Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hanks tease 2020 presidential run on SNL

22 May 2017

During SNL's season finale, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson finally told everybody that he is definitely in, after weeks of rumors about his supposed running for president.

But he went right ahead and announced a 2020 presidential run, with an intoxicating choice for vice president: Tom Hanks.

They explained that, together, they would have a lock on almost every demographic. "I'm in", said Johnson, who has often teased a desire to run for the highest office in the land.

We still don't know if Johnson's actually running for president, but we'll take it.

People's magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" also took the opportunity to knock Trump, telling Fallon's audience that America was looking for "a better leadership today [with]...more poise, less noise".

The Rock: Americans deserve strong, capable leaders; leaders who care about this country and care about its people.

"I would get the senior vote because I fought in World War II... in several films", Hanks joked.

"Dwayne, I could not possibly... turn this down!" said Hanks as he joined the Fate of the Furious star on stage. They aren't really running at all.

It also relates the matter to an incident and told that he was especially surprised by one national poll that said he would beat Donald Trump in an election held today, after that "I've really been blown away".

Though the two were joking, that didn't stop people from jumping onto the "Johnson/Hanks 2020" bandwagon.

'I love taking care of people.

"We all have issues, and we all gotta work our s**t out".

The monologue ended with a giant unfurling of banner that read: "Johnson and Hanks 2020".

Johnson was referring to poll data released this week from Public Polling Policy. "I believe in inclusion. And the decision felt like a snap judgment".
