Filmmaker and political activist Michael Moore is rooting for an unlikely contender for the 2020 presidential election: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Moore told Variety in an interview this week: “Run the Rock! Run the Rock. Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f–king Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us.”
“Think about how safe we would be if the Rock was president. Not Vin Diesel! The Rock. Or Liam Neeson, but Liam Neeson can’t run because our Constitution says you have to be born here. So who’s the American Liam Neeson that we could run? Because nobody would f–k with him.”
The Rock has reportedly been considering the move to politics for some time. Just last year, he told British GQ,
“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out. I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.”
