Sick: Jesse Ventura jokes about Kyle lawsuit victory

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

You would think that after winning his defamation lawsuit against Chris Kyle’s estate, Jesse Ventura would have the good sense to be satisfied and not continue to attack the fallen SEAL’s memory or family. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Instead, he’s hit the media circuit, defending – and failing – how he plans to spend the money that he won from Kyle’s widow.

When asked what he planned to do with the money, Ventura sarcastically replied that he planned to pay his lawyers.

CBS’s Gayle King asked, “He served his country. His wife is a widow. They have two children, a nine-year-old and a seven-year-old. The estate has to pay out a million dollars in fees. What are you going to do with the money?”

“Pay my lawyers,” Ventura replied. “Again, like I said, I didn’t have an insurance company paying the freight for me. I had to pay my own. You know, it’s unfortunate, but the jury rendered that decision. Jesse Ventura did not render how and why the money would be paid. That came from a jury, not from me. So if you’re going to question the money, question the jury. They made that decision. Gov. Jesse Ventura did not.”

Isn’t it a little weird that he speaks in the third person?

Ventura appears to suffer from a distinct lack of self-awareness, as he can’t seem to understand why his reputation may be ruined among he fellow veterans over the lawsuit.


“Some suggest that you may have damaged your reputation by pursuing a lawsuit against the widow,” CBS’s Charlie Rose asked Ventura during an interview.

“Well, if seeking the truth damages you, then we live in a pretty sorry world, don’t we? When the truth can hurt you and the truth came out, it never occurred, and that’s all I sought from it. And I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore,” Ventura said.

Is it really Ventura’s search for the truth the reason his reputation has been damaged? Glenn certainly doesn’t think so, and said his reputation has been destroyed among the SEALs because of how the lawsuit is impacting the Kyle family.

Glenn described what it was like Chris Kyle’s funeral:

The one thing you learned, they’re brothers and come hell or high water doesn’t matter how you you feel about them. If one of them falls, they all stand behind the widow and the family. And I’ve never seen anything so powerful as these SEALs all in their uniform standing behind Chris Kyle’s wife as she is struggling to deliver a eulogy. And with military precision and honor as she is breaking down, the SEALs surround her and just quietly slowly put their gloved hand on her back. It was remarkable. And that is what our military men are like. That’s what our SEALs are like. When a brother has fallen, no matter what you thought of him, you do not sue the wife. You comfort the wife. You comfort and aid the children.

Does it sound like Ventura is treating the Kyle family with the same level of respect and honor as the rest of the SEAL community?

    The very effeminate Glenn is whining about the truth? What if Jesse said Glenn is a child molester? Or what if he said that Glenn beats his children and wife black and blue, and he ( Jesse) had to step in a punch-out Glenn? That’s slander if it’s untrue. Right? How’d it feel if the shoe was on the other foot and the very effeminate Glenn got slandered? If such slander is then put in writing making six million in profit for the slanderer, and people actually start believing Glenn is a molester, what do you think it would cost Glenn? Maybe his sponsors would drop him costing Glenn millions.

    Does anybody think it’s right to profit off of lies? The Kyle family has plenty of support. They’ll be fine. And so will the Ventura family. The Ventura family has a real man who’ll stand up and fight for his reputation……. Nothing wrong with that….

    Glenn has gone so PC-crazy it is not even funny. First Glenn demands Ventura give all the money to charity….Then Glenn says that Ventura was ‘attacking a heroes widow”…Then Glenn says it was a sick joke when in fact there was no joke made by Ventura…

    Change the word “Glenn” to “MSNBC” and it would be the same Alinsky tactics they use all the time.

    Ventura sounded perfectly reasonable. Ventura has a right to defend his name and the jury agreed. Glenn, quit airing your personal feelings about Ventura. He’s doing exactly what you did when you attempted to defend your reputation against Eiland-Hall for advertising you raped and murdered a young girl in 1990.

    The guy brags about sucker punching a guy in a bar and runs away. And it apparently wasn’t even true.

    “Someone on the line says that you got in a fight with Jesse Ventura” Kyle planted the story to sell his book.

    He was at a notorious pickup bar (McP’s I’ve been there) having a “family” wake and he was concerned about the family?

    Chris Kyle was a jerk

    Stop with the tears. Glenn stop trying to cash in on it.

  • Crassus

    Looks like this place has been taken over by Jesse Ventura’s butt buddies, Landree and Thorsten. You two maggots aren’t fooling me. You’re not fans of this dreck loser. You just hate Glenn Beck worse.

  • Crassus

    Horsecrap, Junior. Jesse Ventura was running his fat mouth in a bar and got punched out. The guy who did the punching mentioned the incident in a book. Jesse’s reputation as a tough guy suffered and he went through all kinds of mental agony. ;) So he sues the guy’s widow, lies on the witness stand, and gets a bunch of dumbasses on the jury to believe his lies. Then he cashes in and says he was the wronged party. Drop your drawers and bend over, honey. You’ve got it coming.

  • Connor Kenway

    11 Navy SEALs testified that Chris Kyle was telling the truth Also Ventura had no evidence to counter it but his own word. but that is ok ingore case facts and go into liberal foaming at the mouth attack.

  • Connor Kenway

    So talking in the third person is reasonable to liberal trolls?

  • Connor Kenway

    The guy needs to be sued. Give the little jerk a taste of his own filth.

  • Anonymous

    Did you have anything specific to contribute regarding Ventura’s defending his reputation?

  • ThorsteinVeblen2012

    And yet the jury believed Jesse Ventura.

    A fact you seem to ignore.

  • Elena

    It’s one thing to sue Chris Kyle and quite another to sue his widow.

  • Connor Kenway

    The jury believed Gorge Zimmerman to and you liberals claim that was bull crap but since Chris Kyle was not one of you tho I guess it is ok to defend a 9/11 truther.

  • Connor Kenway

    Yeah the guy should not have won his case.
