Joined on stage by his running mate, two-time Oscar victor Tom Hanks, Johnson admitted that "in the past, I never would have considered running for President". Johnson thundered, to applause. "Americans deserve strong capable leaders, leaders who care about this country and care about its people".
"In the past I never would've run for President, I was anxious I wasn't qualified", Johnson said.
"Uh, Dwayne, that kinda sounds like you and me", Hanks said.
The Moana star then admitted that he and Hanks were only joking.
Johnson told Fallon that he loves caring for people and that it resonates with his fans.
"Pizza and us", The Rock said, finishing Hanks' thought and evoking all of the feels that we got from besties Barack Obama and Joe Biden. "I guess we gotta do it".
Dwayne Johnson just won't stop talking about maybe running for president in the year 2020.
Dwayne Johnson wants to be the next U.S. president. Though it was once an outright joke, it now occupies a space that is not quite real and yet not absurdist fantasy.
In 2000, Johnson spoke at both the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention on the importance of voting. On a related note, Dwayne Johnson will be next seen in Seth Gordon's ' Baywatch, ' alongside Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra. He has mentioned several times in the a year ago that he is not ruling out a run.
Johnson brought up the poll by Public Policy Polling that we mentioned earlier this week.
Johnson's not wrong on a lot of those accounts, but it's hard to get too enthusiastic about the possibility of yet another former wrestler holding the nation's highest office.
We still don't know if Johnson's actually running for president, but we'll take it. It's like a presidential ticket designed in a lab to make the most people possible say "What could possibly go wrong?". "I believe in inclusion".
And he didn't help calm those rumors when speaking to Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" this week.
