Dwayne Johnson: I'd be good at 'shutting bull---- down' at debates

Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has often discussed the idea of running for office, said he would excel at one aspect of politics: "shutting bull---- down."

"My debate skills need work. I am good however at shutting b*llshit down," Johnson tweeted Wednesday.

In an appearance on CNN this week, a Trump surrogate said the Republican nominee would approach the debates as something similar to "WrestleMania." 

“If it’s 'WrestleMania,' can we get The Rock on stage so I can vote for him and be done with it?” Ham responded.

Johnson, a pro-wrestler-turned-actor, has said that he is considering a future in politics.

"I'll be honest, I haven't ruled politics out,” Johnson said in a June interview with British GQ. "I'm not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can't deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.”
