Legendary wrestler, action actor, and entrepreneur Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has done something that he has never done in his decades-long career: endorsed a candidate for president.
The former professional football player took to Twitter to put his massive weight behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris.
Johnson, who considers himself a centrist and registered as an independent, has taken the path to endorse them after stating he met with them and was impressed enough to want to officially endorse a candidate for president.
He took to Twitter and Instagram to announce his choice as a video of the three of them was also posted to for his followers to view.
“As a political independent and centrist for many years, I’ve voted for Democrats in the past and as well as Republican. In this critical election, I believe Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the best to lead our country, and as my first ever (public) Presidential endorsement, I proudly endorse them for the presidential office of our United States.
“Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, grit, kindness, and respect. Being KIND RESPECTFUL to one another will always matter”

The Rock gave high praise to Sen. Harris by saying, “You have been an attorney, a district attorney, a state attorney, a U.S. senator, smart, tough — I’ve seen you in those hearings and, in my opinion, you are a certified badass.”
“I am honored and thank you for that. That’s a huge compliment from you,” a beaming Harris replied.
