Navy SEAL Who Killed Osama Bin Laden: ‘A Military Parade Is Third World Bullshit’


Navy SEAL Who Killed Osama Bin Laden: ‘A Military Parade Is Third World Bullshit’

Robert J. O’Neill, the former U.S. Navy SEAL and Fox News contributor who famously claims to have fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden, torched President Trump over reports that he ordered the Pentagon to plan a military parade later this year, calling it “third world bullshit.”

“A military parade is third world bullshit,” Robert J. O’Neill tweeted on Thursday.

“We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation.”

The comments come after the White House said President Trump has asked the Pentagon to explore holding “a celebration” for Americans to show their appreciation for the armed forces. The military says it has begun moving forward with the request.

A spokesman for the Department of Defense said the agency is “aware of the request” and is in the process of “determining specific details.”

“President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement earlier this week.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) called the proposal “a fantastic waste of money to amuse the president,” and urged Trump to funnel the funds that would be spent on a parade into efforts to “fix military housing, hire more [Veterans Affairs] doctors… or give more flight training time.”

Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz tweeted: “A military parade costs millions. Let’s fix military housing, hire more VA doctors, fund telehealth, DOD schools, support the commissaries, daycare for families, or give more flight training time. Our highest defense priority must be the service members, not the politicians.”
