A video of Democratic presidential primary candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. doing a backflip into a lake has gone viral, being viewed more than two million times after it was posted on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday night.
The 69-year-old has earned a mixture of ridicule and praise from social media users for the stunt, which he undertook to celebrate donors “taking our support base to the next level!”
It came after a midnight Saturday deadline for a Federal Election Commission fundraising filing. He said such filings were used “to judge the strength of our campaign.”

Kennedy’s flip comes as many rumors are speculating he will run as an Independent candidate.
Here’s what Reuters reported:
U.S. presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will announce he is running as an independent instead of pursuing his long-shot bid to oust President Joe Biden as the Democratic Party nominee, a shift that could complicate the 2024 election.
Anti-vaccine activist Kennedy, a member of a storied U.S. political dynasty, posted a video on YouTube on Friday asking Americans to join him for a “major announcement” in Philadelphia on Oct. 9.
“I’ll be speaking about a sea change in American politics,” he said, decrying corruption in “both parties.”
“How are we going to win against the established Washington interests?” he asks. “It’s not through playing the game” by the current rules, he said.
