Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden: ‘A military parade is third-world bullshit’

Robert O’Neill says he was the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden with a single shot to the head, Now he’s speaking out about President Trump’s proposed military parade, slamming it as “third-world bullshit.”

“A military parade is third world bullshit. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation,” O’Neill tweeted Thursday.

O’Neill joins a growing chorus of people across the political spectrum questioning the reasoning behind Trump’s request.

Earlier this week, various reports revealed that Trump wanted a parade like the one he saw on Bastille Day during his trip to France last July.

From Newsweek:

President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to put on a military parade to show off America’s military might. It will be similar to one Trump saw during his trip to France last July, and officials are working to make it happen later this year.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official toldThe Washington Post Tuesday. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”

Trump made the decision during a meeting at the Pentagon January 18, two officials told the Post. The planning process is in its “infancy,” Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers said Tuesday.

According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the potential parade is still undergoing a “brainstorming session.”
