A fan officially registered The Rock to run for president in 2020

Posted July 12, 2017

As you may recall, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - star of not-that-good "Baywatch", and maybe also your dreams, I don't know - can't stop talking about running for president. In May, Johnson stood behind a podium labelled "The Rock Johnson 2020" on Saturday Night Live's season finale.

According to FEC records, the draft was filed on behalf of Johnson with the Federal Election Commission on Sunday.

It's real. It's on the books. However, it should be noted the paperwork was not filed by Johnson himself, but by a West Virginia resident named Kenton Tilford.

In case there was any doubt who he meant, Tilford listed his candidate of choice's name as "Dwayne Douglas Johnson". "Leadership would be important".

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one step closer to becoming US President. It's "a real possibility", he said.

"It's very flattering, but tonight I wanna put this to rest and just say once and for all..." [If I didn't agree with someone] on something, I wouldn't shut them out.

Yes, the jokes were flying around that The Rock could be president but then things started to get a bit more serious as of late. "If there's a large number of people disagreeing, there might be something I'm not seeing, so let me see it. Let me understand it".

He told Vanity Fair in November that he "wouldn't rule out" the idea of taking up the keys to the White House, after speaking at the 2000 Republican National Convention. He has said he is a registered Independent.

By this point, the world getting The People's President, the Most Electrifying President in Politics Entertainment, would not even be a shock.
