Dwayne Johnson Hosted Saturday Night Live For The Fifth Time Over The Weekend

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend for the fifth time. During his monologue, Johnson took the opportunity to make a tounge-in-cheek announcement of his 2020 U.S. Presidential campaign. He brought out Tom Hanks to be his running mate for the campaign.

While Saturday’s announcement was done in jest, Johnson running in 2020 may not be that far-fetched.
