Michael Moore predicted that Donald Trump would be President. He’s also predicted that he’ll be impeached but unfortunately not until “sometime in his second term.” Moore’s latest Trump bashing will come in the form of a Broadway play he’s creating and starring in. And even more recently he told Variety that there’s another celebrity we should put in the ring for President when the 2020 election arrives:
In an interview with Variety on Monday, activist and filmmaker Michael Moore suggested that Democrats should consider running a celebrity for office in 2020. At the top of Moore’s list? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. “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. “Think about how safe we would be if the Rock was president.”
Unfortunately for Moore, “The Rock” is a registered Republican who appeared at the 2000 RNC. Still though, Moore made his point. Was he serious? Hardly but don’t be surprised if a celebrity becomes the leading democratic President. Also, don’t rule out Dwayne Johnson either. When asked about politics Johnson said:
“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out. I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure,” Johnson told GQ last June. “I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.”
Moore further encouraged Democrats to run celebrities, including Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey. “Why we don’t run someone who’s beloved by the American people?” Moore said. “People love Hollywood.” While this isn’t a bad idea, it’s kind of sad though, don’t you think? We really have become a society where elections are the equivalent to elementary school elections where kids promise new candy vending machines in the cafeteria.
