Dwayne Johnson has already been named the Sexiest Man Alive.
But might he one day be named the Most Powerful Man in the World?
We aren't talking about his muscles here. We're talking about the ability he could have in the future to wield actual, enormous amounts of power...
... as President of the United States!
After all, Donald Trump just won the White House.
Is there any reason why Johnson should not set his sights on an Oval Office run in 2020?
“I used to say it jokingly, but every time I was asked, it was with a real genuine interest. And it was very earnest,” Johnson tells People of his interest in being POTUS.
He went on to pontificate as follows:
"I started to really think. Could I make a difference? Could I surround myself with really brilliant people to help me make decisions? Do I care about this country?
"And when the answers continued to come up yes, then I thought, there’s a good chance. Yeah, one day. Then we’ll do another interview like this."
Johnson has a lot in common with Donald Trump:
Both ooze charisma. Both have a giant social media following. Both have been inside a WWE ring.
But Johnson does not one big difference between him and the President-Elect, telling the publication:
“You have to be kind to people. I heard a quote when I was 15 years old, and I’ll never forget it: ‘It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice.'
"And when I heard that, I thought, ‘Well, maybe one day if I’m important, I want to remember that.’ Being kind and nice to people is the easiest thing that we can do.'"
Even before Trump was elected, Kanye West teased a run for President in 2020.
We'd have scoffed at the notion of Johnson (or any celebrity) in the White House just a few days ago, but how can we do so now?
Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. Literally anything is possible.
Soon after that monumental event took place, Johnson took to Instagram and wrote the following:
The most important thing we can do right now is be 100% committed to becoming a better country.
Many Americans are heart broken and many Americans are happy. Let's let the emotions of both sides settle and focus on our future. Concentrate on things we can control... work ethic, attitude, faith etc.
We all wear a lot of hats in today's crazy life we live and the one I'm most proud of is being a father to two beautiful young daughters.
At this time the only thing I can do for them is to continue to try my best to lead by example.
I don't know what it's like to be born into wealth, nor I do I know what it's like to be a career politician.
I do know what it's like to put in the hard work every day with my own two hands and earn my success from the sweat of my brow. That's all I know and all I'll continue to do.
Lead by example. I encourage all of you to do the same. We got this.
We're Americans and we forever "Hold the line.”
So there you have it.
He may not have Vin Diesel's vote, but until the Democrats come up with someone better, he sure has ours. We smell what the actor is cooking.
Dwayne Johnson in 2020!
