Joe Rogan wants Dwayne Johnson to run for president
Few people in life are as successful as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. This led the UFC commentator and the ultra successful podcaster Joe Rogan to call on the Hollywood superstar to run for president.
Rogan has expressed his political views very clearly over the years. Of course, when you have a regular podcast popular enough to earn massive Spotify checks, it won’t take long for your ideas on politics to become somewhat known. Meanwhile it’s safe to say that Joe is not a fan of the current situation, in terms of the political powers in place.
This subject appeared on a podcast that Joe Rogan made with comedian Bert Kreischer. Here, the two discussed how complicated the world is today, and that the United States needs a strong leader during this time.
“Once the shit goes aside, that’s when you need a very good leader,” said Rogan. “It’s really true. You need someone who is honest when all the bullshit goes away. Everyone is worried about an invisible monster who wants to kill your grandmother, who wants to sneak into his lungs and close them. When people are worried about this kind of shit, you really want someone who has their character in order. This is one of the things that we really need to consider when we are talking about someone who is president. “
This prompted Kreischer to respond by suggesting that Dwayne Johnson run for president. While Rogan laughed first, he then said that he would support “The Rock” as the country’s leader.
“I would vote for him. I would be 100% behind him. I am all for The Rock. As good as he is over the rest of his life, he would be great as president.”
Are Joe Rogan and Bert Kreischer on something with Dwayne Johnson as president? Would you vote for him if he showed up?
