RFK Jr. Takes Shot at Ron DeSantis in Memorial Day Speech

Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gave a Memorial Day speech in San Diego, California.

RFK Jr. lamented to the crowd how the establishment and mainstream media views his campaign as a “joke” and that it’s “going nowhere.”

“They still treat me as a fringe candidate and they say ‘he doesn’t have a chance’ and they don’t even put me in the polls a lot of times,” he said.

“And I’m way ahead of DeSantis. My numbers are much better than his but he’s treated as a legitimate candidate. That’s ok. They don’t have to treat me different, all we have to do is win the election,” he continued.


Journalist Glenn Greenwald noted that RFK Jr. has been left out in some Democrat Primary polls.

Greenwald explained that many Democrat voters are reluctant to vote for Biden in 2024.

“Only 40% of Dem voters say they intend to vote for Biden *in the Dem primary. For whatever reason, the poll excluded the challenger near 20%: RFK, Jr. But even many Dems say Biden lacks mental fitness and they don’t want to vote for him,” Greenwald said.


CNN admitted RFK Jr. is polling at 20% in the Democrat Primary.

Just a third of Americans say that Biden winning in 2024 would be a step forward or a triumph for the country (33%). At the same time, the survey finds a decline in favorable views of Biden over the past six months, from 42% in December to 35% now. And results from the same poll released earlier this week showed Biden’s approval rating for handling the presidency at 40%, among the lowest for any first-term president since Dwight Eisenhower at this point in their term.

Within his own party, 60% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters say they back Biden for the top of next year’s Democratic ticket, 20% favor activist and lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and 8% back author Marianne Williamson. Another 8% say they would support an unnamed “someone else.”

Fox News poll last week showed Donald Trump had a 33 point lead over Ron DeSantis in the GOP presidential primary.

DeSantis polled at 20%.
