This is making the rounds on social media as one of the most glorious self-owns, which is, for you old-timers, when someone tries to one-up someone else, and ends up shooting their foot instead.
Here’s what happened – the famous Rob O’Neil took a jab at Obama:
Nazis are bad. Now try saying “Radical Islam...” https://t.co/2jS4b8OgwJ— Robert J. O'Neill (@mchooyah) September 7, 2018
Cool, cool. A decent jab.
So some random liberal idiot tries to take a potshot at O’Neil:https://twitter.com/itmustend_/status/1038138325062832131
Uhh.. wait what?

In case you don’t know, ROB O’NEIL IS THE GUY WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER THAT SENT THE BULLETS THAT BLEW APART OSAMA BIN LADEN’S BRAIN MEATS INTO MIST.
Yes, he’s that guy, and this little nothing tried to pwn him. So that didn’t go well.
O’Neil is pretty gracious – later he tweeted some credit to Obama:
Just to be clear: President Obama gave us the order to get bin Laden. He also ordered us to rescue Captain Phillips. We did both. Thank you Mr. President.— Robert J. O'Neill (@mchooyah) September 8, 2018
And then some on the right were dumb enough to try to take potshots at him for saying a nice polite thing out of Obama, and he took them apart too. Ugh. What a stupid stupid time to be alive.
Anyway here’s O’Neil talkin’ about a pretty wonderful moment in U.S. history:
