Democratic Candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. Announces His Candidacy for the 2024 American Presidential Election

The nephew of former President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963, announced his participation in the next presidential election in the U.S. 

The politician is known to be a controversial figure in Uncle Sam’s country for spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation about vaccines. 


 A Controversial Candidacy

"His candidacy is a huge embarrassment for his family," confessed a close source of Kennedy’s family to American media.  

"I love my brother, but I support Biden," said his brother to CNN. If his family is so embarrassed by this election, it is because the politician supported conspiracy theories concerning vaccines. The New York Times also claimed that Kennedy compared Covid mandates to the Holocaust. In 2005, the descendant of former President Kennedy affirmed that vaccines were spreading autism among the American population. To support his opinion, he published an article in Rolling Stone entitled "Deadly Immunity.

In the paper, he spread numerous scientific errors that tarnished his reputation. For instance, he said that thimerosal (a chemical present in several vaccines) was used by the government, which allegedly hid evidence that it could cause neurological disorders and other disabilities such as autism. 

"Public-health authorities allowed the pharmaceutical industry to poison an entire generation of American children," he said. A few years later, in 2014, he published a book entitled Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, in which he reaffirms his claim.

These occurrences compelled his family to distance themselves from him. "He is part of a misinformation campaign that's having heartbreaking—and deadly—consequences," mourned his sister.


Does Kennedy have a chance to win the election?

Regrettably, for Kennedy, it appears that Democrats favor Biden for the 2024 nomination. The current president has received great support from the younger generations, ethnic minorities, and seniors. This is due to his recent announcement that he will veto any bill aimed at ending social security.

However, it might get more complicated. Although several polls show Biden renewing his mandate, many of them demonstrate concern about the president’s age. According to AP News, only 23% of Democrats under the age of 45 want to see Biden run for a second term at 82.
