Robert Kennedy Jr dropped a Trump bombshell live on CNN, saying that Donald Trump could be “the greatest president in history.“
Don Lemon started by asking Robert Kennedy Jr how he felt about comparisons between the Trump family and the Kennedys. Of course Lemon assumed that RFK Jr would shoot that line of thinking down.
Lemon wasn’t prepared for what came next:
“Well I think Donald Trump can be any kind of president he wants. He has this extraordinary opportunity because he’s coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in our history, with the possible exception of Andrew Jackson,” Robert Kennedy Jr said.
“Both of them, Jackson and Trump, came in, people were sickened, people were outraged, and he became, unless you were an American Indian, a very good president at defending the country against corporate power, and really democratizing American in many ways.
“He said to Leonardo di Caprio that he wants to be the next Teddy Roosevelt, and he can easily do that.“
Lemon was in shock at this point, and wasn’t sure how to fill the final seconds of the interview. He stumbled and asked a question that didn’t even make sense: “Do you think the new Kennedys, do you think that’s a fair competition?”
“Like I said, I think he can be any kind of president he wants, I think he can be the greatest president in history,” Robert Kennedy Jr said.
