Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Just Revealed He’s Seriously Considering Running For President In 2020

Not even four months into Trump’s presidency and we’re already talking about the next election, which isn’t that surprising. When is this going to be over already?

We’ve heard speculation about quite a few well known politicians taking center stage and running in 2020 (why does that feel so far away?), and now we’ve got someone new to add to the list: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, former WWE champion and current actor.

The Rock has been around quite a bit these days promoting the Fast and Furious franchise and the upcoming Disney movie Jungle Cruise. And yet, somehow, I still never imagined him as a political figure. Huh.

In an interview with GQ, The Rock said running for president in the future is “a real possibility.”

“A year ago, it started coming up more and more,” he told the magazine. “There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.’”

That’s right, The Rock is ready to walk away from his movie career and get more involved in politics

Honestly, I don’t know how to feel about this, and that’s not only because I’ve never seen a single movie with The Rock in it. I mean, sure, I think The Rock would do a great job compared to Trump, but we already made the mistake of letting one celebrity be in charge of the entire country. Maybe it’s time to leave the presidency to the people who have political experience. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
