Is Dwanye 'The Rock' Johnson 2020's Ross Perot? 5/23/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):

Do you smell what The Rock is politicking? As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has hinted that he may run for president sometime, and now those rumors are becoming more widespread that he may run in 2020 against Trump. Imagine that. Hollywood movie star versus Hollywood TV star. What a world we live in. No doubt the democrats need someone to run for them in 2020 since they have no one on their bench or anyone that can match the charismatic personality of Obama. So, The Rock fits that check off box for them: he’s charismatic, likeable, hip, I mean he’s a movie star, right up the left’s alley. What more could the left want?! It’s not surprising that he’s beating Trump, a man with a political record, versus a guy that no one knows what he believes except that we all agree that he’s a likable dude. No way he’ll be the democrat nominee in 2020, but if he actually wanted to run and not just have a cool P.R. stunt, he could help the democrats win if he went third party. Remember Ross Perot? The billionaire ran third party and helped Bill Clinton win, and if The Rock did that, he could pull in just enough votes to help the democrats come close to beating Trump.
