The Rock Endorses Presidential Candidate, Hands out ‘Certified Badass’ Card

Videos by OutKick

Sunday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson endorsed a presidential candidate for the first time. The Rock put his name on Democratic nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris.

“As a political independent & centrist, I’ve voted for both parties in the past,” Johnson tweets. “In this critical presidential election, I’m endorsing @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris. Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, KINDNESS & RESPECT. We must ALL VOTE.”

I could do without the capital letters.

Not surprised to see another Hollywood elite go all-in on Biden. The story, however, is how Johnson described the senator. Per the usually hip Rock, Kamala Harris is a “certified badass.”

(Take a minute to process.)

Political leanings aside, The Rock just lost all credibility. If Harris ever had a “badass” card, last week removed it, permanently. Check this L out:

Online, it’s controversial enough to choose between Biggie and Tupac. And the “no comment” route raises suspicions. But when you strike out that badly, an exit is warranted.

The mockery shouldn’t stop there. In 2019, the “certified badass” said she smoked weed and listened to Tupac in college. That’s cool, huh? Total baller? Well, it’s a lie. Get this: Harris graduated college before Tupac put out an album…

It’s disappointing to see The Rock collapse in respect. Good luck in the XFL.

  1. Honestly, it is laughable to label Joe Biden a “badass.” What qualifies him to be called that? He is a politician and has done nothing to risk his political career or any capital he may have earned. I guess Dwayne Johnson’s rise into politics will come with campaigning and supporting Joe & Kamala. If Jay-Z and Beyonce could not help HRC win, what makes people think The Rock’s support will push Biden over the finish line and into the White House?

  2. For the police-hating Left, nobody exemplifies abuse of the law more than Kamala Harris. She is pure evil. Rounding up homeless parents of children not going to school and laughing about it, trying to use prisoners as literal slave labor and used to fight wildfires, harsh sentences for minor drug infractions. She’s far beyond law and order; she’s the epitome of the authoritarian bend the anarcho-Marxist far-left currently campaigning to destroy American cities. Only she’s had actual power with that mindset.

  3. The Rock says he’s never endorsed a presidential candidate till this year. So…he was not motivated to endorse Obama in 2008 or 2012, but he feels obligated to endorse one of the weakest Democratic candidates in history. All those pile drivers and body slams in the past must be taking affect.

    • That is an excelLent point – i am certainly not a democrat but to take a pass on two elections with one of the most charismatic and historic candidates – to show up 4 year later and do something even Obama could hardly push himself to do is ridiculous!!

  4. also if anyone knew the history of Kamala Harris they would not endorse her…also if they stopped and thought about how long Joe Biden as A)been alive and B)been in congress they would realize what a complete moop he is

  5. Even the dems couldn’t stand harris in the primary she got like zero traction and really lit up ol joe like she torched him and he goes ahead and chooses her anyway. I think sleepy likes what OBJ likes if you know what i mean.

  6. This is all about politics. He’s got presidential ambitions in his future…as a Democrat, apparently. Good luck with that “centrist” stuff in the modern Democratic party, Rockhead. He surely didn’t do his acting career much good with this pathetic endorsement. He’d have been better off keeping his big mouth shut.

  7. Another Hollywood deuschbag endorsing the Left…..weird! “A political independent and centrist”. Please! Nobody that gets work in that cesspool is in the middle. If he was indeed that, he certainly didn`t tell anyone. As far as him voting both ways, stay to the Left, “Certified Badass”. Your not allowed back on the Right anymore.

  8. He had no choice if he wanted to work in hollywood again, not a surprise. I would like to see Tyson kick his ass in the ring though. Tyson/Trump vs Rock/badass UFC style.

  9. And yesterday…more HEADLINE NEWS from Harris-Biden…
    Sleepy Joe said he “got started out of a HBCU” by attending Delaware State.
    Delaware State ( a historically Black College/University) said…uh, ACTUALLY NO…he never attended.
    Hey…ya can’t get everything right…it’s hard work being a politician.

  10. funny to see Trumpettes get their panties in a twist… So the Rock doesn’t like Trump/Pence… Who Cares.

    Mike pence, Christian warrior princess, Talk about a badass. Oh no, we might have to sell a wedding cake to a a gay couple…. The world as we know it is ending….

    I don’t like either candidate. A pile of shit would beat Trump, But Biden might not be able too. Shows the low quality of candidates.
