Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. complimented President Donald Trump on his tremendous popularity with the American people while speaking with Joe Rogan on the “Joe Rogan Experience.”
He highlighted the demise of the American middle class as the country has moved toward an increasingly polarized system of wealth versus poverty.
He explained, “Turning our backs on the American middle class which is the only thing that sustains democracy…if you have large aggregations of wealth at the top and widespread poverty below, that formulation is too unstable to support democracy. And the middle class has just been wiped out in this country and nobody’s talking about it.”
He added, “And I think that’s why Trump was so popular, is he was the one guy who was talking to THOSE people…and he’s saying, ‘I’m listening to you.’”
Kennedy, who has risen in popularity with both Democrat and Republican voters for his common sense stances on medical freedom, has been called a “headache for Biden” going into the 2024 election, according to The New York Times.
“The unexpected polling strength of an anti-vaccine activist with a celebrated Democratic lineage points to the president’s weaknesses, which his team is aiming to shore up,” NYT reporter Reid J. Epstein wrote.
RSBN previously reported that Kennedy takes “precautions” to protect himself amid his belief that the U.S. intelligence community had an alleged hand in assassinating his uncle, President John F. Kennedy.
He told Rogan, “Well, I gotta be careful. You know, I’m aware of that…I’m aware of that danger. I don’t live in fear of it. At all. But I’m not stupid about it, and I take precautions.”
A new Harvard-Harris poll found that among a slate of well-known political candidates, President Donald Trump is the most popular political figure in the country (45 percent favorability) along with Kennedy, who also netted 45 percent favorability.
