The idea isn’t as far-fetched as some might think. Celebrities have a long history of acquiring political office.

 

Rock is no stranger to making political statements.

He has drawn the ire of liberals for defending the Confederate battle flag and for selling T-shirts the refer to liberal states as Dumbf**kistan.
