During the interview, Johnson said to Biden and Harris, “You guys are both obviously experienced to lead. You’ve done great things. Joe, you’ve had such an incredible career. You’ve led in my opinion, with great compassion, and heart, and drive, but also soul.”

Of Harris, Johnson said, “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 badass.”

There was a time just a few years ago that Johnson considered throwing his hat into the presidential race. In 2017, he told GQ that running for the office was “a real possibility.”

“A year ago, it started coming up more and more,” Johnson told GQ, addressing a Washington Post op-ed that suggested he would have been a viable candidate in 2016. “There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.'”

He added, “I think that it’s a real possibility.”
