Jesse Ventura: ‘I salute Colin Kaepernick’

I realize we can’t post every single comment from random celebrities about Colin Kaepernick, but I couldn’t help myself with this one. Jesse “The Body” Ventura, former governor of Minnesota (man, what a time), and more importantly former wrestler and announcer, decided to weigh in on Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the National Anthem.

Ventura served in the military and somehow managed to get elected governor of Minnesota back in 1998. It was an impressive feat, and seemed to set the stage for Arnold Schwarzenegger to run in California. What a time to be alive!

The Body keeps it pretty simple in this video.
