The "Baywatch" star's recent GQ quote that running for president is "a real possibility" was one of the Hot Topics on Wednesday morning, where Sunny Hostin took a firm stance against another Hollywood-type in the White House.
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no," she responded. "You have to have qualifications to run ..."
"Do you though, do you?" Jedediah Bila joked.
"To run the country. What is next, are we going to have Martin Sheen from 'The West Wing' run for president? Maybe President Fitz from 'Scandal' should run."
Looking at Donald Trump and Dwayne Johnson, I will take the lack of experience if you get a person with integrity that can stand back and know what they don't know and ask for help. Because Trump hasn't been able to do that and he was a businessman. If it's between Trump and Dwanye 'The Rock' Johnson, you got my vote."
Joy Behar took it a step further, adding, "I will take The Rock. I will take any rock, not just The Rock."
Bila said "that's not going to happen," explaining she believes voters will be looking for experience following the current presidency.
As for Whoopi, she explained she just didn't want to see what she believes happened in 2016 happen again, regardless of candidate.
"In this country, the belief was anybody could be president. You didn't have to have a gazillion dollars, you had to have a belief in America," Whoopi said. "The blowback -- and I say this to everybody and you can save your tweets because I don't care -- I felt a lot of what we saw had to do with people saying 'The guy I think should be parking my car has been running my country ... hell no, we're going all the way to the other side.'
"We have to base all of this on what's best for the US really, and find the things we can re-do and fix," she added in conclusion.
During his interview with GQ, Johnson revealed what he'd like to see in the White House.
"Better leadership ... I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part. Even if we disagree, we've got to figure it out. Because otherwise I feel, as an American, all I hear and all I see in the example you're setting is 'Now I'm shutting you out. And you can't come.' [Disagreement] informs us," he explained. "The responsibility as president—I [would] take responsibility for everyone. Especially when you disagree with me. If there's a large number of people disagreeing, there might be something I'm not seeing, so let me see it. Let me understand it."
