Dwayne Johnson Talks Potential 2020 Presidential Run: "We'll See"

Dwayne Johnson Talks Potential 2020 Presidential Run:

"As we were talking, she goes, 'Would you ever consider running for president?' I said, 'Yeah, of course I would consider it.' The surge and the groundswell since then has really been unbelievable", he said, adding that he's "incredibly flattered" by the poll results.

People's magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" also took the opportunity to knock Trump, telling Fallon's audience that America was looking for "a better leadership today [with]...more poise, less noise". The Rock. For president.

"Personally, I think if I would become a president, keeping my cool will be the most important thing". "I get up in the morning at a ridiculous hour and go to work, I spend time with the troops, I take care of my family".

Fallon-who graciously flipped through the entire feature for the camera (both Caity and photographer Peggy Sirota get an on-air shoutout, we all look forward to your forthcoming Tonight Show appearances)-also wanted to ask the question that's been on everyone's mind since The Rock graced GQ with his presence: How seriously is he thinking about running for President?

'The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson sat down with late night TV host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday where he gushed about the overwhelming support he's received in a recent presidential poll. His interests are conservative political philosophy, the American founding, and progressive rock.
