If I could have Chris Kyle punch him again I would. Jesse Ventura is a nutjob, pure and simple. The SEAL community has disowned him, he gave up his citizenship, he's a "truther," and a fake wrestler. Using him to make a point is like using fingerpaints to re-create a Picasso.

So torn on Jesse...
I want to believe he is who he claims to be. On the other hand, if corruption was as rampant as some of us want to believe, would TPTB allow a person trying to expose them to take to the air waves??? Surely they would have the means to squash A TV series if they own/fund/control the media.
He says all the right things but I can't fully trust him. No where near as bad as Alex Jones, but I'm afraid their paychecks might be signed by the same man.

For Ventura to WH**E himself on a liberal socialist like Joy Bahar's show is sad and purity much takes all credibility he had away. That does not mean what he belives is not true, it just means I have no use for someone who would sell there soul to get there word out there and call someone like Bahar "FRIEND".
The only reason she let him on was to make a fool out of him but he talks over someone so much that did not work very well...................they made fools of each other, no class on either side.

An WWF poser is as candid a politician as the US has today. Speaks volumes.
Ventura served as a Navy Underwater Demolition Team member during the Vietnam War. He later embarked on a professional wrestling career from 1975 to 1986, taking the stage name Jesse "The Body" Ventura. He had a long tenure in the World Wrestling Federation as a performer and color commentator, and was inducted into the company's Hall of Fame in 2004. While involved with wrestling, Ventura began a successful film career, appearing in films such as 1987's Predator.
Ventura first entered politics as Mayor of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota from 1991 to 1995. He was the Reform Party candidate in the Minnesota gubernatorial election of 1998, running a campaign centered on grassroots events and unusual ads that urged citizens not to "vote for politics as usual". The campaign was successful, and Ventura served from January 4, 1999, to January 6, 2003, declining to run for a second term.
After leaving office, Ventura became a visiting fellow at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He has also hosted a number of TV shows and has written several political books. Ventura currently lives in both Dellwood, Minnesota and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
