Robert F. Kennedy Jr., as he declares his independent run for the presidency, faces a surprising setback from his own siblings. They have publicly disavowed him and instead endorsed Joe Biden, citing their brother as a potential danger to the nation.
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. @roryekennedy @joekennedy @KKT_Kennedy pic.twitter.com/WJfGwSxN1z

In a statement conveyed via Twitter/X, Kerry Kennedy, Rory Kennedy, Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend assert that while Robert shares the Kennedy name, he does not align with the core Kennedy “values, vision, or judgment.”
Pretty sad when a family of backstabbers goes after their own.

They go on to express deep sorrow regarding Robert’s candidacy and firmly declare their denouncement of his presidential bid.
It’s worth noting the irony in the Kennedy siblings emphasizing “values and judgment” while endorsing Joe Biden.
