Jesse Ventura Continues to DISRESPECT Late American Hero Chris Kyle With This Latest Tirade

I used to have a love/hate relationship with Jesse Ventura when he was a professional wrestler years ago. He was larger than life and had so many fans.

He then became governor of Minnesota which shocked so many. His political stance seemed to rock both establishments and more people seemed to love him for being against the norm and not a politician.

Former pro wrestler Jesse Ventura pauses while speaking about his book "They Killed Our President" October 4, 2013 in Washington, DC. Ventura, who is considering a long-shot independent run for the White House, said he would immediately clear the intelligence leakers Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden if elected. Ventura, who served as governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003 and is an avid proponent of conspiracy theories, said it was "wonderful" for individuals within government to expose abuses.

What has happened to this guy? Has wrestling damaged his thinking process? He’s not picking up any support along the way so why continue this?

Ventura had previously been successful in suing Chris Kyle’s widow, Taya, for $1.8 million in a defamation lawsuit, to the dismay of his former fans and Americans who supported the combat sniper. Ventura has made a consistent slam against Kyle calling him “no hero.”

“Tell me we haven’t lost our moral compass when liars like Chris Kyle are turned into heroes,” he said. “He’s not a hero. You cannot lie and have honor.”

Ventura also claimed that Kyle’s widow didn’t have to pay a nickel when Ventura won $1.8 million in a defamation suit against the fallen Navy SEAL. According to Ventura, insurance paid for everything.

“Insurance paid everything for them,” he says. “They ain’t out one nickel. I’m out three-quarters of a million dollars. That’s what it cost me to go to court for 3 ¹/₂ years.”

He added, bitterly, “And their . . . attorneys tried to win the case in the court of public opinion rather than the courtroom.”

It seems Ventura wants or needs to be back on TV for his ego.

Ventura has turned into a sad old man that thinks people really care what he says.
