Director Michael Moore Begs “The Rock” To Run 2020
Okay, this is really happening…
In a recent interview, The Rock said it was possible that he would run for president seeing as he had so much support from his 80 million followers on Instagram, plus being the highest paid actor in Hollywood and People’s Sexiest Man.
Now, activist and director Michael Moore has jumped on the bandwagon to support The Rock for a possible 2020 election. Moore has tried to convince Democrats to run a celebrity for years ever since it worked out for Reagan and Schwarzeneggar.
Currently, however, The Rock is a registered Republican.
Democrats Won’t Run Beloved Icons
“If you want my general philosophical thought about this, the Democrats didn’t understand that Trump is a beloved TV star,” began Moore, in a conversation with Variety. “Why don’t the Democrats run Tom Hanks? Why doesn’t Oprah run?”
Moore concluded, “Democrats always shy away from Hollywood and I always say to them, “Really? Because out where I live, people love Hollywood! They love the movies. They love stars… Why don’t the Democrats run somebody that people love?”
Moore concluded, “Gopher from “The Love Boat” was elected to Congress in Iowa.”
“Run The Rock!” Begs Michael Moore
Michael Moore told Variety:
“Run the Rock! Run the Rock. Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f—ing Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us. Think about how safe we would be if the Rock was president.”
The Hill reports:
“The Fate of the Furious star has long flirted with a move to politics. “I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out,” Johnson told British GQ last year. “I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.”
“He said in an interview with USA Today just days after last year’s presidential election that running for office would “be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”
