Can you smell the talking points The Rock is cooking up?
It may not have the same flair as his catchphrase during his wrestling days, but doesn’t mean he isn’t likely to say them soon. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants a career in politics and wants to be on the debate stage with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
“My debate skills need work. I am good however at shutting bulls**t down,” Johnson said in response to an article about him debating Trump and Clinton.
Johnson has said multiple times that he’s flirting with a future in politics.
“I wouldn’t rule [a political career] out. I think in order for politicians to be successful, you have to be passionate about politics,” Johnson said to Fox News back in 2012. “I care about our country, but right now I can make impact in other ways”
He reiterated the desire for a political career again in June during an interview with British GQ.
“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out,” he said to the men’s lifestyle magazine. “I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.”
If Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger can do it, why not The Rock?
