Dwayne Johnson Clears Up Recent Rumors for Future Presidency1 year ago by Hadiya Cambridge in Trending
The thought of having Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson would not only be sexy as hell but also pretty cool. A wrestler turned actor turned President? Yes Please.
Whatever rumors….and dreams we had of Johnson becoming our next President has been officially debunked by the actor himself. In a recent interview for the May issue of the Rolling Stones, Johnson was questioned about the gossip surfacing that he will be running for 2020.
I mean, look,” Johnson says to RS, “people are very excited, and it’s so flattering that they’re excited. I think it’s also a function of being very unsatisfied with our current president. But this is a skill set that requires years and years of experience. On a local level, on a state level and then on a national level. I have the utmost respect for our country and that position, and I’m not delusioned in any way to think, ‘Oh, absolutely, if Trump can do it, I can do it, and I’ll see you in 20-whatever, get ready.’ Not at all.”
Johnson regretfully reveals he did not participate in the 2016 election but wish he had done so.
“I think in a lot of people’s minds, what Trump has proved is that anybody can run for president,” Johnson states. “And in a lot of people’s minds, what he’s also proved is that not everybody should run for president. What I’m sensing now is that we have to pivot back to people who have a deep-rooted knowledge of American history and politics and experience in policy and how laws get made. I think that pivot has to happen.”
Looks like our dreams will never come true…Who would you like to see running for the oval office next? Let us know in the comments below.
