Moore Wants To Shake Up Politics By Pitting Celebrities Against One Another

One of the biggest complaints that liberals had about Donald Trump when he was running for president was that he had no experience in a political office. He was 'just a celebrity', and therefore not qualified to run the country.

It seems now that being just a celebrity is okay with liberals, as long as that celebrity is willing to run on the Democratic ticket. One of the most left-leaning filmmakers is begging another celebrity to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

Michael Moore is calling for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to run for president. Even though The Rock isn't in on it yet, Moore has apparently kicked off the campaign.

“Run the Rock! Run the Rock. Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f--king Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us,” Moore told Variety this week. “Think about how safe we would be if the Rock was president!”

“Not Vin Diesel! The Rock. Or Liam Neeson, but Liam Neeson can’t run because our Constitution says you have to be born here. So who’s the American Liam Neeson that we could run? Because nobody would f--k with him,” he added.

It wouldn't be the first time The Rock considered a career in politics. In an interview, he told British GQ that he hasn't ruled it out.

“I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring," he explained.

The Rock is actually a Republican. He has spoken at both the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention. His appeal seems to cross party lines, which could work greatly in his favor. After Trump won, a lot of people have said that he could give Mr. Trump a run for his money.

It could be the ultimate grudge match in 2020: The Rock vs. The Donald.
