Our ‘Next President’ Is Hiding From Drones in Mexico

Jesse Ventura: “The drones can’t find me.”



Jesse Ventura doesn't lack for confidence. The camo-clad former Minnesota governor told Larry King last week that a Jeb Bush-Hillary Clinton matchup would "pave the way for Jesse Ventura to be the next president."

But before he moves into the White House, Ventura believes he needs to spend some time on the run south of the border.

"I move about with my TV show so that the drones can't find me, and that you won't know exactly where I am, as long as we have solar power and we can reach the satellite," Ventura told CNBC on Tuesday. He did not specify who is searching for him or why they might want to find him.


And while he isn't in-country, Ventura wants Americans to recognize his contribution to the economy. "I'm a job creator in the village, creating jobs, putting Mexicans to work," he said. "I'm stopping them from running across the border and taking our jobs."

Apparently not overly concerned with tempering his rhetoric, the onetime professional wrestler also compared the U.S. to East Berlin.
