The lone grandchild of President John F. Kennedy reiterated his statement in which he said he stands by his earlier condemnation of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential candidacy.
During an interview with his mother, Caroline Kennedy, on NBC’s Today show, Jack Schlossberg, 30, was questioned about a viral footage from July in which he called Kennedy’s campaign an embarrassment. The Democrat said in the footage that the presidential contender used fame and controversy for electoral benefit.
In July, Schlossberg made headlines by accusing Robert Kennedy Jr. of campaigning for the Democrat nomination out of “vanity.”
When asked whether the family dispute was complex, Caroline Kennedy, 65, the Australian ambassador for the White House, chimed in with a jab at her cousin. She said she believed that her uncle, the late attorney general, would be against his son’s run for office.
RFK Jr. is the only well-known Democrat challenging Biden in his re-election bid, despite most voters believing Biden is too old to run for another term.

According to a report, a possible opening for RFK Jr. if he decided to run for president against the party of his father and uncles would be the Libertarian Party. It doesn’t have a well-known candidate but has succeeded at winning ballot access.
A previously unreported meeting between RFK Jr. and Angela McArdle, head of the Libertarian Party, occurred in July during a conference the two attended in Memphis.
