A jury awarded former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura $1.8 million for a defamation suit he filed against Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. The SEAL, who was killed on a shooting range in February 2013, claimed in a bestselling book that he had punched Ventura in a bar fight after the governor made derogatory remarks about the elite military unit. RT's Ameera David speaks with Ventura to get his thoughts on the win, as well as the backlash from pushing forward with the lawsuit after Kyle's death.
