Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura blasted Fox News on Wednesday night for allegedly banning him from the news network.

“Those tough guys from Fox won’t have me on,” he told Current TV host Joy Behar, saying MSNBC had banned him as well. “They refuse to have me on. I think it is because I can’t be intimidated. You know, they live on intimidation over there, and they’ve got to look me eye to eye, and like I told Sean Hannity once, I said, ‘Remember Sean, you gotta sleep sometime.’”

Ventura also said he would rather take a bullet to the head than vote for either President Barack Obama or Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“These gangs have sold out our country,” he explained, referring to the Democratic and Republican Parties. “They are totally bought and sold.”
