ICYMI: How RFK Jr. Spent His Holiday Weekend: NOT Denying Sexual Assault Allegations, Stoking Conspiracy Theories, and Definitely NOT Eating Humans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, MoveOn Political Action highlighted the ways Robert F. Kennedy Jr. celebrated the Fourth of July: by not denying sexual assault allegations, stoking even more conspiracy theories, and definitely NOT eating humans.

After an explosive article from Vanity Fair dropped last weekend detailing how RFK Jr. sexually assaulted his children’s former babysitter, he didn’t deny the allegations, saying “I wasn’t a church boy.” The article also included a disturbing photo of RFK Jr. holding what forensic experts have verified is a cooked dog. But don’t worry: RFK Jr. told Fox News he wouldn’t eat dogs, monkeys, or humans. Good to know! 

Just as concerning, RFK Jr. also took to X to pledge: “As President I won’t take sides on 9/11 or any of the other debates.” Knowing RFK Jr.’s record on fanning the flames of conspiracy, it’s hardly surprising he’s adopting antitruth, anti-American views. 

“Considering the heinous sexual assault allegations that recently surfaced and his consistent antiscience, antidemocratic views, it’s no wonder RFK Jr. is losing voters and falling in the polls,” said MoveOn Political Action Spokesperson Britt Jacovich. “RFK Jr.’s tendency to spread false conspiracy theories has dangerous, real-world consequences—and he has no place in the White House.”

Background

This is far from the first time that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has peddled dangerous conspiracy theories: He is a known science denier, and many of his policies are based on far-right ideology, conspiracy theories, and misinformation.
