Rejoice America! The good folks at Ora.tv -the same people who brought you Larry King Now on RT -are rolling out a new show that will almost definitely save the nation’s soul. Off The Grid with Jesse Ventura, the former Minnesota governor and potential 2016er, is set to debut in January -and if this holiday promo is any indication, it’s going to be awesome.
Ventura, per usual, has no problem mixing up politics and entertainment -talking up a potential 2016 Presidential run even as he launches his new show. His most recent e-mail blast calls on citizens to “be vigilant and vote” to “replace these DemoCRIPs and ReBLOODlicans with independent, free thinkers who aren’t bought by Super PACs and special interest groups.” That outsider message, plus the inclusive, populist appeal on display in the video above could make for a compelling candidacy, should Ventura actually run for President. But if you ask us, Jesse’s primary interest is getting people to tune in.
No word yet if this champion of liberty will, like Larry King, take to the Russian-owned RT channel to broadcast his message.
