The Rock Takes Shots And Reveals Why He's Delaying His Presidential Run

Dwayne Johnson would need more "experience" and a better understanding of "policy" before making a serious bid for the US presidency.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.

Colbert brought up a tweet Johnson sent out an hour before it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed. "Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free. home of the courageous DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" was the social media message The Rock posted foreshadowing then-President Barack Obama's announcement.

"I absolutely do, yes", Johnson said as the crowd began cheering loudly to his response.

Fans have called on the Skyscraper actor to run for office following the publication of an article in The Washington Post two years ago which suggested that he could easily win an election.

While Johnson has spoken about the subject in various interviews, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night he explained that he has no desire to potentially go up against current U.S. President Donald Trump in 2020 and that he would only be serious about entering politics if he could commit "110%". The Skyscraper star said he is now lacking the experience needed to do the job which he would need to learn before making a leap into politics. It kinda picked up this steam, and when it picked up this steam a lot of the American public thought, 'that's a great idea!'

"So when that started picking up when I'm asked [I say] of course I have incredible respect for our American people and our country". Of course, I would.

"But at the same time, Stephen, I mean look, I'm not delusional at all", he added. I need that thing... oh, experience.

Not only can he wrestle and act, but he can also sing and shot tequila with the best of them.
