A Wisconsin mayor is in hot water with city legislators after posting a controversial critique of Barack Obama to his personal social media profile.

Accompanying an image of Michelle Obama, Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen’s Facebook post declared: “Unbelievable! She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of democracy that was so very hard fought for!”

Hagen has since publicly defended the message, citing his First Amendment liberty, and even went further by reiterating that he does not believe Obama’s claim that he is a Christian. His refusal to back away from the divisive rhetoric has led several of his city council members to question his ability to lead the city.

He is being asked to publicly disavow his statement or resign from his elected post.

“Quite simply,” Councilman Graham Garfield asserted, “these are really inappropriate comments. How can we have a non-partisan elected mayor who has to work with elected officials – including the president’s office – making these comments?”

Dan Olson agreed, suggesting that as mayor, Hagen should be held to higher standards.

“It’s not a private site,” he said of Facebook. “It’s a public site; and this has traveled.”

The mayor is getting some support from at least one council member, who said the remarks were personal and had nothing to do with his municipal duties.

While his comments have certainly made waves in his hometown, Hagen has amassed some vocal support as the story has spread nationally.

“Asked to resign?” one reader wrote on TheBlaze. “They should ask him to stay!”
