The Tulsa World reports that First District Congressman Jim Bridenstine’s office responded Thursday to criticism about an Internet video in which someone at a Bridenstine town hall meeting says President Barack Obama “should be executed.”

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

In the video that appears on YouTube, a town hall participant says: “Obama is not president as far as I’m concerned. He should be executed as an enemy combatant.”
