In his new movie, Concussion, Will Smith portrays a doctor who takes on the National Football League.
In a new interview, however, the actor says he has considered an even more monumental task: Taking on all political contenders... as a nominee for President of the United States!
Speaking to Tracy Smith of CBS and making a clear reference to Donald Trump, Smith said the following over the weekend:
"If people keep saying all the crazy kinds of stuff they’ve been saying on the news lately about walls and Muslims, they’re going to force me into the political arena."
Smith then asked the more famous Smith if he had a specific office in mind, to which he replied:
"I mean, I gotta be the President. Come on!"
Trump's views on women, immigrants and Muslims (along with the mere fact of his incomprehensible popularity) have caused many celebrities to consider a run for the Oval Office.
But is Will Smith serious?
He did tell Tracy Smith that his dream of being a movie star is accomplished, yet it feels "too small," adding:
"I realized that there was no way that I was put here just to be a movie star."
Might he have been put here to negotiate nuclear arms deals and NOT ban Muslims from entering America?
