Bridenstine Supporters Call for President Obama's Impeachment

Posted: Updated:

In a video circulating online, supporters of Oklahoma congressman Jim Bridenstine, called for the 'impeachment' and 'execution' of President Obama in a town hall meeting.

"Obama is not president, as far as I'm concerned.  He should be executed as an enemy combatant," said an unidentified woman in the video. "I can't tell you, or I can't say because we are in a public place, this guy is a criminal."

Bridenstine responded to the woman, stating "everybody knows the lawlessness of this president," however he never said anything about the execution of Obama or agreed with the women on those charges. Bridenstine also did not correct the statements during the meeting.

"The only way I see out of this is to overwhelmingly change the senate, so that we can then impeach the SOB," said another unidentified woman.

"You know, you look so sweet..." said Bridenstine to the woman.

The video was posted on YouTube Jan. 28, 2014.

In a statement, the Oklahoma Democratic Party called for the congressman to apologize to President Obama and Oklahomans.
"Just three days ago, someone was arrested for threatening to kill President George Bush. It is absolutely astonishing that a sitting United States Congressman would encourage and support that type of behavior," said ODP Chairman Wallace Collins. "As an Oklahoman I am appalled that someone would threaten the Commander-in-Chief--Republican or Democrat."

Bridenstine stated that the remarks of others should not be attributed to him. 

"A public figure cannot control what people say in open meetings. I obviously did not condone and I do not approve of grossly inappropriate language," Bridenstine said in a statement. "It is outrageous that irresponsible parties would attribute another person's reckless remarks to me."
