Dwayne Johnson‘s getting acquainted with Capitol Hill, and while he’s not not running for president — or any other office, yet — he IS taking meetings with U.S. senators to talk football and the military.
The Rock was in D.C. Wednesday for a sit-down with several top lawmakers, reportedly chopping it up about boosting recruitment in the Armed Forces, and the XFL … which he owns.
Dwayne met with Senators Susan Collins, Dick Durbin, Lindsey Graham, Mark Kelly, Jon Tester, Tammy Duckworth and Todd Young … along with his XFL CEO Dany Garcia.
From pickin’ rock on the farm to meeting with the big guy himself. I was glad to host @TheRock today to talk about how we can better address military recruitment issues. pic.twitter.com/4baXvGsdz6
Sen. Tester is the mastermind behind the meeting, and he told reporters Dwayne will advocate for folks to join the military. Sen. Collins had no qualms about fangirling out … as she gushed about The Rock’s following, and admitted she wanted to get a ton of pics with the movie star.
