The Rock declares his candidacy; picks running mate


DWAYNE JOHNSON, AKA The Rock, declared his candidacy for POTUS on Saturday Night Live.

The Somoan/American actor's name keeps popping up on pundits' list of possible challengers to Donald Trump. 

About all the speculation, he said, "You know, it's very flattering. And let me just say, once and for all — I'm in," he announced Saturday to cheers from the audience. "Starting tonight, I am running for President of the United States."

In the spoof announcement, he even picked his running mate: fellow actor Tom Hanks, one of the most popular and respected members of the Hollywood community. That would be a formidable ticket. Oh, if  only it wasn't a spoof.
