Jesse Ventura Response What Hes Going to Do With the $1.8 Million Settlement in Chris Kyle Lawsuit
TheBlaze.com ^ | Jason Howerton

Posted on 07/30/2014 2:17:59 PM PDT by TexasCajun

Jesse Ventura, on Tuesday, was awarded a $1.8 million settlement in a defamation lawsuit he filed against slain Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle. The former Minnesota governor has alleged that Kyle intentionally lied when he claimed that he punched him in a bar after he said the Navy SEALs deserved to “lose a few.”

Ventura was asked Wednesday what he plans to do with the nearly $2 million that will come from the Kyle estate on CBS’ “This Morning,” with one of the anchors mentioning that it will be taken from Kyle’s widow, Taya, and two children.

“Pay my lawyers,” Ventura said, never revealing if his attorney fees really had accumulated into the millions. “Like I said, I didn’t have an insurance company paying the freight for me, I had to pay my own.”

Ventura made the case that he is a victim in this case and said he only wanted to get to the “truth” to clear his name.

“I’m already damaged,” he said. “I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place where I always felt safe. I can’t go there anymore without looking over my shoulder now wondering who is going to come after me next.”

The Frogman is still calling himself a Seal.

Jesse Ventura is the type of guy who would sue an American hero’s widow. That pathetic loser can’t even sue me for saying so, because he’s proven in public that my words are true.

Jesse is sure a fur ball! He used to come on the Mike Trivisanno Show on WTAM here in Cleveland. He called himself “Mr. Blue.” They disguised his voice electronically, but,,,, he has such distinctive mannerisms, etc., that it was easy to tell just who Mr. Blue was! I’ve spent lots of time in recording studios, and I knew it was him after hearing one sentence. I emailed Mike and asked him when he was going to have Jesse “Blue” on again. No answer, but the next time he was on, they altered his voice even more!
If he comes on again, I’m going to call in and call him Jesse. But they’ll just bleep it out!

Why? If you aren't the scumbag I think you are, why would your "brothers" be a threat to you?

Scumbag...

He hasn’t been awarded anything, yet. The judge makes the final call, based on the jury’s recommendations.

What’s funny is the reason he sued is because he was worried about his reputation.

He has a far worse reputation now. Can’t fix that.

I don't think I need to worry. He's okay with wrestling big guys when there is a script, and he's okay with fighting a grieving widow, but he doesn't seem like the type to challenge another man.

"What’s funny is the reason he sued is because he was worried about his reputation."

That's the irony that grabbed me from the start. Its about as valid as Snoop Doggie claiming someone is ruining his chance to be president.

Another strange point in the case is that the Kyle lawyer agreed to & accepted an 8-2 jury verdict instead of a hung jury when the jury told the judge they were hopelessly hung.

Chris Krok was hitting this hard yesterday on his show.
He interviewed Chris Kyle many times.

The hair has nothing to with him looking like a moron, it's just a fringe benefit.

Maybe if Jesse would shut his big mouth and stop bad mouthing the SEAL’s he wouldn’t have to feel so worried. Or if he had stopped his lawsuit agains’t Kyle’s widow maybe he could catch a break.

There would have been another trial if they were declared to be hung. I don’t think they would have wanted to go through another trial. This one was plenty expensive.

“I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place where I always felt safe. “

Well, maybe if you would stop being such an annoying jerk and badmouthing your own country, you might feel welcome more places, Jesse.

“I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore”

He never could. Jesse the fraud was never a SEAL. Never, ever, never. He was a UDT coward that could have volunteered to be a SEAL in Vietnam. They would have taken any and all volunteers. Instead, be chickened out and stayed UDT far away from Vietnam.

Jesse is a coward whose only fight has been against a Widow of a real SEAL.

That's what he says is the reason he sued.

Even he's not stupid enough to think that using the legal system to take $2 million away from a war hero's widow and orphaned children would bolster his reputation.

He sued for the money.

He had to know that it would further damage his reputation.

Now we know the value he places on reputation.

It's somewhere around $2 million. (or whatever's left after the whiner pays his equally honor-less lawyers)

Jesse regularly attended the reunions and was even given an award at one. He was also the guest speaker at one BUD/S graduation ceremony.
