I find I am unable to comment honestly on how I feel about a grown man who has such a panty wad jammed up his crack that he actually sues a widow for something her dead husband may or may not have done eight years ago. “Turn the other cheek” comes to mind. Beyond that, my thoughts turn to unladylike words I try not to use.
Here is the back story …
On July 29, 2014, a jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his lawsuit against the estate of American Sniper author Chris Kyle. Ventura claimed that the book defamed him when it claimed Kyle had punched him for saying that “the Navy SEALs deserve to lose a few.”
Ventura’s lawyer said Kyle’s claims that Ventura said he hated America, thought the U.S. military was killing innocent civilians in Iraq, and that the SEALs “deserve to lose a few” had made him a pariah in the community that mattered most to him – the brotherhood of current and former SEALs.
- As far as I can figure, Ventura never denied he’d slandered the SEALs he claimed to care so much about.
- What he denied was that Kyle had decked him.
I’m sorry but ……….. jaw dropping amazement here. A former SEAL and professional wrestler got his panties in a bunch because some other SEAL claimed to have punched him? Did the big, bad, now deceased man also call Baby Butthurt a mean name?
Ventura’s attorney suggested $5 million to $15 million would be “reasonable compensation” for “irreparable harm” to Ventura’s “reputation.”
- Ventura’s REPUTATION?!
- Is he freaking KIDDING me?!
