The Rock has opened up about whether he will run for president or not.
Word on the street is that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was looking to make a run for president next term. In a new interview with “Rolling Stone” the actor has shut down the idea, but doesn’t completely rule it out.
“I mean, look, people are very excited, and it’s so flattering that they’re excited. I think it’s also a function of being very unsatisfied with our current president. But this is a skill set that requires years and years of experience,” Johnson notes. “On a local level, on a state level and then on a national level. I have the utmost respect for our country and that position, and I’m not delusioned in any way to think, ‘Oh, absolutely, if Trump can do it, I can do it, and I’ll see you in 20-whatever, get ready.’ Not at all.”
While he may not be considering the position now, he has gone into secret meetings with certain politicians.
“Just soaking in and listening,” he says. “I feel like the best thing I can do now is, give me years.” But if and when he is ready to take the leap, all he has to do is text a “well-known political figure” two words: “Freedom Patriot” to let them know it’s game on.

A mom goes to extreme measures to make sure her son is up for Easter services
A Phoenix mother was accused of giving her son a jolt with a Taser to wake him up for Easter church services on Sunday, according to reports.
Sharron Dobbins, 40, was arrested after she allegedly hit her 17-year-old son's left leg with a "contact Taser," Fox 10 reported, citing court documents.
Dobbins reportedly told law enforcement she "only sparked the Taser" and didn't actually use it on her son. An 18-year-old family member claimed to have witnessed the incident, AZCentral.com added.
The woman's son told police that Dobbins did use the Taser, but that he didn't want to testify against her. He did not complain about any pain but had two bumps on his leg where the Taser made contact, according to the reports.
Dobbins was arrested Sunday on one count of child abuse. She was reportedly released from jail on the condition, that she could not "initiate any contact with the arresting officer" or "possess any weapons, including a Taser," a judge said.
She's due back in court April 16.
