Sarah Palin Slams ‘Jackass’ Jesse Ventura On Navy SEAL Lawsuit

Recommended Posts


After last month’s verdict awarding Jesse Ventura nearly $2 million in a defamation lawsuit against sniper Chris Kyle’s estate, many red-blooded Americans were angry that Ventura had the gall to go after a widow and child who had already lost so much.

Sarah Palin, in typical fashion, cut to the chase in a video released on her .

Palin also said, according to Breitbart:

“Hey tough guy, Jesse Ventura, your feelings were hurt because you perceived your reputation was besmirched by words in a book?”


“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.”

There’s no way one could misunderstand Palin’s point, but just in case, she reiterated it.

“You went after the bereaved family, whining that you, a public figure, were defamed in Chris’s book, ‘American Sniper,’ even though Chris never wrote your name in the book. Since when are public figures immune from hearing something we don’t like, anyway? Chris always stood up for every American. Now we’re standing up for him.”


There are times in life when circumstances allow one’s true character to shine through. In the case of Jesse Ventura, his “shaking down” of a widow and her child was more defaming than anything Chris Kyle or his buddies could have possibly said about him.

In a sense Sarah Palin is right in the fact that the mother and ther children have to take the blows by the decision.  However,  Chris Kyle is a sniper.  He should have known more than anybody that if you live by the sword, you may die by the sword.  In this court case it would be that if you live by the pen you may die by the pen.   Chris Kyle did not mention "the body" in his book by name but on numerous talk shows he defamed Jesse.  I don't feel like it is very hero like to tell stories about how you sucker punched a Navy Seal in a bar.  I also don't feel it is very hero like to have a tell all of all your successful snipperings from your war time days.  Is Chris Kyle making the stories up?  Including the nickname he gave himself?  I don't know.  Maybe they are just stories like the one he made up about punching our Jesse the body.  Maybe Chris Kyle got what he deserved.  Although I don't think his wife and kids did.
