Would you want The Rock in the White House? Of course you would

You may not have Donald Trump to kick around for a second term if  Kenton Tilford has his way.

The political writer from West Virginia has someone else in mind for the presidency.

That would be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has actually hinted that he might like to have the job too. Remember that article in GQ back in May when the pro wrestler turned movie star said a run for the White House was a “definite possibility?”

Well, now this shizz is getting real.

Tilford is behind the organization to get Johnson to the Oval Office in 2020.

“Run the Rock 2020,” the name of the official organization, was filed on behalf of The Rock with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday, according to FEC records.

So what’s the deal?

Tilford told CBS News in an e-mail, “I don’t have any relationship with Dwayne Johnson. The amazing enthusiasm and energy on the ground for Mr. Johnson prompted me to create the organization. The hope is that Mr. Johnson will see how much America desires the real leadership only he can provide and jumps in the race.”

And how about that hashtag? #MakeAmericaRockAgain. You know you so want sticker that on the back of your car. Or at the very least a trucker hat. 

If The Rock, who is registered as an Independent, makes it in, The University of Miami would sure be proud of its California born alum.

Over his four years with the Hurricanes, the 6-foot-5, 290-pound defensive lineman Johnson made quite an impression but still there’s no wing with his name on it.

Twitter seems happy, with lots of support flowing in.
