Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not happy the Democratic National Convention has decided to not hold any debates.
In his latest radio interview with Breitbart, RFK Jr. stated it’s “unfortunate” the DNC is not holding any debates this year.
He would go on to say the Democrats are “rigging the system” for Biden.

Marianna Williamson is also not very happy to hear the DNC is having no debates this year and wrote n Twitter: “The DNC “plans no primary debates. As though there simply ARE no other candidates.”
The DNC “plans no primary debates.”
As though there simply ARE no other candidates … no other ideas we should discuss about ways to win in 2024, or other ideas we should discuss about ways to repair the country.
Too many people are too smart to accept this.

Here’s what Breitbart reported:
“Spiritual thought leader” Marianne Williamson joined fellow 2024 Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in slamming the Democrat National Committee (DNC) for having no debates.
“The DNC ‘plans no primary debates.’ As though there simply ARE no other candidates,” she tweeted early Monday morning, referring to reports that the DNC will not be scheduling any debates for the Democrat presidential primary despite two people already in the race looking to challenge President Joe Biden.
Williamson’s remarks came hours after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made a nearly hour-long radio appearance on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday, where he criticized the DNC for not scheduling debates and moving voting in South Carolina ahead of New Hampshire on the calendar.
“The DNC, at this point, has taken the official position that there will be no debate, and I think that’s unfortunate… I think what the DNC did to New Hampshire is also unfortunate,” Kennedy Jr. told the host, Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak, about the DNC changing the primary system to have the states Biden did better in first.
“President Biden didn’t do well there [New Hampshire]; he came in fifth. So they took New Hampshire, and they kicked it out of first place. And now they’re gonna say — they’re saying that they’re going to completely remove the delegates from New Hampshire, and that we should be at this point in history,” he explained.
“When you have so many Americans who are concerned about election integrity, we should be doing everything we can in our party [Democrat Party] to show that, you know, this is not rigged, rigged system. That it is actually democracy… people can run and that they can get to debate and that the public is gonna be able to see them, and they’re [the DNC] doing kind of the opposite,” Kennedy Jr. continued.
It's revealing that the DNC refuses to host primary debates this year: they're spitting in the face of their grassroots base. This is how the managerial class crushes everyday citizens – not with a bang, but with a whimper. pic.twitter.com/6g6tvcXL9U

Kennedy would later invite Biden to a debate:
I have known and liked Joe Biden for many years, but we differ profoundly on fundamental issues such as corporate influence in government, censorship, civil liberties, poverty, corruption, and war policy, among others. I look forward to engaging him in debates and town hall…

Here’s what Fox News reported:
Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson and others criticized a lack of Democratic primary debates as “undemocratic” and “unfortunate” as President Biden is preparing to announce his re-election bid.
“The DNC ‘plans no primary debates.’ As though there simply ARE no other candidates … no other ideas we should discuss about ways to win in 2024, or other ideas we should discuss about ways to repair the country. Too many people are too smart to accept this,” Williamson said.
Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator and co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, said the DNC’s decision was “undemocratic” and that it “robs voters of choice.”
