This doesn’t mean that he’s not running for the Presidency. It’s just that he’s not running when he’s needed the most.
When Dwayne “The Rock”/“Best Dad in the World” Johnson announced his intention to run for the United States Presidency in 2020, many thought that he would have a good chance of actually winning. After all, this is a country wherein a real-estate mogul turned reality television bureaucrat won against a more capable albeit flawed political operative. And don’t get us started with the shenanigans involving emails and extra-curricular activities. Those are different tangents altogether.
Two years into the 46th President’s administration, and Donald Trump has allowed the floodgates of celebritydom to aspire for the highest office in the land. Worthy but foolish challenges, you say? The Rock, meanwhile, comes up with summer hits and catchy video-sound bites one after the other. This is all a shame really: given that his current trending curve is skyrocketing upwards, he has announced his withdrawal from running for President in 2020. Here’s the man giving his take at the NY Premiere of his latest film, Skyscraper:
“Unfortunately I don’t see it happening in 2020. It’s a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills, There’s a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it’s not possible in 2020. I have so much respect for the position. It’s something that I seriously considered. What I need is time to go out and learn.”
The next three years promise to be a very busy time for the former champion wrestler. Just look at his slate for 2019. There’s the epic adventure about the Disneyland ride, Jungle Cruise, a sequel to Jumanji (more Jack Black please!), and that long awaited Black Adam role in DC’s Shazzam. We haven’t even included the planned spin-off to The Fast and the Furious franchise, Hobbs and Shaw. So what does this all mean? Can we write him off for a future run for the White House? Would Johnson-Hanks still be in play?
The Rock’s long time friend and business partner, Hiram Garcia, may have the final say:
“People called for Dwayne to run for President, and as that sentiment started to build up, he really started to respond to it and seriously thought about it. Dwayne really does care about the people, and he has great respect for the position that it requires and holds.”
Know this well: when the People’s Champ is finally prepared to take on the mantle as The Leader of the Free World, he would be much better informed and prepared than the current celebrity sitting in the Oval Office. Its either him, or Yeezy. Make the right choice, America.Please follow and like us:
