The Rock Announces President Run For 2020
« on: December 31, 2016, 10:28:04 PM »
The Rock (aka Dwayn Johnson) annouced his bid for the President in 2020 at his annual Rock the Troops festival and, well, you just have to see for yourself.

I honestly love The Rock, but I've only known him as an entertainer. He seems pretty serious about running and he explains a few of his policies in a video from the above link. I'm pretty conflicted if I want to see him as an entertainer outright or as a President as well. I look up to him as body builder and aspire to be like that, but I also have strong feelings to see him be President. Which is why I'm conflicted, if he becomes President, he won't be able to keep his size and shape and I may begin to dislike him. UGH.
But, uh...well there it is.

Do you think there's still space on Mount Rushmore for the Rock's face?
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Well he could be better than Ronald Reagan.

Just what the US needs--another right wing celebrity politician.  :dance:

Well, Schwarzenegger did OK as California Governor, so I guess...? Hell, I'll vote for a hunk of rock if that'll help. It would do less damage than Drumpf.

I'm a bit hyper right now and I just thought of a possible campaign slogan for The Great One, aka Dwayne Johnson
