During a recent interview with LADBible, Hart opened up on his perspectives of The Rock becoming the US President. While, the game ‘Agree to Disagree’ was on, the stars were asked the question if, ‘Dwayne ‘The Rock’ would be a brilliant President’? While, The Rock disagreed with it, Hart was of the contrasting opinion.

Johnson was touched by Hart’s answer. Hart explained his response while bursting out in laughter, “I said it cause I wanna see the crash and burn, baby.” The Rock then asked, “So, you wanna get me in the White House, just so I can crash and burn?” 

Hart responded while imitating The Rock, “Just so you can stress yourself out.” 

However, he was quick to defend his answer on a serious note as well. He said, “I think he is more than capable of doing whatever he puts his mind to. That’s why I’m over on that side (his answer to agree to the question)”. The Rock was touched by Hart’s gesture and proceeded express his gratitude.
