RFK Jr says Erin Burnett’s ‘brain stopped working’ after he dropped some facts about Biden

Presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. continues to call out media bias and censorship against his campaign, noting this week how a CNN host’s “brain stopped working” when he criticized President Joe Biden.

The independent candidate spoke on “The Rubin Report” about the telling interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett and her reaction when he declared Biden is more of a threat to democracy than former President Donald Trump.

“She asked me, don’t I think Trump is very dangerous for the republic, and I said to her, I can make an argument that President Biden is even more dangerous to the republic,” he recounted. “And she had this kind of astonished look — where, you know, her brain stopped working.”

“And I said the reason for that, that I would say that, is because President Biden did something that no other president in history, a court has found this,” Kennedy added. “There’s no court that’s found that President Trump tried to steal the election or tried to derail the election or tried to start an insurrection. There may be plenty of evidence that he did that. There’s no court that’s found that.”

Kennedy continued, saying there are “courts that have found that President Biden was censoring his opponents. And not just me, although he did censor me, and I did win that suit. So, it’s not me making it up.”

“And, by the way, they were censoring me not because I was promoting misinformation… The Facebook people were saying what he actually was saying was factually correct,” the former Democrat said.

“They had to come up with a new word to describe my post. And the word is ‘malinformation.’ It’s not misinformation or disinformation. It’s ‘malinformation,’ which is information that is factually correct but is, nevertheless, inconvenient for the government,” Kennedy explained.

In the CNN interview earlier this month, RFK Jr. told Burnett, “President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech or to censor his opponent.”

Biden “started censoring — not just me — but 37 hours after he took the oath of office, he was censoring me. No president in the country has ever done that,” Kennedy contended, sparking a quick fact-check from Politifact which just had to point out that “Presidents John Adams and Woodrow Wilson signed sedition laws that targeted critics of the federal government, prompting some of those critics to be prosecuted and punished.”

Kennedy’s comments about Burnett and the echo chamber of mainstream media came as Trump called on Democrats to vote for the independent candidate over Biden.

Admitting “he’s got some nice things about him — I happen to like him,” Trump called RFK Jr. “the most radical left candidate in the race.”

“I guess that would mean that RFK Jr.’s going to be taking away votes from Crooked Joe Biden, and he should, because he’s actually better than Biden,” Trump continued. “He’s much better than Biden. If I were a Democrat, I’d vote for RFK Jr. every single time over Biden, because he’s frankly more in line with Democrats.”
