The Rock would see it as an honor to run for POTUS, but Bill Maher isn’t about that at all. He recently unleashed during Real Time on the idea of celebrities running for office.
Bill Maher said that someone needs to explain why celebrities running for office is a “recurring nightmare.” He then said that The Rock, Caitlyn Jenner, Randy Quaid and any other celebrities considering a run for office all share one trait: “malignant narcissism.”
He said that The Rock proved “once and for all that weight lifters can drive,” which was one accomplishment that he did give him credit for. Maher said that they’re not professionals in government, and they shouldn’t be running for office. This was quite a hot take and he had a lot to say.
Obviously, any celebrity running for office will raise eyebrows. Bill Maher held little back during this 7-minute segment. You can check it out below.
