Howard Stern is no stranger to politics. He had a run for New York Governor decades ago, but he pulled out when he didn’t want to make his tax records public. Little did he realize that he would still be giving out political advice to celebs so many years later.
The Rock is interested in running for President of the United States. This is something that he has not turned down, however, Stern had a big warning for Dwayne Johnson. The legendary radio personality said that people will think that The Rock is on their side. He might get their vote, but when they realize what The Rock really stands for then they might turn on him.
“You know what it is with these guys is that they don’t understand, once you run for office, you actually have to give an opinion.”
Howard Stern said that Johnson is “a lovely guy” and “the most non-controversial human being.” Voters still want to talk about the big issues and even The Rock’s natural charisma won’t stop those conversations from starting.
“People in the military assume The Rock is pro-military. People in the police force believe The Rock is a law and order guy. People who are Trumpy believe The Rock really secretly loves Trump. The people who are liberals are going ‘You know what? The Rock is with us.’”
Stern then said that as soon as Johnson is forced to take a stand on an issue, then he might find himself in a situation where, “Oops! Suddenly people don’t like The Rock.”
We’ll have to see what happens in the future. The Rock has a few film projects lined up and he hasn’t publicly announced any political aspirations. The idea is still out there, if you smell what the future POTUS is cooking.
