A school board member in Washington County, Maryland is set to resign after she made several posts on social media wishing for the death of President Donald Trump following his coronavirus diagnosis.
“The Washington County Board of Education (WCBOE) will formally accept the resignation of Board member Jacqueline Fischer at the Board of Education’s public business meeting on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, at 6:00 p.m,” a message on the school board’s website read.
“Mrs. Fischer’s resignation comes after posting comments regarding the President of the United States on her personal social media account,” the message added. “The comments do not reflect the views, positions, or opinions of the WCPS or the WCBOE.”
This bulletin comes after she made comments on her social media accounts following President Trump’s tweet about him in the first ladies diagnosis with COVID-19.
“Since he [Trump] has tested positive for COVID19, maybe the country will get lucky and he will die,” Fisher’s since-deleted post reportedly read. “Wouldn’t that be an act of karma.”
“He [Trump] could care less how many Americans die from this even if he is the one who exposed them,” a second since-deleted post, reportedly read. “I hope he dies from it. That would solve a lot of America’s problems,” per WFMD.
“THANK YOU Ms. Fischer for your resignation,” the statement read. “I would also like to thank the other members of the school board as well who helped make this possible.”
“We look forward to the conclusion of this situation on Tuesday when her resignation is official,” the statement added. “Our community can now begin the healing process and work to build a better educational system deserving of our great county.”
According to the article she was elected to the school board in 2002 and served until 2006. Then she was reelected in 2018 where she was set to serve until 2022.
