It’s that time of year, people…

The 2024 campaign season is in full swing as we head towards a November rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

And let’s be honest, everybody already knows who they’re voting for, right?

I mean, it’s not like there’s really anything to learn about either candidate at this point. We’ve had 4 years of Trump and almost 4 years of Biden, so at this point everybody probably knows who they prefer. And no amount of screaming at each other online is really going to change anybody’s mind, but we’re still going to do it for the next 7 months.

But if for some reason you’re waiting to see who Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson endorses before making up your mind…well, you may be on your own this time.

The Rock endorsed President Joe Biden during the 2020 election, but recently revealed during an interview with Will Cain on Fox News that he’s not exactly thrilled with how things are going:

“Am I happy with the state of America right now? Well that answer’s no. Do I believe we are going to get better? I believe in that, I’m an optimistic guy and I believe we can get better.”

And he said that he has no plans to endorse Biden – or any candidate – this time around:

“The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was one I thought was the best decision for me at that time. And I thought back then, when we talk about, ‘Hey, I’m in this position where I have some influence and it’s my job then.’ I felt like that then, ‘It’s my job now to exercise my influence and share who I’m going to endorse.’

Am I going to do that again this year? That answer’s no.”

The Rock also went into a little bit about why he decided to endorse Biden over Trump, saying that at the time he saw the unrest around the country (remember, this was during the pandemic and the height of the George Floyd protests) and thought that maybe it was time for a change:

“I just thought, hey, our country feels like there’s a lot of unrest. It feels like I would like things to calm down. Maybe we need a change. This is what I’m going to do and this is who I’m going to endorse.

The takeaway after that…I started to realize, oh man, that created an incredible amount of division in our country. So I realize now going into this election, I’m not going to do that. I wouldn’t do that because my goal is to bring this country together.”

And he said that while he doesn’t trust politicians, he does trust the American people to make the right decisions for our country – even without his endorsement:

‘This level of influence, I’m going to keep my politics to myself. I think it’s between me and the ballot box.

But I will tell you this, like a lot of us out there, not trusting of all politicians, I do trust the American people and whoever they vote for that is my president and that’s who I’m going to support 100 percent.”

I’ll be honest, I’ve always found the idea of celebrity endorsements a little weird anyway. If you’re choosing who to vote for based on who The Rock (or any other celebrity) endorses…well, maybe you should just do your own research.

But although he’s not endorsing anybody in 2024, there’s been a lot of talk about The Rock eventually running for president himself.

So what did he have to say about that (after pouring himself another drink before answering the question)?

“As of now, no. That’s not my intention.”

There you have it.
