He was the 38th Governor of Minnesota from 1999-2003 after narrowly defeating the Republican and Democratic candidates. He only served one term. He describes himself to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative and is seen as a liberal-libertarian. He ran on the Reform Party ticket with Mae Schunk in the Minnesota gubernatorial election. Ventura is currently an Independent even though he can't make up his mind on whether the two-party system should be challenged or if there should even be any political parties. However Ventura likes Donald Trump, he hopes Trump and Bernie Sanders can both weaken the two party system. 
He had a short-lived weekend show on MSNBC titled "Jesse Ventura's America", lasting only for 2 months. Currently, he has a show on trvTV called "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura" where he digs into conspiracy theories, such as JFK's death, 9/11, and the internment camps. He actually tried to expose Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen in one of those episodes because, according to Ventura, Cohen was one of the sponsors of a bill that has to do with placing dissenters in internment camps despite that Cohen still denied any responsibility. What the bill in general is that it temporarily places citizens who were displaces by storms into FEMA camps and the internment camp was added to it. 
I think that’s what’s wrong with these one percenters. They have so much money they couldn’t spend it in their lifetime or their grandchildren’s lifetime, but it truly becomes a sickness (...) Is it work pushing numbers around on papers and moving decimal points? Or is it work washing dishes or digging a ditch? Because I highly doubt that any of these one percenters — I’d love to know how many of them began like I did, at Mama Rosa’s restaurant washing dishes for $1.50 an hour. That’s work, and it’s as hard of work washing them dishes all day long as it would be doing what these CEOs do. I’ve been a CEO, they don’t get their hands dirty very often,” Ventura added. “They go to all sorts of free meals all the time. They may put in the time and effort, but what you define as work, well, maybe it is mental work, but it is certainly not physical work.
