Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Slams 'Jackass' Jesse Ventura for 'Shaking Down' Chris Kyle Widow
Posted on 08/02/2014 6:35:51 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hammered Jesse Ventura for winning a $2 million defamation lawsuit this week against Chris Kyle's widow.
After Kyle's death, Ventura continued with the lawsuit that stemmed from a passage from Kyle's book in which Kyle claimed he knocked out an unnamed Navy SEAL for trashing the troops. During his book tour, Kyle said that was Ventura. But after Kyle was tragically killed in 2013, many felt that Ventura, who has done a lot to damage his own reputation over the years, should have dropped the lawsuit.
"Hey tough guy, Jesse Ventura, your feelings were hurt because you perceived your reputation was besmirched by words in a book?" Palin said on her SarahPalinChannel. "So you turn around and sue, expecting $2 million from a military widow and her fatherless children? Yeah, like that is going to help your reputation, jackass."
Chris Kyle was a true American patriot -- the soldier who stood up for his country and saved so many lives by doing the job his Commander-in-chief gave him, taking out the bad guys. For his extraordinary work, Chris was known as "The American Sniper."(continued)

Hah! The divine Sarah strikes again. Her sweet daughter, Bristol, on Facebook, has been eviscerating him as well.
Sarah spanks the Minnesota Wanker.
If Sarah Palin sued everyone who said bad things about her in books, TV shows and movies she’d never have time for anything else.
I am not getting this bashing of Ventura... yeah he is a bit of a buffoon, but HE WON in court.
Proving defamation is very hard and there is a high burden of proof, and he was able to prove it.
It was not unfair, if the guy had not died he would be forced to apologize for it.
Yes he could have dropped the case- but the guy made $6 million defaming Ventura and Ventura has $2million reasons not to have dropped it
Leave him alone, I say- he proved his case
In addition to Je$$e Jack$son, there’s now Je$$e Ventura. Sarah better watch out or she’ll be sued.
Jackass is too kind.
Ventura’s name was not mentioned in the book. Only a person called “Scruff Face”.
Only to 8 of 10 jurors. The defendants agreed to fold to make the buffoon just go away and be able to get on with their lives.
I can't wait 'til Piper starts tweeting.
granted, he proved his case in court—
he also proved a lot more about his character
and it is now on full display
I say Sarah is more man than Jesse or maybe you too.
“Proving defamation is very hard and there is a high burden of proof, and he was able to prove it.”
The jury was “hung”. The judge offered to settle the case. Kyle’s attorneys rolled the dice only to find it was 8 for Ventura the wimp and two against.
Bad lawyers, piss poor decision.
Ventura the wimp did not prove anything.
WHY is Alex Jones BUDDIES with this insect..????!?!?!?!?!?!?
WHY is Alex Jones BUDDIES with this insect..????!?!?!?!?!?!?
From what I read, the jury was deadlocked, but the judge would not declare a mistrial.
Besides, Ventura has a reputation for shooting his mouth off.
How can you prove a case against a guy who is dead? He's not even there to face his accuser. If it was a criminal case and either the accuser or alleged perp was dead, the case would have been dropped. How can you win a case against someone who is not there to defend himself?
That’s our girl!
Truthers, I imagine.
Now jackass Ventura will sue Sarah for besmirching him.
Ventura is a jackass who has professed his admiration of Castro and Che. He is a public figure and this did not harm his already smarmy reputation. I say that the scumbag should dig deep for personal security.
Yep. He did.
Ventura is an idiot..he gives me a pain.
The fool is a 9/11 truther... how can anyone be that dense.
Taking money from that grieving family is despicable and that act will come to define Ventura as an evil jackass.
I don’t think he’s that stupid.
Easy. He wrote a book that turned out to contain a bit of BS. He signed his name on it, published it, and earned a nice payday selling it.
If he did it is a good bet she can afford more than adequate counsel now...
Even though she’s right,she should be name-calling. It’s undignified for a leader/adult.
Ventura lowered peoples opinion of him by doing this.imo
I can’t figure that out. Sometimes AJ hits the nail....other times a loon. Wish he had more discernment. He’d be more powerful if he did. Otherwise....it’s like listening to Coast To Coast AM.
You mean like VP Cheney and the Clymer fellow???
I will never forget the image of her licking her hand and smoothing down her little brother's unruly hair :-)
He is a public figure anyone can call him a wanker, a coward or whatever.
“expecting $2 million from a military widow and her fatherless children”
That’s a literally true but deceptive characterization if they’re sitting on a 6 million dollar estate from the sale of the book as indicated in the post below.
Did Gov. Palin use the words “destitute, poor” or “poverty-stricken” in her description? And taking even one dollar from a widow and her children is very wrong without a good reason.
Alex Jones is one of those odd people who are 90% brilliant and 10% crackpot.
I had a friend, now deceased, who was the same way. I told him once he was the world’s smartest crackpot...he laughed :-)
Newt would fall into the same category...
Which part is incorrect? I’ll dissect it for you.
She shouldn’t lower herself with name-calling.
I hate to admit it but I guess you are right.
I’m really fond of Newt though.
I have a soft spot for such characters.... Nikola Tesla was also such a man.
I have actually seen people defending the pig Ventura on TV.
Alex Jones is a911 truther nut.
Yeah, he’s your buddy. Doesn’t say much for you. Sued any widows lately?
She’s got that spunk....like her mom. Haha! Love it!
BTW, I don’t care if he had a Billion dollar estate.
Jesse sued a dead man and won.
The wife and children of this dead man had absolutely no involvement with this idiot, Jesse “The Body” Ventura.
She implied it. When you say "military widow and her fatherless children" the implication is that they are not well off. The average person hearing that and not knowing the background of the story would certainly think so. It's entirely possible to state facts in such a way as to distort the truth. For example I could say Sarah Palin "resigned as governor under a cloud of accusations of official misconduct". Factual, but it distorts the truth.
Obviously there is something here I am not quite grasping.
If Boa Boi thought his reputation was damaged before his chicken**** lawsuit, it’s worse now. He’s a crybaby.
