Democrats will be lining up to run against Trump in 2020.
Some frontrunners for the Democratic nominee for President in 2020 include Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Al Franken and Kamala Harris.
But Warren could potentially be teaming up with one of the biggest celebrities in the world for a 2020 run.
Back in May, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live for the 5th time and joined the exclusive 5-timers club where he received a customary jacket.
That appearance on SNL came after Johnson revealed in an interview with GQ Magazine that he was seriously contemplating a run for President in 2020.
Tom Hanks also appeared in that episode and then they both announced they would run against Trump.

Is this Johnson/Hanks ticket a joke? Probably.
“Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said he “can’t wait to meet” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after she praised the actor’s HBO comedy series Ballers.

The Jumanji star’s confession came a month after the far-left Massachusetts lawmaker was featured in an Uproxx article “Elizabeth Warren Watches, And Loves, Ballers.”
Johnson, who plays a financial manager to football stars in the HBO show, tweeted a link to the Uproxx article and thanked Warren for being a vocal fan of the sports drama.

Other than their love for Ballers, Johnson and Warren have something else in common: White House hopes.
The A-list actor turned the entertainment and political world on its head last month when he told GQ magazine that there is a ‘real possibility’ that he could challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
‘I think that it’s a real possibility,’ Johnson, a registered Republican, told GQ in an interview.
‘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.’”
Warren doesn’t just like the show. She’s clearly obsessed with Johnson.
Elizabeth Warren, bless her soul, just cannot stop talking about how much she loves Ballers. https://t.co/DZCZqHC1Fc

Johnson speaks passionately about running for political office and you can bet that he will definitely be having that conversation with Sen. Warren when they do finally meet.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone if Warren seriously considers running on the same ticket under Johnson.
