Listen: Donald Trump, Jesse Ventura, President Trump discussed on The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast
"Let's talk about the Jesse Ventura factor. I feel like Jesse Ventura was a trailblazer in in a way that deserves that deserved more media attention during the rise of Donald Trump to the Republican nominee in the presidency. You touched on that you wrote about that in the book. In Utah. There's differences between them, but man, there are some similarities and parallels between venture is rise to Minnesota governor and what Trump did, how much do you think Trump follow that and how much do you think what Ventura did pave the way? Or was it just more of a coincidental parallel of personalities? One of tidbits that that made researching the book so enjoyable to go through newspapers and news archives. And one of the things that I was really fascinated by with that Trump at at least one rally spoke on behalf of venture. So they had that political connection right away. There is, of course, stints wear been venture, which would sort of interact in the interplay of, you know, maybe could be the next president, those those sorts of things along the way. But really, I think entr Ventura m Trump was was considering. Running for president. So it had to have been a some influence on immediately, but I think it stuck in the back of his head as a dark horse candidate of Basset talker. Even some incoming of professional wrestling. Do you think about it sort of on its surface but forget about, is that that you're actually did have political experience and although brief, he had proven himself or ready in in Minnesota to be a political candidate. So it wasn't as shocking scene, but somebody from an outsider who had success, I think, inspired Trump. What about what changed about your perception of Donald Trump you followed in real time, everything about Donald Trump, wrestling wise, probably and otherwise, at least perfectly and maybe more. So than that in researching the book. What surprised you most that you learned about Donald Trump along the way researching this book? That's a great question. Fifty such a sport facing person.."
