Black Adam Star Dwayne Johnson Blasted by Talk Radio Host Mark Levin for Supporting Joe Biden
Dwayne Johnson supports Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for the White House, something author and talk show host Mark Levin dislikes.
Talk radio and Fox News host Mark Levin took aim at Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson for throwing his support behind the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris Democrat ticket.
The conservative personality dubbed “The Great One” slammed WWE’s self-proclaimed Great One and People’s Champion in a Twitter storm early Monday morning.
Levin called Johnson a “Self-righteous egomaniac” in a tweet adding “And why should we care who another actor endorses? What a surprise, he endorses the Democrats.”
He then wrote, “Well, then, let’s stop thinking for ourselves, no longer worry about the Republic, vote for a mentally incapacitated lifetime political hack, because ‘the Rock’ is stupid enough to do so. Uh, no.”
He then questioned Johnson’s claim of being a centrist who supports Kamala Harris despite her treatment of Brett Kavanaugh during SCOTUS confirmation hearings.

“By the way, to show you what a clown ‘the Rock’ truly is, he says he’s a centrist and Independent, yet he’s effusive in his support for Kamala Harris, who’s the most leftwing senator in the Senate (left of Sanders!), and was the most vicious and vile hack of the bunch during Brett Kavanaugh‘s confirmation hearings,” Levin tweeted.
“This should make you even more active in re-electing President Trump,” the radio phenom finished in a veritable call to action.
Johnson doesn’t normally support political candidates publicly although he openly admits he voted for Barack Obama twice. He confessed to Rolling Stone he neglected to vote in 2016 because he perceived the field as inadequate.
Stepping into the fray, The Rock posted a video on Instagram expressing his support for the Biden-Harris campaign before playing a chat he had with the running mates.

As a political independent and centrist for many years, I’ve voted for Democrats in the past and as well as Republican. In this critical election, I believe Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the best to lead our country, and as my first ever (public) Presidential endorsement, I proudly endorse them for the presidential office of our United States. Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, grit, kindness and respect. Being KIND & RESPECTFUL to one another will always matter. Now we must ALL VOTE, so hit the link up top 👆🏾 and I’ll help you get it done. #BidenHarrisJohnsonSummit #ProgressThroughHumanity #VOTE2020 👊🏾
“I’m going to be pushing this political conversation just a little bit more,” he said at the top of his clip.
“Look, I’ve got friends in all parties, but the one thing we can always agree on is the conversation and the dialogue, and where that conversation lands is always the most critical part,” he added.
“Now, this is something that I’ve certainly not done in the past, so I’m going to go big. You guys know me, if I go, I go big!” he continued.
It’s at this point Johnson declares he is an independent and a centrist ideologically before stating “Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country.”
In his conversation with the candidates, Johnson said to former Obama VP Biden, “You’ve led, in my opinion, with great compassion and heart and drive, but also soul.”
Of Harris, Johnson put her over as a “certified bada–” based on her conduct in the Kavanaugh hearings and others.
“You’ve been an attorney, a district attorney, a state attorney, a U.S. senator, smart, tough – I’ve seen you in those hearings – and, in my opinion, you are a certified bada–,” he said.
What do you make of Levin’s criticism of The Rock? What about The Rock’s endorsement of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris?
