RFK Jr. Brushed Off by His Own Sister: ‘Let’s Talk About Reality’

(RepublicanNews.org) – Although independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is perhaps doing better in the polls than most critics initially expected, coming in at 7.6%, his sister believes he doesn’t stand a chance against President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

On Thursday, April 18th, Kerry Kennedy appeared on CNN with host John King, who pointed out to Kerry that she only refers to Biden and Trump when she’s asked about her brother’s campaign. King then asked her if she believed Robert would be a good president, to which she responded that she didn’t believe it was a question that needed to be dealt with “today” because “only two people” would actually be “capable” of obtaining the 270 Electoral College votes necessary to win.

Kerry told King that they needed to “talk about reality,” not “who might or might not be president.” She added that “the question today” was who people will vote for when they “go to the polls,” meaning that a rematch between Biden and Trump was a foregone conclusion. The remarks came hours after her appearance with Biden at a campaign rally in Philadelphia. Over a dozen members of the Kennedy family officially endorsed Biden for a second term, marking Robert as the renegade outlier and the black sheep of the family.

At the event, Kerry praised the president and his political career, which she said aligned with her father’s. The late Robert F. Kennedy Sr. was assassinated on June 6th, 1968, in Los Angeles while on the campaign trail.

Kerry called her brother’s campaign “dangerous” for the nation and said she believed it would only help Trump return to the White House. She called the upcoming election an “extraordinary” one, marking a “precipice” in the U.S., reiterating that only Trump or Biden realistically have a shot at the electoral votes needed to win. Kerry also accused Trump of wanting to “rewrite the Constitution” and to use it to target his political enemies.

Rather than fire back at his family, the independent presidential candidate said he was “pleased they are politically active,” which he said was a “family tradition.” He also said that they remain “united” in their “love for each other” even if divided on their political opinions, which he also noted is part of what his campaign is all about.

Kennedy Jr. surprised the country last year when he relaunched his campaign as an independent and left the Democratic Party, which has a long history with the Kennedy family. He’s currently polling above 7%.
