The director of a Texas museum partially funded by taxpayer dollars appears to be in hot water over a Republican Hate message she posted to Facebook on Super Tuesday.
Melonnie Hicks, executive director of the Pioneer City County Museum in Sweetwater, wrote, the station spewed:
“I hope every single one of you pieces of s**t that votes Republican dies today,”

In a since-deleted tweet that was attached to the above tweet. Texas Trump Girl was able to screengrab Melonnie Hicks’ ‘Hope Republicans Die’ Tweet.
After word spread about Hicks’ post and controversy erupted, Melonnie Hicks channeled her ‘how can I make this worse’ before issuing her sorry, NOT sorry apology on Facebook:
“I was really mad at Republicans for voting against health care since my options today are die or go into debt to see the doctor. It was gross which is [why] I deleted it.”
Of course, Melonnie Hicks could have written:
‘I was really mad at Democrats for passing Obamacare without so much as reading the bill and finding out that it was an imbecilic bill at best. Now my options today are die or go into debt to see the doctor.’
But she nevertheless she went with her TDS all Republicans must die feelings.
Hilariously, Hicks’ deleted both her tweet and personal Facebook page sorry, not sorry apology
The museum’s board of directors is scheduled to hold a 5:30 p.m. emergency meeting Friday at the Sweetwater Police Department to discuss Hicks’ comment and her future with the museum.
Responding to Hicks’ social media stupidity, City Manager David Vela told local station KTXS:
“It’s regrettable and reprehensible, especially from someone who is a community leader. Those kind of comments should never be made on social media or anywhere else.”
