Documentary filmmaker and leftist activist Michael Moore hopes wrestling superstar-turned Hollywood A-lister Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson takes on Donald Trump as a Democratic candidate for president in 2020.
“Run the Rock! Run the Rock. Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f—ing Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us,” Moore told Variety in an interview published Monday.
“Think about how safe we would be if the Rock was president,” Moore continued. “Not Vin Diesel! The Rock. Or Liam Neeson, but Liam Neeson can’t run because our Constitution says you have to be born here. So who’s the American Liam Neeson that we could run? Because nobody would f*ck with him.”
Moore said the Democratic Party’s refusal to back a bona fide and “beloved TV star” for president is a question he has been perplexed by for two decades.
