The President of United States of America, Mr. Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Sounds good? It does for us! There’s even a chance that this becomes a reality. World’s most powerful country would become even stronger with a man nicknamed The Rock at its helm.
Dwayne Johnson himself loves this idea. He’s keeping it real, for now, saying that it won’t happen in a year or two, but down the stretch, who knows? Talking to Rolling Stone magazine Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star said: “I mean, look, people are very excited, and it’s so flattering that they’re excited.”
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Brahman Bull continued by saying: “I think it’s also a function of being very unsatisfied with our current President. But this is a skill set that requires years and years of experience. On a local level, on a state level and then on a national level. I have the utmost respect for our country and that position, and I’m not delusional in any way to think, ‘Oh, absolutely, if Trump can do it, I can do it, and I’ll see you in 20-whatever, get ready.’ Not at all.”
The speculation about Dwayne Johnson running for office started last May with GQ article titled simply: “Dwayne Johnson for President!” During that interview, he stated that there is a ‘real possibility‘ he will run for president.
Later that year he joked at Comic-Con saying that ’People’s President’ has a nice ring to it. One fan of Dwayne Johnson, Kenton Tilford, even created a campaign committee in West Virginia. He named it: “Run The Rock 2023.” Apparently, there are people ready to stand behind The Rock today.
Fast & Furious superstar is not ready to choose a running mate yet, but he’s having meetings with different people: “Republicans, Democrats, independents, mayors, strategists, you name it. Just soaking in and listening. Trying to learn as much as I possibly can. I entertain the thought, and thank you; I’m so flattered by it. But I feel like the best thing I can do now is, give me years. Let me go to work and learn.”
So, who knows? 2023, or any year beyond that is not too far away. Would you vote for Dwayne Johnson?
