Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura on Wednesday blasted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the U.S. Supreme Court
“Corporations have no soul, all they have is a bottom line,” he said on Talking Liberally. “People need to understand that. When the Supreme Court ruled that corporations have the same equal rights as individuals and when they ruled that money is free speech, that was the lowest day in our country’s history in my opinion.”
Ventura said if the United States elected Romney, they would be electing Gordon Gecko, the greed-driven corporate raider from the film Wall Street.
“What Bain or whatever it was he worked for, that’s exactly what their job was. They were hostile corporate take overs. They would take over companies, they would shred them, and make huge profits and send everybody to the unemployment line.”

Feds investigating whether Rudy Giuliani was a victim of foreign spy effort targeting Trump
President Donald Trump's defense attorney is not only a subject in a criminal investigation, but is also part of a counterintelligence probe into whether he was compromised by a foreign power, CNN reported Wednesday.
This is an investigation that goes far longer and back further than we realized and also that it’s much broader than we initially thought," CNN senior justice correspondent Evan Pérez reported.
"One of the things we’re getting a picture of, a better picture of is this involves not only Giuliani’s financial entanglements with allegedly corrupt Ukrainian figures but also counterintelligence angle is there to this and the idea that perhaps Rudy Giuliani and some of his business dealings were part of essentially an influence operation, a foreign influence operation with a target being the Trump White House," he reported.
Trump smears Kurdish allies as ‘more of a terrorist threat’ than ISIS during unhinged White House rant
President Donald Trump attacked America's Kurdish allies during a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella.
Trump repeatedly said the Kurds were "no angels" in his comments.
"The PKK, which is a part of the Kurds, as you know, is probably, worse at terror and more of a terrorist threat in my ways than ISIS.
"So it's a very, semi-complicated -- not too complicated if you're smart -- but it's a semi-complicated problem," Trump said. "I think it is a problem that we have very nicely under control."
Biden finally unloads on Trump for smearing his son: ‘Release your tax returns or shut up’
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday blasted President Donald Trump for an ongoing attack on his son Hunter.
At a press conference in Ohio, Biden was asked if he had done enough to stop his son from taking a retainer from a company in Ukraine.
But the former vice president insisted that "corruption" in Trump's government should be the immediate focus.
"He is running the most corrupt government in the history of the United States of America," Biden charged. "He is running the most corrupt government in the history of the United States of America."
Biden then turned to the camera as if he were speaking directly to Trump.
