Remember back in June 2016, the wrester-turned-actor, Dwayne Johnson, gave an interview with British GQ where he told the reporter that there was a “real possibility” he would run for president The public went wild for the idea. Multiple news sources picked up the quote and ran with it!  The title of the article was, Dwayne Johnson For President, after all.

In the interview with GQ, Dwayne hinted pretty heavily the thought of becoming President The Rock had certainly crossed his mind.

Yeah – we had the same reaction, too.

The response even spawned a national poll. According to Public Policy Polling, Dwayne Johnson would lead Trump 42 to 37 in a prospective face-off.

On his most recent visit to The Tonight Show, the host, Jimmy Fallon, took the opportunity to get to the bottom of the presidential rumor.

When asked why he thought the public responded so favorably to the idea, Dwayne have a perfectly political answer.

He addressed the question but left plenty of details of its meaning open to interpretation.

The smile on his face makes it difficult to discern whether or not he’s being serious. Either way, we’d like to think the answer is most definitely – YES!
