How does President Dwayne Johnson sound? Sounds cool, but it’s not going to happen as for the first time, The Rock has publicly said that he will not be running for office down the road.
In an interview which will air on CBS Sunday Morning, Johnson said that the idea of entering politics is now “off the table” and says that while he loves the United States, being a father to his three daughters is more important than anything else.
“I will say this, because it requires a B side to this: I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. And that’s the most important thing to me, is being a daddy, number one, especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives,” Johnson said.
He noted that he knows what it is like being on the road and very busy and being absent from his daughter’s life for a lot of years when she was growing up.
“And that’s what the presidency will do. Sure, CEO sounds great. But the number one thing I want to be is daddy. That’s it.”
