American actor Dwayne Johnson, better known as The Rock, admitted this week that his Hollywood friends don’t really like Joe Biden, that they’re just “loyal” to the Democratic Party.
During an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Johnson, who shilled for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the 2020 election, said that Biden had not personally wowed left-wing Hollywood circles.

Breitbart reports: Johnson and host Joe Rogan talked of politics and increasing polarization, to the detriment of personal relationships.
Johnson said he had friends who support Donald Trump and other friends who support Joe Biden. That spurred Rogan, who has been a Biden detractor, to ask the movie star, “Do you really have friends who support Biden?”
“No, no, no, no,” Johnson replied with a chuckle. “Thank you. That’s a good check, because that’s important, this is important context.’”
The Rock’s downplaying of support for Joe Biden, though, is odd considering he endorsed and campaigned for the Biden-Harris ticket and even hosted a long video pledging his support and speaking to both candidates ahead of the 2020 election.
Johnson didn’t merely endorse Biden. He gushed over the former vice president.
“I figured let’s kick this conversation off this way, by me officially publicly endorsing you both to become president and vice president of our great country,” Johnson said.
You guys are both experienced to lead, you’ve done great things. Joe you’ve had such an incredible career, and you’ve led with such great compassion, heart, drive, and soul. Kamala, you have been a district attorney, a state attorney, a U.S. Senator. You are smart and tough. I have seen you in those hearings. And in my opinion, you’re a certified badass.
And after Biden won, Johnson put out another video saying that he “cried” and that “humanity” won when Biden won.
“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,” he exclaimed.
