It seems like Dwayne The Rock Johnson won’t go to the Oval Office!
As you may know, the former wrestler has long hinted at running for president or some other elective office for years. He even said USA Today in February 2021 that he “would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people want.” Well, a poll from a few months later shows that if Dwayne decides to run in the next presidential election, he has a big chance in the position with about 46% of the 30,000 people surveyed. Pipslay will give The Rock their vote.

At that time, Baywatch the star hasn’t given up on the idea, saying in a social media poll:
“Muttering. I don’t think our founding fathers EVER envisioned a six-fourth, bald, tattooed, half-black, half-Samoan, tequila drinker, truck driver, fanny guy. join their club – but if that happens then it happens’ I’m honored to be of service to you, the people. “
But it looks like he’s changed his mind now! In the preview for the upcoming interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the 50-year-old actor revealed that the presidential campaign is “off the table”. Why so? He said his “number one” priority right now is to be a father to three daughters – 21 years old Simone Johnson6 year old Jasmine Johnsonand 4 years old Tiana Johnson. Oh! Dwayne explains:
“It is not to be discussed. Right. It doesn’t have to be discussed. I will say this because it requires a party B for this. I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a dad. And that’s the most important thing to me is being a father, the number one person, especially during this time, a pivotal time in my daughters’ lives. “
“I know what it feels like to be on the road and so busy that I have been absent for many years of my first daughter. [life]. Grow up at a critical age at this critical time in their lives, and that’s what the president is going to do. So my number one priority is my daughters. Sure, the CEO sounds great. But the number one thing I want to be is a dad. That’s it.”
Honestly, we can respect that! You can sneak a peek at the interview (below):
