When I interviewed Jesse Ventura last month, I asked the former governor of Minnesota/current Ora.TV host/perennial potential presidential candidate if he'd heard the impression James Adomian does of him. He had not. Fair enough; Adomian regularly rolls out the Ventura voice in his stand-up, and when appearing on podcasts, but he has only does a few videos that demonstrate how comprehensive it is.
Here's the latest video, which absorbs and regurgitates everything Ventura has been saying about maybe running for president.
It's the little things—the strangled pronunciation of "that," the answering of a phone with a barked "yup?"—that make it accurate.
