"So I ask you Oprah, better yet, I'm begging you Oprah please cast me onto your show, Oprah. It is so crucial that the world hears God's word for the fate of humanity, for the fate of mankind, for the fate of me seeing my son grow older, please Oprah I'm begging you," Ortega-Hernandez said in the video.
Ortega-Hernandez was arrested on Wednesday by police in Pennsylvania acting on a tip given to the Secret Service. Authorities say he shot about nine rounds at the White House from his car on 17th Street last Friday night and abandoned his car a few blocks away.
In the video, apparently recorded by a student at Idaho State University, Ortega-Hernandez rants about the "gangster Olympics," Discovery channel's Shark Week, his advocacy for the legalization of marijuana, and his opposition to the U.S. stealing oil from other countries.
"Please do not take me as a joke or as a deception. I have never felt so sure that I was sent here by God to lead the world to Zion," Ortega-Hernandez says.
