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.
Two Republican state representatives from suburban St. Louis criticized Chappelle-Nadal's latest social media post in tweets of their own Thursday.
Chappelle-Nadal remixed the ad to show Trump's face superimposed on the first woman only to turn into Hitler after removing the shirt.

On Thursday, Trump lashed out at Puerto Rico, insisting in tweets that the federal government can't keep sending help "forever" and suggesting the US territory was to blame for its financial struggles. "I still have a First Amendment right, and I still have a family I need to fight for".
She told The Associated Press that she posted the meme because of his tweets on Puerto Rico earlier on Thursday. She has also been stripped of her committee assignments in the next legislative session.
Chappelle-Nadal said the meme had been circulating among some in St. Louis who are protesting white supremacy and inequities in policing. The senator, who is black and whose mother is from Puerto Rico, said she still has not heard from some of her other relatives on the island.

Despite some calling for Chappelle-Nadal to step down over her increasingly inflammatory remarks, she has previously said "I am not resigning" - and if she wouldn't resign over an assassination wish directed at the president, it's safe to assume an offensive meme won't change her mind.

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