RFK Jr. blasts own party for ‘profoundly undemocratic’ Trump verdict that ‘will backfire in November’

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy issued a stinging statement against Democrats after a jury from one of the bluest districts in America deliberated for less than 12 hours to render a historic, first-ever felony conviction against a former U.S. president.

Which is not to say that RFK Jr. didn’t take advantage of the kangaroo court verdict to do a little campaigning against the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee.

“The Democratic Party’s strategy is to beat President Trump in the courtroom rather than the ballot box. This will backfire in November. Even worse, it is profoundly undemocratic,” Kennedy said in a post shared on X. “America deserves a President who can win at the ballot box without compromising our government’s separation of powers or weaponizing the courts. You can’t save democracy by destroying it first. The Democrats are afraid they will lose in the voting booth, so instead they go after President Trump in the courtroom.”

“I’m also running against President Trump in this election. The difference is I’m challenging him on his record,” he continued. “His lockdowns during Covid. His atrocious environmental record. His cozy relationship with corporate America. His support for the war machine. His failure to root out waste and corruption in Washington. His service to the billionaire class. His bloating of the national debt. These are the issues that shape American lives.”

Kennedy concluded, “I’ll challenge him on these things, but the Democrats won’t. You know why? Because they pursue the very same policies.”

Even the RFK Jr. parody account agreed that President Biden and the Democrats have turned the rule of law on its head and made America into a banana republic.

“President Trump found guilty on all counts! Although I am not a supporter of Trump, it is evident that this case was politically motivated,” the account tweeted. “President Biden and his administration are literally running a banana republic!”

Considering the Trump campaign donation page crashed following the “rigged” verdict, it’s unlikely Kennedy will pick up any Trump supporters from this miscarriage of justice.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on the social media platform X:
