Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Is Not Against Running For President

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Is Not Against Running For President

In all seriousness, and I know for some people it's a ball ache, but Donald Trump is the president of the United States. There's not much anyone can do about it, so we may as well get on with our lives, whether we like it or not, until 2020.

The realisation that a man, who up until about a year ago was just an eccentric TV personality, can not only take up politics as a hobby but also go all the way, has made people look to their favourite celebrities.

Will Smith teased us earlier in the year about turning to politics, and Kanye West's campaign for 2020 seems to be popular in the Twittersphere. Heck, last year, if Bez had remembered to register on the Electoral Commission to run as an independent candidate for Salford and Eccles, people in Manchester would be bopping around with maracas while wearing bucket hats as Step On plays. Well, y'know, a bit more than they already do.

But one man who people will get behind, simply because of who he is, is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The owner of the Smackdown Hotel, at the end of Jabroni Drive, after hanging that left on Know Your Role Boulevard, has not completely dismissed the idea of heading into that line of work.

"I'll be honest, I haven't ruled politics out. I'm not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure," The People's Champ said in an interview with GQ back in June. "I can't deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people's lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first."

Dwayne Johnson Condemns Donald Trump In Powerful Black Lives Matter Speech

While the idea of every appearance, event, dinner speech and so on beginning with "IF YAAAA SMELLLLLL" is an exciting prospect, I'm not quite sure that having The Rock as president would cut the mustard. Yeah, he's great, but I'm more interested in him taking #Boots2Asses and just bringing it more than anything else.

Dwayne doing this type of stuff is what we'd prefer.

It's similar to the old saying 'never meet your heroes'. Let's just amend it to 'never elect your heroes to run your country because, who knows, they might do a Tony Blair or something like that'.
