Dwayne Johnson leaves door open for presidential campaign in 'Tonight Show' interview

"The story has blown up because it was so wonderfully written", Johnson said on NBC's The Tonight Show Thursday, praising writer Caity Weaver. To be clear, that's president of the United States. The poll he is referring to was conducted by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm.

The interview was given by Johnson after The Washington Post suggested that the former WWE star could win an election based on his likability and ancestry. So, I said Allow me to seriously think about this and then I will offer you guys a real and respectful answer. "It's so flattering", said Johnson. Get up early in the morning, go to work, spend time with the troops, take care of my family; I love taking care of people. "Why are people making such a connection or such a big deal about this?" In the face of such affirmation, Johnson has doubled down on the possibility of running, telling Jimmy Fallon, "Three-and-a-half years is a long ways away, so we'll see".

'The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it. "Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country".
