Jacqueline Fischer, from Clear Spring Maryland, posted on Facebook last week: “Since he has tested positive for COVID19, maybe the country will get lucky and he will die. Wouldn’t that be an act of karma!”

Fischer, who was first elected to the Washington County School Board in 2002, and taught English and journalism at several Washington County schools shared multiple posts criticizing the President on social media.

“He could care less how many Americans die from this even if he is the one who exposed them. I hope he dies from it. That would solve a lot of America’s problems,” one post read.

Another of the educator’s posts said the president’s death from coronavirus would be an “act of karma.”

Fischer was elected on the board from 2002 to 2006 as well as in 2010, 2014, and 2018.; her current term, which began in 2018, was set to expire in 2022.
