Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for President?
Ronald Reagan was an actor, we have had Jesse “The Body” Ventura governor of Minnesota, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the governor of California, now Donald Trump as our President. Celebrity leaders are a thing now. Why not Dwayne “THE ROCK” Johnson as our next president? In the new issue of “GQ“, he says it’s a “real possibility” he could run someday.
As for affiliation, he’s registered as an independent, and he refused to endorse either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton last year, even though they both asked for his blessing.
He said: “I feel like I’m in a position now where my word carries a lot of weight and influence, which of course is why they want the endorsement. But, it might sway an opinion, which I didn’t want to do.”
Asked how he thinks Trump is doing, he was pretty diplomatic, but he does say,
“I’d like to see a better leadership. I’d like to see a greater leadership.”
And he also says he completely disagrees with Trump’s travel ban.
One other interesting fact about The Rock: He’s African American on his father’s side, and Samoan on his mother’s. In the last census, the number of Americans who claimed that ethnicity was 50,308, which is just above… 0% of the population.
