Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson teases interest in running for president: 'it would be an honor'


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is not opposed to running for President.

The WWE athlete-turned-actor once again spoke about the idea of ​​diving into politics after a poll said he had a huge show of support from Americans who would back him for the President and Matthew McConaughey as Governor of Texas.

He reacted to the results on his social media accounts on Saturday, calling public support “humiliating.”

“🙏🏾🤯 I don’t think our founding fathers EVER imagined a six-four man, bald, tattooed, half-black, half-Samoan, drinking tequila, driving a van, dude carrying a fanny pack joining their club – but if that ever happened it would be my honor to serve you, the people 🙏🏾💪🏾, “Johnson tweeted.

This is not the first time that Johnson, 48, has considered a presidential election. Back in February, the “Jumanji” actor spoke to USA Today about the possibility – and he hasn’t ruled it out.

“I would consider a presidential election in the future if that’s what people wanted,” he told the outlet. “Really, I mean that, and I’m not at all flippant with my answer. It would depend on the people … So I would wait and listen.

He further explained, “I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear on the ground.”

The actor isn’t known to speak often about politics, but broke his own protocol last year to endorse Joe Biden for president when he first publicly supported a candidate.

After Biden’s victory, he shared another video on Instagram congratulating the president on his victory, admitting he felt “moved” when the news broke.

“The reason I got emotional yesterday was because of what I felt my vote represented. I was talking to Lauren, my wife, we were talking about our two little girls and that’s exactly what my vote represented,” he said at the time. .

Johnson continued, “My vote represented my little girls, my vote represented humanity, my vote represented decency, it represented the values ​​and principles we teach our little girls and my vote also represented, to me, the importance of just being a good, decent human being and how important that is. “
