Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., laughed when one of his constituents told him that President Barack Obama “should be executed as an enemy combatant” during a town hall meeting in January.
Bridenstine was in the process of telling the meeting that legalization of drugs is only creating more crime in America, when a woman he called on derailed the discussion.
“Go ahead,” he told the woman, who’s face is not visible in the video.
“I want to ask you about Obama. He’s not president as far as I’m concerned. He should be executed as an enemy combatant, really,” she said. “But the Muslims that he is shipping into our country through pilots in commercial jets. What … I can’t tell you, I can’t say because we’re in a public place that this guy is a criminal. Nobody stopping him.”
“And the other thing is too, with Congress doing nothing, that legally allows this moron to make decisions,” she continued. “He has no authority! None!”
“Look,” said Bridenstine, “everybody knows the lawlessness of this president. He picks and chooses which laws he’s going to enforce or not enforce. He does it by decree. When he can’t create a law through Congress, then he uses the – bureaucracies in the executive branch … When he can’t even get that done, then he uses foreign bodies.”
When he asked the meeting for one final question he called on another woman, who said, “The only way I see out of this is to overwhelmingly change the Senate, so that we can impeach the S.O.B.”
