Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson confirms presidential race is now ‘out of order’

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had many titles in his career, from college football star to WWE champion to box office superstar, but one title he no longer cares about is that of president.

Years after teasing a possible run for the White House, Johnson told “CBS Sunday Morning” that his political aspirations have taken precedence over his family.

“It’s not on the table,” Johnson said. “It’s not on the table. I will say this because it requires the B side: I love our country and everyone. I also love being a dad. And that’s the most important thing for me, being a dad. Number one. Especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives.

Johnson remembers being on the road and “so busy I was away for many years” when her eldest daughter was younger.

“And that’s what the presidency would do,” he added. “So my number one priority is my girls.”

Johnson is always busy these days, as the star of the upcoming DC Comics movie “Black Adam” and the founder of Teremana Tequila. He’s also been the subject of constant rumors of a potential return to the wrestling ring, with next year’s WWE WrestleMania taking place in California with a Hollywood theme.

Johnson talked about his political aspirations for years before finally abandoning them. In 2017, he told Ellen DeGeneres that he was “seriously considering” running for president. The ongoing sitcom about his life, “Young Rock,” contains episodes with scenes set in 2032, where he is campaigning for the presidency.

In 2021, he told USA Today that he “would consider a presidential election in the future if that’s what the people wanted.”

Those thoughts are now a thing of the past, and the only title he really cares about is “Dad.”
