Jesse Ventura 2016 presidential run? “Maybe!”


In an appearance on CNN’s Crossfire, WWE Hall of Famer and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura said that he’s thinking of running for president in 2016.

“Quickly, yes or no. Are you ready for president 2016?” asked the host. “Maybe,” answered Ventura, who declared himself a member of no parties.

In one of the backstage segments filmed for the show’s Instagram account, Ventura was asked about the current U.S. government shutdown and he said that it’s despicable because they’re being paid to do the job and they’re not doing it. He also said that the people should not pay taxes since the government is not operational.

Ventura just published a new book titled “They Killed Our President: 63 Reasons to Believe There Was a Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK” which is available to order from
