What do you say when a constituent calls for the execution of the President?

Not this:

Or this:

“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. It is outrageous that irresponsible parties would attribute another person’s reckless remarks to me.”

– Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), Statement released in response to woman’s call to murder the President

When did it become OK for United States Congressmen (or citizens) to sit by, passively, while someone called for the murder of the President? Why isn’t this woman considered a “thug”? Seems to me that she fits the definition quite a bit better than any rapper or football player.
