From Wrestler To Author - My9 New Jersey

From Wrestler To Author

Posted: Updated:
Paramus, New Jersey (MY9NJ) -

Former wrestler and Governor of Minnesota, Jesse “The Body” Ventura was in Paramus, New Jersey promoting his new book called “They Killed Our President”, which is about commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.

Ventura, who is known for being very outspoken said, “I just want it to be officially on the record that for whatever its worth, that 100 years from now, you’ll know the 38th governor of Minnesota, did not believe the war on commission and did not believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone or maybe didn’t act at all.”

Ventura stated that he is completely done with the two party systems, but if he was to enter the debate to run for President as an independent, he has no doubt that he would win.

Although many people like him and follow him, whether he would be able to rally up votes to become a political figure again is no easy feat.

On the subject of New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie, Ventura doesn’t shy away from talking about his weight. “I don’t particularly think that your governor would make that good of a wrestler just simply because he is big and over-weight.” He said.

“They Killed Our President” has been rated 4 out of 5 stars from Barnes and Noble, and has attracted more than 200 people to the book signings.
