2. How?

Its not a credible threat and really not actionable. The worst he gets is a visit from the Secret Service about how they don't like it when things like that are posted.

3. If you continue to let shit like this pass, it will soon happen at a higher and higher frequency.

I don't know the exact law concerning this, but if he did break a law, he should be prosecuted. If not, then never mind.

6. The magic phrase is credible threat

Without it, there is nothing. With it, life could get really hard.

The Secret Service has a standard speech they give to idiots for this, and it usually is quite effective. Most likely the guy will tweet/post about how sorry he was after they are done with him.

7. The Secret Service does not require satisfaction, they are pros.

They have a standard dance they do for this kind of thing. I would expect some sort of contrite tweet or post from him soon enough.

5. I had to google this little creep to find out who he is.....

Insipid is the word that first comes to mind. If my child turned out like this, I would feel so sad that I had failed so miserably as a parent.
