Nothing makes a Tuesday better than hearing that one of your favorite actors may run for President.
In case you’re wondering, I am referring to the ever so handsome Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Yes, you read that right. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock may run for President in the 2020 election.
In a recent interview he was asked about the possibility to run for president and his response was that he wasn’t ruling it out.
“I saw Kamala Harris’ speech the other day and thought it was good,” he said. “Just for me, I lack the experience, I lack a lot of things. Certainly not right now.”
While it isn’t something for right now, he isn’t ruling that out for the future.
Johnson first took his name out of the running in a Rolling Stone article last year. Since then, he has kept the possibility in mind.
“I’m not ruling it out,” he said, “I’m not ruling out the idea if I could make a bigger impact somehow, or potentially surround myself with good people.”
His manager and ex-wife Dany Garcia, said the idea of Johnson pivoting into politics ran counter to their current focus.
“At this point, we’re not in politics, so why leverage this to make our audience feel that?” she said.
She was on the same page about the possible future candidacy though, saying:
“If we were committed, we’d move the production company aside and say, ‘This is who we are,’” she said. “We have a relationship with the audience based upon a premise, and that’s why they chose to have a relationship with us. What’s my right to change that premise so that now you suddenly have a political relationship with me? You didn’t choose to have a political relationship. Maybe now they do. But it’s about respecting why you engaged with us.”
So, while this may not be something happening right now, it is something to potentially look forward to in the future.
I cannot tell you how excited this makes me. I think Dwayne could bring a lot to the table and let’s not disagree that he’d make one heck of a good looking president! 😉
