Y2J joined the Rich Eisen Show and discussed the subject of The Rock running for POTUS surfaced. Jericho had a funny, yet oddly poignant take on the possibility of The Great One entering a Presidential race.
“I have no doubt that [a Rock candidacy] is going to happen," he dished. "Honestly, I do. Not to get political, but I think we’re in the era now of celebrity Presidents. I think our current President got in because he knew how to work a camera. I think Rock knows how to work a camera better than Trump does, and has much more charisma, and [is] much more likable."
“Because you don’t even need the experience to be a President anymore," he continued. "All you need to do is just have the celebrity value. So I honestly think The Rock will run for President. I really do.”
We're going to keep our nose out of any political commentary, but Jericho does make an interesting argument. Charisma is a crucial element to any successful politician and The Rock is one of the most magnetic personalities to ever walk the Earth. Even further, The Rock has never been shy about entertaining Presidential possibilities.
Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. ?? More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read... I care DEEPLY about our county... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. ?? ??
For now, The Rock is occupied as one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. But his lucrative success could be a means to a Presidential end. If the 2016 Election taught us anything, it's that we can rule out nothing.
