The Rock Explains Why He's Not Running For President Right Away

Dwayne Johnson

"Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free. home of the courageous DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" was the social media message The Rock posted foreshadowing then-President Barack Obama's announcement. "There's a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it's not possible in 2020", Johnson said at the NY premiere of his latest movie, Skyscraper, on Tuesday. When I tweeted that, I was told that the president was just about to walk on at his press conference in 30 seconds. After Johnson sent out the message to his Twitter followers, he was informed that President Obama's announcement was postponed an hour. The Skyscraper star said he is now lacking the experience needed to do the job which he would need to learn before making a leap into politics.

When asked whether he was serious about considering a presidential run, Rock said (per Wrestling Inc), "I absolutely do, yes".

The Skyscraper star explained that it began with an article from The Washington Post that concluded that if he were to run for president, he "could have a legitimate shot at winning" and that the story "picked up steam". It kinda picked up this steam, and when it picked up this steam a lot of the American public thought, 'that's a great idea!' And of course, I would. Although there to promote his film and have a good time drinking tequila and singing with Colbert, Johnson also dropped an interesting tidbit.

"It means, 'Answer me, oh my love, just what it is that I am guilty of, '" he said of the tune, adding: "I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that". "That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I'd been friends with Tyrese for a very long time".
