Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hinted at a possible presidential run in a post featuring him posing with “Fast & Furious 8” director F. Gary Gray and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. He posted this photo captioned: “From right to left: our ‘Fast & Furious 8’ director F Gary Gray. The 59th mayor of Atlanta Kasim Reed. A big, brown, bald tattooed man who years from now may just run for president.”
“Maybe one day,” Johnson posted in March. “Surely the White House has a spot for my pick-up truck.”
That message was in response to a movement launched to draft him as an independent candidate.
“The country is heading towards a disastrous election and Dwayne Johnson is the only one who could launch a winning independent campaign in time,” the web site DwayneForPresident.com asserts. “This is not just a movement of The Rock’s biggest fans. It is a combined effort of people who have seriously analyzed the possibilities and people who already know and love The Rock.”
