The Rock is one of the most famous faces on the planet, and some people can picture him living at the White House for a four-year stint, at least. This is a subject that he seemingly can’t avoid discussing nowadays.
People Magazine put Dwayne Johnson on top of their list of “100 Reasons to Love America.” Naturally, a lot of Americans would look toward The Rock as a future President. This is an honor that he has already spoken about, and he would accept the challenge. That doesn’t make him qualified for the job.
Bill Maher roasted the idea of celebrities getting into politics, because it isn’t their expertise. The Rock also made it clear when talking to People that he is:
“not a politician nor did I ever have political passions, and quite frankly I’m not sure I even have the patience or resignation to deal with the B.S. that comes with politics and politicians… But when 46 percent of Americans say they’re in favor of me becoming president, that forces me to humbly and respectfully stand up, listen and learn.”
The Rock has a lot of projects in the pipeline and he will have to squeeze in time for a WWE return, let alone a run for POTUS. Perhaps the day will come when The Rock does run for President of the United States.
This could also be a clever ruse to slowly heat things up for a big campaign announcement. Although The Rock did endorse Joe Biden this time around, he has learned toward the red side in the past. Some people might expect The Rock to be a different kind of candidate than he will turn out to become if elected.
Should The Rock run for POTUS or leave the job to someone else? Sound off in the comments!
