Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been making a lot of noise this week about the possibility that he might run for president in 2020, but is he serious?
It was the finale of Saturday Night Live’s 42nd season last night. Johnson celebrated his 5th hosting appearance on SNL to an adoring audience that applauded his announcement that he plans to run for president. When Tom Hanks joined him on-stage, the two claimed that they would run together, and the crowd went wild.
Johnson and Hanks listed the fictitious reasons why they would be qualified to run for office, which included fighting in WWII on several occasions and saving the world on multiple occasions, and stated that a Johnson/Hanks ticket would really bring the country together during these divisive times. It was all joking and laughter, including Johnson’s new tag line: “More poise, less noise”.
The show went on to feature skits that made a mockery of President Trump’s administration, including one scene that featured a homosexual moment between the show’s portrayal of the president and White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Although Johnson was playful last night, he has been serious in other interviews this week when asked about running in 2020 against President Trump. Do you think Dwayne Johnson will really run for president, and if so, can he win? We’d like to know, so please take our latest poll.
