Greitens, Senator McCaskill, Congressman Clay, Congressman Cleaver, and numerous others - including myself - have called for Senator Chappelle-Nadal to resign, but she has thus far refused. Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, both Republicans, said Friday that state senators should oust her.

"Someone wrote a statement on my Facebook and I responded with something that shouldn't have been put up there", Chappelle-Nadal said.

The state senator has one year left on her term, and will not be able to run for re-election next year due to term limits.

Earhardt then told Setzer: "Christy, there's been a few Democrats who have come out and said that it was wrong for her to say that and she needs to step down, but where is the outcry from the Democratic Party?" I do not make this request of you lightly, but you and I know it is the right course of action to take for the people of Missouri.

And it matters not that on Sunday she expressed her regret directly to the Trumps.

Her apology was also extended to her colleages in the state legislature.

"You know, when there's undisputed evidence that there's been some wrongdoing by an elected official, you know, the denouncing of the person should be quick", she continued.

Chappelle-Nadal's assassination comment wasn't just a slip of the tongue.

"The message that has been sent to me by our God is that I am here to serve as a teacher, as a translator, but most of all as a servant", she explained.

"She should resign immediately".

Opposition towards President Donald Trump has been growing each month with even those from his own party starting to distance themselves from him.

Speaking to reporters in Ferguson on Sunday afternoon, Chappelle-Nadal requested that media outlets not publish the location of the news conference ahead of time because she'd been receiving a high volume of death threats.
