Just in case you’ve forgotten, Jesse Ventura emerges from time to time to remind Americans that anyone — literally anyone — can be elected governor in this great country of ours.

Ventura, who seriously was elected governor of Minnesota, appeared on CNBC Tuesday to promote whatever cockamamie project he is currently involved in. Things got interesting when “Closing Bell” host Kelly Evans pressed Ventura, a 9/11 truther, for more details about where he was appearing from.

“Why are you in Mexico, Jesse? Where are you?,” Evans asked.

“I’m off the grid. 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,” Ventura said.

“This isn’t a hoax — you’re serious?” Evans followed up.

“I view the United States today much like East Berlin. And I’m off the grid,” Ventura replied.

Not too long ago, The Daily Caller sat down with Jesse for a very bizarre 90 minutes.
