Sean Hannity: He shocked the nation back in 1998 when he stormed onto the political scene and won Minnesota’s race. Now former Minnesota governor, pro wrestler and Navy SEAL, Jesse “The Body” Ventura is considering perhaps another political comeback? His book, “Don’t start the revolution without me” describes his outrage at the state of affairs in the U.S. It is now out in paperback.
Good to see you.
Jesse Ventura: Good to see you, Sean, always.
Sean Hannity: I’ll tell you, he has been yelling at me ever since he walked into the green room today.
Jesse Ventura: I don’t yell at anyone. I speak to people. It’s your reputation that precedes you.
Sean Hannity: You were just right on me. Well, you said you didn’t think you would like me until you met me. Didn’t you say that to me?
Jesse Ventura: Yeah.
Sean Hannity: What didn’t you like about me?
Jesse Ventura: I don’t always care for how you operate and the bullying of guests and things like that.
Sean Hannity: I don’t bully, oh stop. I couldn’t bully you for a million. I couldn’t bully you. You’d slap me down so hard.
Jesse Ventura: You can bully other people. You do it to other people and I get irritated when I see that at home.
Sean Hannity: You say you have been out surfing the past 6 months. Have you really been in Mexico surfing for six months?
Jesse Ventura: No. Unfortunately only for three months because my brother in law was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease on October 2nd and he passed on January 14th. So I didn’t get to Mexico till the end of January because he was my wife’s younger brother and she stayed home and took care of him until his passing. It’s a horrible disease, it’s an awful disease.
