Would You Vote for The Rock for POTUS?
According to Rolling Stone Magazine, The Rock AKA Dwayne Johnson has been having secret political meetings and is considering a run for the nation's highest office. His quotes lend you to believe that this is a real possibility in the future, but not in 2020. Here is one quote from Johnson in the Rolling Stone article:
I mean, look, people are very excited, and it's so flattering that they're excited. I think it's also a function of being very unsatisfied with our current president. But this is a skill set that requires years and years of experience. On a local level, on a state level, and then on a national level. I have the utmost respect for our country and that position, and I'm not delusioned in any way to think, 'Oh, absolutely, if Trump can do it, I can do it, and I'll see you in 20-whatever, get ready.' Not at all.
The "secret meetings" are referenced in the article. He's been taking them with all three major parties at all levels of government, and claims to be using them as an opportunity to learn and listen.
So, what does Dwayne Johnson have that any good President should?
He's an extremely hard worker who has had some serious success in every challenge he has accepted in life. He played college football at the University of Miami. If not for some serious injuries, he would probably have been in the NFL. He is, of course, one of pro wrestling's biggest stars of all time, and now is a box office golden ticket. No matter how bad his movies are, he sells tickets. Some are really good, by the way, but he does make some junk.
What does he lack that a Presidential candidate should have?
Experience is the answer, he has none. The country seems to not be interested in experience anymore, which is probably why so many politicians are approaching him. The sad truth is that if you choose the right celebrity, someone like The Rock, and you pit him against a poorly chosen, seasoned, D.C. insider, he could win, and win big. The names that the Democrats and Republicans always bring up to run for President are people we don't like and don't trust. All the choices seem divisive. So the equation goes like this:
Divisive, far left or far right candidate versus the Rock + careful timing = "The people's eyebrow" running around the White House calling people "Jabronis."
