“I Hope He Dies From It.” – School Board Member Resigns Over Anti-Trump Messages
A veteran Maryland educator who wished President Trump would die has resigned from the Washington County Board of Education.
“Since he has tested positive for COVID19, maybe the country will get lucky and he will die,” Jacqueline Fischer wrote on her personal Facebook page. “Wouldn’t that be an act of karma!”

Fischer wrote the hateful screeds just after the announcement that the President and First Lady had contracted COVID-19. She also wrote:
• “Of course Trump wouldn’t wear a mask and kept posing (sic) people. He is an (expletive) who does not give a fig about anyone but himself. He could care less how many Americans die from this virus even if he is the one who exposed them. I hope he dies from it. That would take care of a lot of America’s problems.”
• “Trump keeps down playing (sic) the virus, either by ignoring it or by lying about it. Now that he and Melania have tested positive for the virus, maybe he will change his tune. But I doubt it. Only if he dies of COVID19 (sic) will there be a change of attitude in the White House!”
Jerry DeWolf, the chairman of the local Republican party, condemned the school board member’s remarks.
“I think she should resign immediately or be forcefully removed by the state board of education,” DeWolf told The Herald-Mail. “I would advocate that for anyone of any political persuasion who is calling for the death of the president of the United States of America. It is absolutely sickening and disgusting.”
