I know Jesse Ventura. I’ve worked with Jesse Ventura. Jesse Ventura isn’t really a friend of mine, but I certainly know the caller to Midday today claiming to be Jesse Ventura is no Jesse Ventura.
He wanted to ask Al Franken a question. Listen for yourself:
How can you tell it’s not the former governor? The first time he says “Minnesota” he gets the Ventura pronunciation wrong, so he overcompensates the second time he says it.
In any case, when you call Midday, don’t pretend to be somebody else.
