The Rock Says He Could Actually Run For President




Want to know the cold, hard truth about the chances of The Rock wining a Presidential election? It is very likely that we could, one day, have a President Dwayne Johnson. If Donald Trump happened, then why not The Rock? At the very least, he's more popular and more well liked than Trump ever was and ever will be.  As the GQ article states "If Trump's election proved that celebrities can just dive right in—they don't even have to make a pit stop as governor of California before the presidency." Now, question is, will he run as a Democrat or Repubican?

"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 to run for president. "I think that it's a real possibility.

Last year, both presidential campaigns reached out to him for his endorsement, he says. “Which I did not give. I felt like…and give me a second, because I've never said this publicly, so…” He stops to gather his thoughts. He's sitting now in a cabana on the set of Ballers while crew members wheel around towering lights. “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. 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—and these are all conversations I have with myself, in the gym at four o'clock in the morning—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.” He says he told both the Trump and Clinton camps that he wasn't making an endorsement, that he preferred to see Americans make up their own minds.

Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody. [If I didn't agree with someone] on something, I wouldn't shut them out. I would actually include them. The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it. It's hard to categorize right now how I think he's doing, other than to tell you how I would operate, what I would like to see.
