With the deliriously shitty state of affairs we’re in from top to bottom, Captain Freedom has reported to wardrobe. Governor Jesse Ventura has spoken with Chris Jericho on his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast to talk about his current ambitions. Which include running for President.
“I tell them, ‘Look, if you want the key to whether I’m going to run for office, look at what my hair is doing cause I said, ‘If I’m gonna run, you’re going to see me get a haircut,’” Ventura said.
“Now it’s more serious than ever,” Ventura continued. “I mean, I dabbled with the Green Party two years ago ’til I found out they were split and were completely dysfunctional. But I’ve been communicating and working very close now with Andrew Yang, and Andrew Yang is the real deal and Andrew Yang is forming what’s going to be called the Forward Party. And we’re calling it that because we want to look forward into the future — we don’t want the past, we don’t want nothing to do with the [Democrats] and [Republicans]. They’re the past, this is going to be the Forward Party, and we’re hoping to get ballot access and candidates on the slate and have a presidential candidate and a convention by the 2024 election. And I’ll tell you why, Chris, right now, 60% of the country doesn’t want [Joe] Biden or [Donald] Trump.”
Ventura has been a vocal critic of President Trump, including fairly recently. This will probably hurt his chances.
