Could 'The Rock' Be Our The Next President?

Rock the vote Johnson who wrestled as'The Rock' told Jimmy Fallon in May that he would bring'poise' not'noise to the presidency but said 2020 was'a long ways away

He added: "While there has been significant discussion of the possibility of The Rock running for President, there is now no avenue for supporters to channel their energies and get Mr Johnson to notice the groundswell of support he has in the grassroots". Back in May, he appeared on Saturday Night Live as a buff Obama, standing at a podium labeled "The Rock Johnson 2020".

Speculation around the Rock as a presidential nominee ticked up in May, when GQ published an article with the headline "Dwayne Johnson for President!"

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one step closer to the White House after the necessary paperwork required for a 2020 presidential bid was filed on the former wrestler's behalf.

It's real. It's on the books. (Vanity Fair has reached out to his representatives for comment.) But you don't have to look far to see that the guy has been dropping hints like insane.

Johnson has been critical of President Donald Trump, remarking, "I'd like to see a better leadership", and stating that he "completely disagree [s] with" Trump's controversial Muslim ban. "Taking responsibility for everybody".

Instead, the most noticeable inconvenience that Boston-based users of Penn Station might notice is more crowded Amtrak trains. Penn Station, which Amtrak took over in the 1970s, handles twice as many daily train movements, about 1,300, as it did then.

But a Hollywood persona becoming president is not all that far-fetched. "And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out".

Lest you think this is outlandish, do remember who our current president is, and also don't forget that The Rock has made it known he's not joking about a potential 2020 run.

Does this mean he really is serious about running for President?

By this point, the world getting The People's President, the Most Electrifying President in Politics Entertainment, would not even be a shock.
