Admission on disfavor of President Joe Biden had Dwayne Johnson slipping where his friends’ loyalties truly reside.
“This is important context.”
During the same conversation with podcast host Joe Rogan where the actor, entrepreneur and former wrestler known as “The Rock” appeared dumbfounded to learn Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was previously a comedian, the topic of bipartisan friendships led to a telling disclaimer heading into 2024.
The exchange on “The Joe Rogan Experience” that began with the host arguing in the past “nobody cared” if your friends were Republicans or Democrats rapidly escalated to Johnson asserting. “I have friends who are loyal to the party.”
Initially, Rogan had said, “When I was a kid, you could have a Republican friend. Like it was no big deal. It’s no big deal. Like, ‘Oh, Bobby likes George Bush.’ Who cares? Who gives a f*ck? You know, you were a supporter of Bill Clinton. He liked George Bush. Nobody cared. Nobody like, ‘F*ck you.’ It wasn’t like, ‘You’re a Nazi.’ ‘I’m a Nazi? I just want lower taxes.'”
“What the f*ck are you talking about?” Johnson chimed in, seemingly supporting the case that Rogan continued, “How did I become a Nazi, you know?”
THE ROCK: “I have friends who support Trump. And I have friends who support Biden.”

From there, reflection turned revealing as the actor remarked, “It’s the craziest thing. I have friends who support Trump. I have friends who support Biden.”
“Do you really have some friends who support Biden?” fired off the host.
“Well, no, no. No, no, no! Here’s what I do — I have friends — thank you, that’s a good check. Cause that’s important. This is important context,” Johnson noted, before Rogan offered, “They support the Democratic Party.”
“I have friends who are loyal to the party,” Johnson agreed.
Also this week, fellow actor, repeated co-star and reported close friend of the former wrestler, comedian Kevin Hart, didn’t miss an opportunity to poke fun at the president while appearing on the “On Purpose with Jay Shetty” podcast.
“I was watching Biden and there’s a clip of Biden — what Biden says is,” he said already laughing, “I probably watched this clip — I’m not into politics at all, but this — Biden goes, ‘I got something important I want to say and the whole world needs to hear it. I need everybody to listen right now.'”
“And he takes a beat, he goes, ‘Ah, forget it,'” Hart said mimicking a mutter from the president before the resignation.
Earlier this week, The Rock suggested he has no friends who support President Joe Biden.

Notably, Johnson himself had been a vocal supporter of Biden leading into the 2020 presidential election, endorsing the Democratic Party ticket complete with his own recorded conversation with the then-former vice president and running mate then-California Sen. Kamala Harris.
Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, KINDNESS & RESPECT.

The actor went on to celebrate Biden’s victory in another social media video where he said, “My vote represented my little daughters, my vote represented humanity, my vote represented decency, it represented the values and principles we teach our little girls and my vote also, for me, represented the importance of just being a good, decent human being and how important that is.”
For those not ripping the Rock for his past endorsement, the implication from Johnson was that the re-election campaign of the president was not long for this world and that support would begin to coalesce around a Democratic candidate without the baggage of guiding the United States into decades-high inflation and an ever-devolving presence on the world stage.
The rock just confirmed Biden will be replaced.

Yes. The Rock supports Biden. He put out a video. Now he wants to play nice. Shame him! Shame them all!

And the week before election day, he will endorse Joe Biden (he better if he wants to keep the acting role gravy train going). Book it ♂️

It looks like many are tired of Joe and his apparent mental health issues and inability to run this country.

You know how many democrat friends Rock must have? Thousands. And not a single one supports Biden. Tells you something.
