We’re not even one year into Donald Trump’s presidency, and it seems like it’s been twenty. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. And by light at the end of the tunnel, we mean that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is still considering that presidential run he teased at the beginning of the year, officially launching it with Tom Hanks as his running mate. And yes, we now live in a world where a pro wrestler potentially becoming president of the United States can be considered a light at the end of the tunnel.
The Rock was at Los Angeles Comic Con to promote Jumanji, and he was asked by a fan about his campaign.
“I think the ‘People’s President’ has a really nice ring to that,” Johnson replied, according to Entertainment Weekly. “I’ll just say that.”
While some might have found it ridiculous just a few years ago to believe that a pro wrestler could become president, that was before WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump won the election. Trump’s wrestling pedigree is nearly as impressive as The Rock’s, going all the way back to WrestleMania 4 and 5, which we held at Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. Former WWE CEO Linda McMahon serves on Trump’s cabinet as head of the Small Business Administration.
If The Rock were to challenge Trump in an election, whose side would McMahon be on? That all depends on who’s booking this @#$%, a question we’ve been asking ourselves for the past 10 months with no satisfactory answer.
We don’t know what The Rock’s politics are, or where he stands on important issues. Is he a Republican, or a Democrat? Would he seek peace with North Korea, or threaten to shine his boot up and stick it up Kim Jong Un’s candy ass? Has The Rock ever come to terms with his own pastry-themed homophobia and misogyny? The answers to these questions may be unknown, but we’re pretty certain things couldn’t possibly get any worse.
Oh no! Vice President Roman Reigns?! What have we done?! We take it back! Things can get worse after all!
