Trump’s recent firing of FBI Director James Comey and ongoing erratic online behavior has many of us looking to the future for a better (and hopefully sane) alternative. Thanks to Trump, we now have proof any living, breathing quasi-human qualifies to be president of the United States, leaving us lots of room to imagine who that humanoid may be. Looking ahead at the 2020 presidential election a mere 1,273 days away, we may be casting ballots for half-man, half-muscle Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.


In a profile published by GQ on Wednesday, The Rock announced he’s seriously considering running for president, which, in all honesty, wouldn’t be a bad idea, considering he has a solid track record of bringing joy to disabled kids and saving drowning puppies. Though this wouldn’t be the first time The Rock has hinted at a presidential bid. Last June, he told reporters at British GQ that he hadn’t ruled out the possibility. And he told Vanity Fair the same thing this past November. This time, when reporter Caity Weaver asked Johnson about the odds of him running for president, he said, “I think that it's a real possibility,” adding,

“A year ago, it started coming up more and more. There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.’ I didn’t want to be flippant. ‘We’ll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!’”

Don’t play with our hearts, Dwayne. If you’re serious, blink twice and we’ll start printing The Rock 2020 lawn signs and bumper stickers. Let’s just hope the time between now and then goes by fast and furiously.
