Video: CNN Baited RFK Jr. With This Question About Trump But They Weren’t Expecting This Answer

The Biden White House has its eye on the independent candidacy of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. They reportedly plan to take him out politically. However, we’ll see how the late attorney general’s son does in his ballot access fight.

He surprised many yesterday when he said during a CNN appearance that he believes President Joe Biden is “absolutely” worse for democracy than former President Donald Trump.

During an interview on CNN’s OutFront with host Erin Burnett airing on Monday night, Kennedy Jr. heavily criticized Biden, claiming he was worse for the United States than Trump.

The CNN host asked RFK Jr. whether he believed that Trump and Biden are an “equal” threat to democracy.

“I can make the argument that President Biden is much worse,” Kennedy Jr. said. “And the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech or censor his opponent.”

The long-shot presidential candidate accused Biden of “weaponizing” federal agencies to go after his political rivals.

“The greatest threat to democracy is not somebody who questions election returns but a president of the United States who will use the power of his office to force the social media companies Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, to open a portal and give access to that portal to the FBI, CIA, the IRS, the NIH, to censor his political critics,” he said.
Burnett asked RFK Jr. to clarify, questioning: “To be clear, you’re saying you could make an argument that President Biden is worse for our democracy than Donald Trump?”

Kennedy Jr. responded, “Absolutely.”

Third parties have always been seen as annoying thorns in the side of Democrats and Republicans. Bush 41 blamed Ross Perot for torpedoing his 1992 re-election. And now, Joe Biden might see RFK Jr. as a threat in what is projected to be a close election. It’s because of Kennedy’s name recognition that Democrats rightly fear he could siphon off votes, which is the basis for their animus toward him. And now, they can hate him even more for saying that Biden is a greater threat to our country than Donald Trump. CNN baited him, but he turned it around in epic fashion. RFK Jr.’s reasoning was simple: Biden has used state power to censor his political rivals.

RFK is a dyed in the wool liberal and I will not vote for him. On the other hand he is correct in his analysis of O’Biden.

The threat to democracy is the Marxists who hold show trials, violate the rights of their opposition, imprison people without charges and pass laws that enable deranged idiots to make accusations about non-existent events that occurred decades ago…oh yeah, and steal elections.
