Maybe the world will go easier on Jimmy Fallon after he got Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to admit that, yeah, he’s mulling a run for president in 2020.
Talking with Fallon on The Tonight Show about GQ’s recent article “Could The Rock Really Win a Presidential Election?” in which Johnson admitted he’s considering the candidacy, Johnson said, “The surge and the groundswell since then has really been amazing.”
He followed up by citing the PPP poll that had him beating Trump in a hypothetical election. “I’ve really been blown away,” said the 10-time WWE World Champion. “It’s so flattering.”
As for 2020, The Rock said, “Three-and-a-half years is a long way away, so we’ll see.”
THAT’S NOT A “NO.” BOOK IT. HE’S IN.
After all, when you have better betting odds to win the election than Jeb Bush and Martin O’Malley, you’re already starting out ahead.
Rock/Zuck 2020. Let’s go.
