The Democrat Media Complex attacked Donald Trump for five years.
They hated him in part because he was a media star for decades.
Now another Hollywood star could be planning a run for president.
Donald Trump disrupted the political establishment by defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.
And much to the dismay of the D.C. Swamp, Trump probably won’t be the last outsider to win the presidency.
Another celebrity dark horse presidential contender could be movie star Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson, who’s become one of the most sought after action stars and producers in the business.
A recent poll of over 30,000 Americans showed that 46% of respondents would be willing to consider Johnson as a future presidential candidate.
Coincidentally, Johnson produced the new show “Young Rock” which features a future version of himself running for president in 2032.
In response to the poll, Johnson tweeted:
“Not sure our Founding Fathers ever envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club…But if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve the people.”
Johnson has previously been affiliated with the Republican Party, but he endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2020.
Johnson’s support for the Democratic ticket rankled some fans, especially considering Biden’s numerous gaffs and Harris’s penchant for breaking into inappropriate laughter.
The move didn’t come as a shock because supporting Trump means flirting with career suicide in Hollywood.
Acclaimed actor James Woods was dropped by his agent and essentially blacklisted from the business for openly supporting Trump on Twitter.
Jon Voight, Kirstie Alley, Kristy Swanson, Samaire Armstrong, Tim Allen, and a handful of others have expressed support for the Republicans in Hollywood, and they’ve been the target of countless barbs.
Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey has also ruffled feathers in Hollywood despite labeling himself a centrist.
He, too, has considered a foray into politics.
“I have a new chapter for myself, personally in my life. I believe it is in some sort of leadership role…I don’t know what that role is. I don’t know my category. We’ve been talking about the ‘why’ of leadership and even, I would say, we need some more good leaders.”
McConaughey recently started a podcast and has had discussions with Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson, two figures reviled by large swaths of the Left.
As for The Rock, a lot could change between now and 2032.
He certainly wouldn’t be the first actor to transition from Hollywood to politics.
His name recognition and reputation as a likable guy will carry him a long way.
But politics is a different animal.
The establishment Democrats that once loved him would go for the jugular if he chose to run as a Republican.
Trump experienced that same treatment after being welcomed in Democrat circles for decades.
