In a recent and somewhat surprising turn of events, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. officially declared his candidacy for the office of President as an independent candidate. However, his own siblings have wasted no time in distancing themselves from his campaign, instead endorsing Joe Biden and accusing their own brother of being a potential danger to America.
You appear to have been bought and paid for.

In a statement released via X, formerly known as Twitter, Kerry Kennedy, Rory Kennedy, Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend collectively conveyed their concerns about Robert F. Kennedy Jr. ‘s run for the presidency. Despite his shared Kennedy name, they emphatically assert that he does not embody the core Kennedy “values, vision, or judgment.”
Their statement goes even further, expressing profound sadness in response to his candidacy and ultimately denouncing it. The unequivocal stance they have taken against their brother’s campaign is nothing short of brutal. One can’t help but notice the irony in the Kennedy siblings emphasizing the importance of “values and judgment” as they endorse Joe Biden.
This move led to a wave of criticism on social media, with many individuals taking to the platform formerly known as Twitter to voice their opinions. User @Excellion pointed out the apparent contradiction, writing, “Read what you’re actually writing. You’re saying it’s ‘dangerous’ for people to run in an election in a democracy? That sounds awfully authoritarian.”
This sentiment reflects a broader concern about labeling any candidate as “dangerous” merely for participating in the democratic process.
Member @usernom99 weighed in, highlighting the inherent differences in political perspectives that can exist within families, stating, “Family rarely agrees on all things. But denouncing your brother seems more self-serving than anything else.” This observation underscores the complexities of familial relationships in the realm of politics.
Someone else expressed a more critical view, describing the situation as a family of backstabbers targeting their own, suggesting that this speaks volumes about the dynamics at play. User @wasrichnowbroke went a step further, insinuating that the Kennedy siblings might have been influenced by external factors. They wrote, “You appear to have been bought and paid for.”
In this tumultuous chapter of political discourse, the decision to endorse Joe Biden while characterizing their brother as ‘dangerous’ reveals the astonishing depths of the political swamp, where even the strongest familial bonds are broken over one geriatric simpleton.
