RFK Jr’s Sister Worries He’ll Get Trump Reelected

In an interview on CNN Monday, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s sister, Rory Kennedy, said she thinks it is “dangerous” to support her brother’s campaign because doing so may siphon votes away from the Democrats’ number one choice, President Joe Biden, and help get former President Donald Trump reelected.

As an unaffiliated candidate, Kennedy is getting support from both left and right with a unique campaign focused on fighting the federal government’s “deep state” to create more transparency and accountability for the American people.

But the Kennedy family has remained loyal to the Democrat Party and repeatedly criticized Kennedy for running against Trump and Biden this election cycle, potentially spoiling the election in favor of Trump in close battleground states.

In an interview on CNN Monday, Rory Kennedy said: “It is really about siphoning votes from Biden. The polls I am seeing Bobby is taking 70 percent of the votes from Biden and 30 percent from Trump. I feel strongly that this is the most important election of our lifetime.”

“And there’s so much at stake, and I do think it’s going to come down to a handful of votes and a handful of states,” she added. “I do worry that Bobby just taking some percentage of votes from Biden could shift the election and lead to Trump’s election.”

Last year, Rory and four other siblings of Kennedy attacked their brother in the press over his decision to jump into the race as an independent candidate. She called his candidacy “perilous” to the country.

“Bobby might share the same name as our father, but he does not share the same values, vision or judgment. Today’s announcement is deeply saddening for us. We denounce his candidacy and believe it to be perilous for our country,” Rory and the other siblings said.

Rory’s warning came just before Kennedy announced Nicole Shanahan is his running mate. “I wanted a partner who is a gifted administrator but also possesses the gift of curiosity, an open, inquiring mind, and the confidence to change even her strongest opinions in the face of contrary evidence,” Kennedy said in his announcement.
