Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson has said that he would run for the White House “if the people want it” – which has been met with unanimous approval from fans.
Speaking with Erin Jensen of USA Today, Rocky added fuel to the fire he started back in 2017 when asked about running for presidency – this time pointing to the millions (and millions) of people in the USA as the ones who can guide his political path.
I would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.
Truly I mean that, and I’m not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people…So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground.
Dwayne is currently on a media appearance spree following the successful release of the coming-of-age comedy series ‘Young Rock’ which aired this week. In it, three actors portray The Rock at different stages of his life: Adrian Groulx (Johnson as a kid living in Hawaii), Bradley Constant (as a teen in Pennsylvania) and Uli Latukefu (as a University of Miami football player).
Johnson also appears in the series himself, bookending each episode in mock interviews with a journalist as he reflects on his life while campaigning for president in 2032 – yet more gasoline on the ever-growing suggestion that we may one day call The Rock, Mr President.
Despite having years’ worth of projects lined up in Hollywood, The Great One still hasn’t ruled out one day potentially vying for the Oval Office – following a select few WWE alumni who subsequently jumped into politics; Jesse Ventura, Linda McMahon, Kane & WWE Celebrity Hall of Famer Arnold Schwarzenegger.
President Dwayne Johnson? Can you imagine the speeches to the millions (& millions) of Rock fans outside the White House? Just picture the candidate debates where he tells his rivals to “know their role and shut their mouths”.
Dwayne in his first address to the people MUST (and I repeat must) start with…”Finally!……The Rock, has become…. President”
