Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is still regarded as one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the history of the business. He is also the highest-paid actor in Hollywood as all of his films do incredibly well at the Box Office. Many fans have wanted The Rock to run for President of the USA and even The Rock said it would be an honor.
However, it seems not everyone is on board with seeing The Rock become the People’s President. While speaking on the latest episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert talked about The Rock running for President .
Colbert voiced his displeasure at the thought of The Rock even running for President, stating that The Rock wouldn’t even like the role.
“Look, folks, I love Dwayne ‘Rock’ the Johnson as much as the next middle-aged man who loves Fast Cars Go Zoom. But for the love of Ludacris, Dwayne, we don’t need another celebrity in the White House! Just ’cause people love something doesn’t mean we should hand it the nuclear codes. That’s why we’ve never elected President Surprise Onion Ring in Your French Fries.”
We’ve already have a couple of Presidents Johnson. We’d have to call his administration 2 POTUS 2 Prez: Executive Drift.” Also, “no one would come to our state dinners,” as the meals would be “12 pounds of steamed cod and a blender full of creatine powder.”
Bottom line, Dwayne, you won’t even like the gig. “You’re an action star. Being a president is boring. It’s all legislation and diplomacy and paperwork. And as all we know, paper… beats Rock.”
There is still a lot of time for The Rock to really consider whether he will go ahead running for the President of the USA. We will have to see what decision he will make, as it is likely not everyone necessarily wants to see him as the President.
