The Rock Has Dropped Another Hint About Running For President In 2020
The recent US election has shown people that you shouldn't rule out different possibilities and outcomes. The same structured tweet and Facebook status went viral, with the premise being that if a part-time novice can become president of the Land of the Free, then you can get that job in Maccies. No dream is too big, guys.
Anyway, the other side of the election has prompted the masses to call for other celebrities, such as Kanye West, to put themselves forward to take over The White House in 2020.
Another is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who would obviously be the most electrifying man in politics should he choose to build a campaign around #Boots2Asses, just bringing it and pie.
Earlier this year, before the clusterfuck of the now finished election, the actor hinted a few times at the possibility of him dipping his toes in the political squared circle. Now, at a press conference for his upcoming film Moana, he's given an update on the situation.
Cool piece on why I should run for President. Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck..https://t.co/JpkZ4w1eh3

"I wouldn't rule it out," the People's Champ said. "It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible. This past election shows that anything can happen."
Just imagine it. The room falls silent, the lights dim, and then, out of the darkness... "IF YAAAAAA SMEEELLLLLLLLLLLL..." It would make me watch every American political event there is.
Previously, The Rock told GQ: "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. 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."
Can you smell it? The People's President.
