You wanna know what my legit first reaction was after finding out Donald Trump won the election? It was something like ‘holy sh*t, The Rock has a legit shot to win one day.’ I mean, hell, if we’re willing to elect an unlikeable, orange, uncharming, reality TV star, then we are MORE than capable of electing an extremely likable, not-orange, charismatic, movie star, right?

Rumors of a Dwayne Johnson presidential run have been swirling around all year, so much so that he addressed the issue both on Instagram and in an interview with Michael Strahan.

This week, Vanity Fair caught up with Johnson and asked o whether he was still thinking about political aspirations in the next election cycle. He stuck by his original answer: he’s not ruling it out.

“I wouldn’t rule it out. It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

Already in politician form, the Rock is using non-answers that can’t be turned against him in the future. Dude hasn’t even started and he’s already a pro. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: I’d vote for The Rock TOMORROW.
