The Rock Refuses To Endorse Biden This Time Around

Joe Biden loves celebrities. Last month, as former President Donald Trump attended the wake of a murdered NYPD officer, Biden partied with former presidents Obama and Clinton and several celebrities, raising $25 million for his re-election campaign. 

Earlier in his term, after celebrities like LeBron James and Kerry Washington begged him for help, Biden traded “the Merchant of Death” for Brittney Griner, a WNBA star. The move jumped the basketball star over Paul Whelan, a man from Michigan who has been held by Russia for years on “espionage” charges. 

Earlier in the week, the White House began attacking Israel after the IDF accidentally bombed aid workers connected to celebrity, and famously anti-Trump, chef Jose Andres. The calls for accountability come from a president who droned a family on accident during the chaos of his botched Afghanistan withdrawal and took zero responsibility for it. 

In 2024, unlike 2020, however, Biden will not be receiving the endorsement from one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.

Cain asked if he was happy with that endorsement four years later, and with the current state of American culture, reported Fox News.

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

“The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was what I thought was the best decision for me at that time,” he said. However, he regretted the division caused by wading into politics and said he would not be publicly endorsing a candidate this time around.

“Am I going to do that again this year? That answer’s no. I’m not going to do that,” he told Cain. “Because what I realized that what that caused back then was something that tears me up in my guts back then and now, which is division. And that got me.”

Last December, during an interview with “Today,” Johnson spoke about the encouragement he has heard from his fans who have urged him to run for president himself. 

“Here’s what I can tell you with 100% certainty and surety is that I believe in working hard controlling the controllables and putting in all the hard work with your own two hands, and being humble, hungry and grateful, kicking a– and always give back,” he said about possibly making a presidential run. “That’s what I can tell you. So it’s not a no.”

In 2021, the show noted, “Piplsay conducted a survey that found 46% of respondents would welcome the ‘Moana’ star in the Oval Office.

Johnson reacted to the survey, posting the results on Instagram and writing that it was ‘humbling,’ to hear that his fans would support him in a presidential run.

‘I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club,’ he said. ‘But if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people 🙏🏾💪🏾🇺🇸.'”

It’s not surprising that The Rock has fans begging him to run for the White House himself. According to Pew Research, “Roughly a quarter of Americans (26%) hold unfavorable views of both Trump and Biden. This ‘double negative’ sentiment is more common among younger adults than older adults. Those who reject partisan labels – identifying as independent or ‘something else’ and instead leaning toward a party – are also more likely to hold this combination of views.”
