Earlier we mentioned The Rock’s interview with Jimmy Fallon. The YouTube official account for “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” posted a clip (see below) of The Rock talking about the rumors that he may run for President. Those rumors picked up steam after a recent interview with GQ Magazine where he talked about seriously considering a run in 2020.
Rock said, “the surge and the groundswell since [the story] has really been amazing.” He continued, “I’m so incredibly flattered that there’s a national poll that just came out this past week that brought together Republicans and Democrats in saying that I would beat Donald Trump if we had an election today.”
“I think it’s because a lot of people want to see a better leadership today and I think more poise [and] less noise and I also think over the years I’ve become a guy that a lot of people kind of relate to – getting up early in the morning at a ridiculous hour – go to work and spend time with the troops, take care of my family – I love taking care of people and I think that kind of thing really resonates with people especially today.”
He didn’t commit to anything but said: “three and a half years is a long ways away so we’ll see.”
