Ventura was interviewed on the CBS Minneapolis affiliate WCCO when he expressed his desire to be Trump's number two, and offered the candidate some advice:
"If Donald Trump were to ask me to be his running mate, I would give it very serious consideration because anything to break up the status quo of this country. This country needs to be shaken up. It needs to be shaken to its very core, and Donald Trump is doing that."Ventura believes having his name on the ticket would bring Trump more votes (from people who hate war heroes' widows?)
"My advice to him at this point would be, 'Don't you dare back down, cause if you back down now, you're finished. They tell you defense wins Super Bowls, but that's not presidential. Offense can win the presidency."
"We've been friends for about 25 years, so I don't know if it's in the cards or not, but it just went through my head, 'Boy would that ever get the Republicans angry,'"Perhaps because of jealousy or a desperate attempt to pull himself out of the former celebrity trash heap he so richly deserved, Ventura launched a defamation suit against the estate of the war hero, over a incident mentioned in Chris Kyle's book. Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. Military History, and the incident related in his book American Sniper doesn't even name the ex-Minn. Gov/Professional Conspiracy theorist/Scumbag. As reported in the NY Times.
Although verdicts in such cases are customarily unanimous, both sides agree to the split verdict of 8 to 2, which was reached after more than a week of deliberations. Jurors awarded Mr. Ventura $500,000 for defamation and $1.3 million for what was termed the author’s unjust enrichment.In effect a guy who doesn't need the cash took $1.8 million from a Navy Seal's widow. Can anyone really believe that this self-serving scumbag actually served this country? And now he wants to be V.P. , I doubt that even Donald Trump isn't THAT crazy. Instead Ventura should be called back to active duty so he can face a court martial for defacing the uniform he once wore.
