Jesse Ventura, Bless His Heart

Ventura I sue wives of fallen heroes

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?

BABY Butthurt

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?!

    “After having been awarded nearly $2 million to be paid by the late serviceman’s widow, one might assume that Ventura would simply slip away and enjoy his victory. It seems, however, Ventura’s narcissism prevented him from taking the tasteful approach here.

    “In an appearance on CBS News’ This Morning on Wednesday, Ventura engaged in an amateurish attempt to manipulate your emotions by simply insisting rather forcefully that you should not feel sorry for the women who lost her husband to an assassin’s bullet who now has to pay millions to a professional self-promoter with a tenuous grasp on reality. Instead, Ventura insisted that he is the victim here.”

    Asked if he planned any future legal action around this defamation issue, Ventura promised to “visit” HarperCollins – the publisher of American Sniper – presumably to seek further damages over what he alleged and a jury agreed was an unfounded claim. Calling this man a douchebag is an insult to douchebags everywhere.

  3. That pretty much sums it up. Hard to imagine anybody voluntarily doing this much thermonuclear damage to his “reputation.”

      This twit is so damn dumb, he doesn’t seem to get that his fan base was all God&Country right wingnuts. HE sabotaged his own career when he went all atheist Leftard, long before Chris Kyle opened his mouth.

      Well, that and getting old and fat. Some action heroes managed to stay actively employed after they got too old for the action roles, but they did it by staying fit and being smart.

      I am 100% convinced the lawsuit was more about a fading from the limelight narcissist jumping the shark to get the attention he craves. He won nearly $2 million. At 63, he could retire comfortably, but nooooooooo, he’s going to start another lawsuit. The man is beyond pathetic.

      • Absolutely. He blamed Kyle for “taking” his reputation from him, when everybody has always known he did that to himself. But the guy’s still in Category 5 denial! Like you say, it’s beyond pathetic.

        What makes me even more sick is to think that Minnesota currently has someone even more criminally narcissistic in the Senate. Al Franken. It seems to be a pattern with them.
