The Rock Gives Elizabeth Warren a Cute Shoutout on Ballers
Like most of America, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is a huge fan of wrestler/actor/ all around chill guy Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The 2020 Presidential hopeful makes no secret of her devotion to The Rock and his HBO show Ballers, where Johnson plays Spencer Strasmore, a high-powered sports agent.
A few hours ahead of the Sunday’s season premiere, Warren tweeted that she was looking forward to watching Ballers and congratulated Johnson on his recent nuptials. Johnson wrote a sweet message to Warren, calling her his “ballin’ friend” and thanking her for all her “hard work on behalf of our country.”
Mahalo, my ballin’ friend (thanks Bruce too)
It’s been a helluva run and I’m grateful to the people. Thanks for the 🏀 and ⛓, I mean happy marriage well wishes 😉
Best of luck and thank you Senator for all your hard work on behalf of our country.
Enjoy @BallersHBO tonight 👊🏾 https://t.co/uBjuk6iRTS

It must have been killing The Rock to keep mum on the opening scene where Spencer is seen sitting on the beach reading Warren’s 2017 book This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle To Save America’s Middle Class. Warren’s love of Ballers is no secret given how she’s tweeted about the show several times and even mentions it several times in the aforementioned book.
Team Warren, the official account of Warren’s 2020 campaign, was quick to acknowledge Johnson’s hat tip to his number one superfan by tweeting “You love to see it” along with a few screenshots.
