Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Doesn’t Mind Running For US President
Former professional wrestler and now actor, Dwayne Johnson, mentioned in an interview broadcast on the Today Show, that he would run for US President if he felt like he has enough support from fellow Americans. Personally, am interested to see how this fairs.
The 48-year old celebrity is one of the highest-paid and most popular actors in the US, and has been pondering about the possibility of running for US President for several years now. “I do have that goal to unite our country and I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that,” Dwayne Johnson answered when asked about his presidential ambitions in the interview.
Apparently, there was an online public opinion poll that was released prior to his remarks. The poll released by consumer trends company, Piplsay found some 46% of Americans would consider voting for him. Not surprised, as he is extremely popular among young and old American citizens.
Johnson also said in an Instagram posting: “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick-up truck driving, fanny-pack wearing guy joining their club – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.” – Can I just say that I love this man for this, he brings humour into everything he does!
Hopefully we get to see some progression into his “future plans”.
What do you think about this? Would you vote for Dwayne Johnson if you were an American citizen?
