"The former Navy SEAL known for his role in the operation that killed Osama bin Laden is pushing back after President Donald Trump amplified conspiracy theories that the terrorist leader's death was a hoax.

Robert O'Neill, who says he killed bin Laden in the 2011 raid, has rebuffed Trump and others in several tweets for promoting the conspiracy theory that bin Laden's body double was instead killed.

"Very brave men said [goodbye] to their kids to go kill Osama bin Laden. We were given the order by President Obama. It was not a body double," O'Neill tweeted on Tuesday. "Thank you Mr. President. Happy birthday @USNavy."

The response from the former Navy SEAL came after the president on Tuesday retweeted a QAnon-linked account that promoted a baseless conspiracy theory alleging that bin Laden is still alive and his body double was instead killed. The account has since been suspended. Trump retweeted another video on Wednesday promoting conspiracy theories about bin Laden's death."

President Slimeball.

It never ceases to amaze me how low the Republicans will go to try to raise conspiracy theories.

Next I supposed we'll be hearing about some PC repair shop in Delaware that has found some old incriminating emails on a laptop that just happened to show up recently.

This is especially weird because Flynn and O'Neil likely know one another, if not from their former high speed/low drag service days, then from their book/speaking tour days now.

GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead and both thanks to Barack Hussein Obama II.

This must upset the orange plague to no end.

Just more overt anti-black racism from the ------- POTUS impostor spewing his filth from the White House. He loves the idea of denying the FACT that OBL was liquidated on "The Muslim Kenyan's" watch. Also a slap in the face to not only the involved Navy Seals but the whole military, CIA, etc that pulled this off. Orange Turd is going to lose on 11/3, he's desperate, and his true ugliness is on full display. And boy is it hideous. And Melania calls Stormy a "porn hooker"? LOL! What do you call a woman who lies down with this man, she knows she married a monster. I never understood a person could be as despicable as Trump, it's been quite educational (in a bad way) to behold!

Both sides are being hilarious on this, once again. Trump is dumb and posts conspiracy theories. Dems are dumb for using people who would have had to be in on the conspiracy as proof. If there is a conspiracy, and right now it's incredibly dumb to believe there is a conspiracy, then you wouldn't want to hear from the ones who would have been involved in it. Kind of common sense. But, so many Libs still believe we didn't land on the moon so there is plenty of dumb to go around.

That's right. So stop nominating them and electing them as your leaders.

It's not like the field was ripe with options.

In 2016 you all had an obvious option - Gary Johnson. In the 1980's he would have been pretty vanilla, R or D.

But you all can't think outside the damn box, can you?

"it's a two party system, what can we do?"

It's a two party system because that is what you are told, and that is what you believe.

---- pathetic. I'm glad I don't have any living children to see what has become of these United States.

It's a two party system because the other parties show up every 4 years a swing for a home run. Instead of getting local wins and building up their respective parties.

I'm all for third parties. But I can't conscionably allow Trump to win another presidency knowing I didn't do what I could to stop him.

Turns out they were right about that.

We don't even have a parliamentary system here in the United States.

Perhaps our Russian visitors don't understand how that, and our winner take all system of elections, effectively guarantees a two-party system.

Americans who don't understand it can thank Republicans for taking civics out of the public school curriculum.

Bull poop. It's two party system because of money, and fear. Advertising, apathy, pure and simple. Also a huge helping of a pathetic education system.

The "third parties" aren't popular because they aren't given a chance..and most Americans are too busy voting for bread and circuses to realize their children and grand children will be living in a Republican Hell hole if they don't do something about it.

The 1950's were great aye?

No, it's a two party system because the Founders built a two-party system.

Back when we had all those parties...

Let's see, we had Republicans and Democrats, and we arrested Communists and Socialists...

Which is why I recommend starting at the local level.

I swear you're either messing with me or don't realize when I'm being sarcastic.

I really despise the R/D bull poop the US has become - I thought i was being obvious but it's almost like arguing with HRat.

Wait are you an HRat avatar?

Do you really need the /s part?

Wait, so your whole thing is sarcasm?

You fundamentally understand why our government is a two-party system?

Come on sniffer...it doesn't have to be a "two party system" - and don't give us the BS that it was "designed that way". It wasn't. It has become that because of..well where do I start. Corporate person-hood, money= freedom of speech, the worlds most expensive and crappy public education system.

And you. You are the problem. Or everyone like you. You are as bad or worse than the Republicans.

There are at least 30 million people in the US that need to be put to the sword to fix this stupidity in the short term.

That won't happen, but in the long term education could maybe fix it an few generations.

I can only hope that Covid-19/FLU will make a huge difference during the next election cycle.

Nah. It will always devolve to a two party system, precisely because it was designed that way: 1. No Parliament; 2. Winner-take-all elections

Moments later,

"There are at least 30 million people in the US that need to be put to the sword to fix this stupidity in the short term."

Only 30 million?
"Those are rookie numbers."
