Dwayne Johnson Gets His 'Mind Blown' In Funny Bit With Jimmy Fallon

A recent poll showed that should he actually run for President of the United States in 2020 - something that is starting to feel more and more real by the day - Dwayne Johnson already has the edge over Donald Trump.

If you're wondering how a Rock presidency might play out, it's bound to be a sketch on this weekend's season finale of "Saturday Night Live", which Johnson will host with musical guest Katy Perry.

"The groundswell has been awesome and I have to tell you I'm so incredibly flattered", Johnson told Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Thursday.

A lot of people want to see a different leadership today - I'm sorry, not different, but better leadership today, right? I think over the years I've become a guy that people relate to.

Before the conversation changed, Johnson seemed to give a strong indication that he is at least considering it.

It comes as the Tories said there was a £58bn "black hole" in Labour's plans to nationalise two key industries. When Parliament was dissolved at the end of April, Labour held 229 seats compared to the Tories' 330.

"I'm very flattered by it".

Johnson has talked about running for president before, first in an interview with British GQ last summer and more recently in a profile in GQ earlier this month.

As for whether we'll see his name at the ballot box? "A year ago, it started coming up more and more".
