RFK Jr. Speaks Up About Family Members' Endorsements of Biden

(RepublicanView.org) – Independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy has responded to many of his family members endorsing President Joe Biden in the upcoming elections. Kennedy said he is unconcerned and loves his family regardless of their political choices. He described debating major issues with relatives “with information and passion” but accepts that people can disagree respectfully. Mr. Kennedy noted, however, that some family members were unhappy not just with his policy positions but also with his decision to enter the Presidential contest.

“Some of them don’t like the fact that I’m running,” he told his audience at an event in Detroit. Protestors gathered outside the Michigan venue, many comparing Kennedy to Republican nominee Donald Trump. The former Democrat, who left the party amid policy disagreements, spoke of his family after his sister publicly described President Biden as her hero.

Biden picked up endorsements from 15 members of the Kennedy family while paying a recent visit to Pennsylvania, including that of Kerry Kennedy, the candidate’s sister, who publicly denounced her brother in 2023 over comments he made about the 2020 health emergency.

Ms. Kennedy spoke during the President’s three-day visit to the Keystone State, saying the nation’s rights and freedoms are “in peril” and urging Americans to unite to save its democracy.

Members of the Kennedy family surrounded Kerry Kennedy as she spoke on stage, and she later accused her sibling of helping Donald Trump regain the keys to the White House.

Speaking to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Ms. Kennedy highlighted Trump’s remark that he would be a dictator for one day if re-elected and the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, which she believes provide evidence of Trump’s intentions to remove American liberties. “We must elect President Biden, and that’s where our energy has to be,” she said.

Jack Schlossberg, the grandson of former President John F. Kennedy, called his relative’s candidacy “an embarrassment.”
