The Rock As President Of The United States Is Something We Can Definitely Get Behind!

 

The Rock As President Of The United States Is Something We Can Definitely Get Behind!

Now here’s a candidate we can definitely get behind! Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says running for president in 2020 is a ‘real possibility!’

Speaking to GQ magazine, the pro wrestler turned Hollywood star said it was about a year ago when he began thinking about running for office a lot more seriously. It was around the time an article was published in the Washington Post suggesting Johnson would do just as well as any other candidate.

“There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful,’ ” he told GQ.

“I didn’t want to be flippant,” he added about what his platform might be, like “We’ll have three days off for a weekend!” or “No taxes!”

GQ writer Caity Weaver says, “So, after all that consideration, Johnson doesn’t hesitate when I ask him whether he honestly might one day give up his life as the highest-paid movie star on earth — which is unquestionably easier, more fun, and more lucrative than being president of the United States — in order to run for office. ‘I think that it’s a real possibility,’ he says solemnly.”

Johnson didn’t reveal which party he might seek the nomination from but he is a registered independent who has been affiliated with both the Republican and Democratic parties. As for who he voted for last year, however, Johnson kept that a secret, although both parties sought his public endorsement which he wasn’t willing to give.

“I feel like I’m in a position now where my word carries a lot of weight and influence, which of course is why they want the endorsement,” he said. “But I also have a tremendous amount of respect for the process and felt like if I did share my political views publicly, a few things would happen … I felt like it would either (a) make people unhappy with the thought of whatever my political view was. And, also, it might sway an opinion, which I didn’t want to do.”

I think it’s our duty to help Johnson get to the White House in 2020, so what do you say we start our own hashtag movement? #therock2020 or #ROCK4POTUS
