Kanye West will not be alone as a celebrity who advanced to become President of the United States in 2020. Documentary filmmaker and activist Michael Moore also proposed another figure to ‘rival’ the husband of reality star Kim Kardashian’s star.
Reported by the Independent, Moore has just proposed the name of ‘The Rock’ Johnson as a presidential candidate for 2020. It was delivered by Moore when interviewed by Variety about who is a suitable figure to be nominated as US President of the Democratic Party in 2020.
According to him, it should be a famous television star who is nominated.
“If you want my general philosophical thoughts about this: the one thing that Democrats do not understand is, Trump is a beloved television star,” he began.

For the past 20 years, he continued, he wondered why not Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfrey, or any other community favorite figure nominated by the Democrats to be president. According to him, so far Democrats are too ‘shy’ to be close to Hollywood.
“And I always say to them, ‘Really? Because where I live, people love Hollywood! They like movies, they like movie stars. Republic only nominated Reagan [Ronald Reagan], nominated Schwarzenegger [Arnold Schwarzenegger], “he said.
“‘Gopher’ from The Love Boat was elected a member of Congress,” he continued.

So, who are the celebrities that Moore thinks fit? That’s when The Rock came out.
“Candidate The Rock, nominate The Rock! Who do you want to lead? I really want Rock! It will scare the people who want to hurt us. Think about how safe we are if Rock becomes president. Not Vin Diesel! The rock!”
Diesel and Rock both have big muscular bodies. Recently they competed acting in The Fate of the Furious or Fast & Furious 8, became friends who ago conflicted. Even so, in the end The Rock understood Diesel’s decision to defect and they were united again.
The Rock itself was once thought to run for president as US, shortly after Trump elected from the presidential election last year. He felt he was “galvanized.”

If I feel like I can be an effective leader for all of us, and surrounded with high-quality leaders, then yes, I will do it [run for president], “said the new Disney movie actress Moana.
Moore had thought of another name, like Liam Neeson. “But Liam Neeson can not be nominated because our Constitution says you have to be born here. So who is the American version of the Liam Neeson that we can nominate? Because nobody will dare with her. “
Moore’s statement at once satirical to Congress, US politics, especially Trump. He has long been anti-Trump. The latest show, The Terms of My Surrender which will perform 12 weeks on Broadway alone is a satire resistance against Trump.
