We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.

Here’s what happened today:

No Go

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doesn’t think he would make a great presidential candidate after considering a future run and doing “a small amount of research and analysis to see where this comes from and to see what it could look like in the future.”

The “Jungle Cruise” star is deeply invested in the country, but is more likely to play a president on the big screen than run for the position in real life.

“You know, at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics,” the Rock remarked. “I don’t know the first thing about policy. I care deeply about our country.”

“I care about every f**king American who bleeds red, and that’s all of them,” he added. “And — there’s no delusion here — I may have some decent leadership qualities, but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great presidential candidate. That’s where I am today.”

Bandwagoning

Former Superman Dean Cain blasted DC Comics for announcing that that the new Superman is bisexual. “They said it’s a bold new direction, I say they’re bandwagoning,” the “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” star remarked.

“Robin just came out as bi — who’s really shocked about that one? The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in ‘Supergirl,’ where I played the father, was gay,” he explained. “So I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.”

The actor roasted the comic book publisher during an interview with Fox & Friends on Tuesday.

“Brave would be having him fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay,” he continued. “They’re talking about having him fight climate change and the deportation of refugees and he’s dating a hacktivist — whatever a hacktivist is.”

Back In Action

Tiger Woods is back on the golf course after losing control of his car on a California road in February and plunging into a ravine 400 feet away. The 15-time champion suffered compound fractures that required several surgeries to repair.

Woods was photographed on the fairway of a Florida golf course, wearing a leg sleeve while leaning on a club, as he watched his son, Charlie, tee up for a drive at a junior event. There is no word if, or when he will return to the sport professionally.

Confrontation

Country singer Tim McGraw forgot the lyrics to his hit “Just to See You Smile” during a Saturday night performance at the Nugget Event Center in Reno, Nevada, and heckling from fans spurred him into an in-concert confrontation.

When a couple of fans jeered at him for the lyrical mishap, McGraw told them to leave if they didn’t like the show, then jumped off stage to confront them.

After the situation was dealt with by security, McGraw got back onstage and addressed the crowd about the mishap. “I’m not going through a midlife crisis,” he said, going on to explain that he was shooting “Yellowstone” prequel “1883” and had been awake for 48 hours straight prior to the performance.

“If I forget words tonight, just know I’m old and I’m shooting a movie, and I’m working with my wife,” he joked. “There are a lot of variables in that situation, so if I forget the words, sing along and help me out.”

Exit

“NCIS” star Mark Harmon is retiring special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs after 18 years of portraying the iconic character.

Though Harmon will stay on as a producer of the show, he left the series as a regular in episode 1904, when he and special agent Timothy McGee traveled to Alaska to track down a contract killer, and Gibbs declines to return to the agency after finding a “sense of peace” in the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Boycott

Normal People writer Sally Rooney is refusing to allow Isreali publishers to translate her latest book into Hebrew in support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel for their Palestinian policies.

“I understand that not everyone will agree with my decision, but I simply do not feel it would be right for me under the present circumstances to accept a new contract with an Israeli company that does not publicly distance itself from apartheid and support the UN-stipulated rights of the Palestinian people,” Rooney stated.

“The Hebrew-language translation rights to my new novel are still available, and if I can find a way to sell these rights that is compliant with the BDS movement’s institutional boycott guidelines, I will be very pleased and proud to do so. In the meantime I would like to express once again my solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom, justice and equality,” the bestselling writer concluded.
