On Thursday, Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC stated that Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democratic presidential contender, has a drug addiction.
Kennedy struggled with drug addiction in the past. The former Democrat presidential contender has acknowledged using heroin, but he no longer does.
However, O’Donnell’s allegations did not directly involve illegal substances. The drug of “attention” was what the MSNBC presenter meant.
Even former President Trump, O’Donnell claimed, was addicted to the same drug.
The egotistical O’Donnell, who often says things to gain attention, said he’s been hesitant to discuss Robert Kennedy Jr. on this program because he didn’t want to support his ongoing struggle with addiction – the need for constant adulation. The same dependency that has driven Donald Trump throughout his adult life, O’Donnell remarked.
O’Donnell referred to RFK Jr.’s challenge to President Joe Biden and said his campaign was a publicity stunt.
O’Donnell stated that Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee for president and Robert Kennedy Jr. will not. He said the only real political question to ask him is if he will support the Democratic nominee for president or will he run as a third-party candidate.
O’Donnell stated that RFK’s run would be the most help he could give Donald Trump in the presidential election.
A survey conducted by Harvard Harris and released on Thursday shows that Biden has the support of 62% of respondents, while Kennedy only receives 16%.
According to the survey, 47% of respondents currently have a favorable opinion of RFK Jr. Biden’s favorability rating stands at 37% in comparison.
According to the survey, 16% of Democrats would vote for RFK Jr. in the current Democratic primary.
If Biden withdraws from the race, 44% would vote for Kamala Harris, and 22% would support RFK Jr.
Trump recently had a pleasant exchange with RFK Jr., where Trump praised Kennedy’s brilliance, and Kennedy referred to Trump as the most vigorous debater since Republican Abraham Lincoln and Democratic Sen. Stephen Douglas in 1858.
During a recent town hall on NewsNation, Kennedy expressed his pride in President Trump’s favorable opinion of him.
RFK said we need to stop being so hateful to each other.
