Will Smith Says He May Have To Run For President
Sounds like Will Smith is just a stumped as the rest of us by the outpouring of support for Donald Trump during this presidential race. With the presidential hopeful’s most recent commentary on Muslims and his proposed policy of banning them from the US altogether, Mr. Smith says he might just get forced to hop in and do something himself one of these days…
He’s a two-time Oscar nominee and a multiple Grammy winner. But Will Smith has insisted he feels there is still so much more for him to give, and the political arena is next on his list.
The 47-year-old has told CBS News that Donald Trump’s ‘crazy’ comments suggesting the U.S. should ban all Muslims from entering the country, may ‘force’ him to run for office.
Speaking to Tracy Smith for an interview on CBS Sunday Morning, the actor and musician explained:
‘There’s a thing that I’m supposed to be doing, there’s a person I want to be that I always saw a reflection in my grandmother’s eyes of what it is, but I can’t reach that thing. There’s so much more that I feel I have to offer that I can’t access in myself.’
When asked where he thinks his ambition might take him next, Will replied: ‘If people keep saying all the crazy kinds of stuff they’ve been saying on the news lately about walls and Muslims, they’re going to force me into the political arena.’
And the multi-talented star is aiming high, quipping: ‘I mean, I gotta be the president. Come on! What else would I run for?’
We’re sure he’s being facetious, but honestly, if it were between Trump and Smith, our vote is going for Will! Hell, DJ Jazzy Jeff could be VP…
