Republican figures Ron DeSantis and Roger Stone have expressed their support for Joe Biden’s rival, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., potentially serving in their administrations. While DeSantis is interested in Kennedy’s expertise in “the medical stuff” and public health agencies, Stone views him as a potential ally in challenging globalist forces and rallying support for Trump. These endorsements shed light on the different political strategies at play and the potential impact Kennedy could have on the 2024 campaign.
In an interview with right-wing commentator Clay Travis, Ron DeSantis expressed his admiration for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s potential role in his administration. While downplaying the idea of Kennedy as a running mate, DeSantis showed interest in having Kennedy handle “the medical stuff” and confront top health agencies like the FDA and CDC. This aligns with DeSantis’ campaign to appeal to vaccine skeptics and address concerns surrounding vaccines and public health agencies.
Roger Stone, the notorious GOP dirty trickster, also voiced his endorsement for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. In his podcast, Stone suggested that Kennedy deserves consideration for a Cabinet position in a future Trump administration. He highlighted Kennedy’s previous comments about serving in roles like the Department of Health and Human Services and emphasized the potential benefits of having a bipartisan Cabinet, similar to Kennedy’s uncle John F. Kennedy. Stone believes that Kennedy’s message of hope and national unity resonates with disaffected Democrats and independents, potentially benefiting Trump’s campaign.
Both DeSantis and Stone’s support for Kennedy carries implications for their respective political strategies. DeSantis’ interest in having Kennedy tackle “the medical stuff” shows his efforts to appeal to vaccine skeptics and address concerns surrounding vaccines and health agencies. On the other hand, Stone views Kennedy as a potential ally in challenging globalist forces and rallying disaffected Democrats and independents to support Trump. These endorsements reflect the different approaches each figure takes to garner support and highlight Kennedy’s potential impact on the 2024 campaign.
As of now, the Kennedy campaign has yet to comment on these endorsements. Running as a Democrat, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has not stated whether he would endorse President Biden if his bid to unseat him fails. His campaign’s response to the endorsements could shed light on his political positioning and potential strategies moving forward.
Ron DeSantis and Roger Stone’s endorsements of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have brought attention to the potential roles Kennedy could play in their respective administrations. DeSantis sees him as a key figure to address “the medical stuff” and engage with public health agencies, while Stone views him as a unifying force to challenge globalist forces and rally support for Trump. These endorsements offer insights into the different political strategies at play and underscore Kennedy’s significance in shaping the dynamics of the 2024 campaign.
