    It looks like he's going to be on the ticket in November. I think he should get his own thread. He's about to become well funded, and it's going to be a professionally run campaign no doubt. I don't think it's out of the question that he get's Perot like numbers, and even if he get's 1/4 of that it could be a disaster for the Biden campaign that is probably looking at a few thousand votes in a few states turning the election anyway.

    There is going to be money behind this campaign from all sorts of angles. No matter what anyone thinks about RFK, it would be a terrible mistake to not take this campaign seriously. He might take some from Trump for sure, but he's going to take more of the anti Trump vote from Biden, and Biden can't really spare any votes. Not all people who were going to vote for Biden would disagree with the things RFK has said about vaccines, and he's not going to be spending his time campaigning on just vaccine skepticism.

    There are many more people voting for Biden who aren't enthusiastic about Biden than there are on the other side.

    Asuper PAC supporting Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has begun polling his support as an Independent, one of the strongest indications to date that the long-shot Democrat is set to announce a party affiliation switch.

    The poll, conducted by the firm John Zogby Strategies and commissioned by the American Values 2024 PAC, comes amid growing speculation — fueled by Kennedy himself — that he will leave the Democratic Party in the upcoming weeks.
     
    Independent presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr initially approached motivational speaker Tony Robbins to be his running mate, but the speaker declined to join his ticket.

    Mr Robbins was among the first people that Mr Kennedy approached late last year, contacting the speaker at least twice, according to CNN.

    Mr Robbins reportedly said it wasn’t the right time for him to run for office, due to family and business obligations. The conversations between Mr Robbins, 64, and Mr Kennedy, 70, made clear that they have political differences.

    The motivational speaker has advised several world leaders, including US presidents of both parties……..

    Mr Kennedy is also reported to have spoken to former Democratic Hawaii Rep Tulsi Gabbard, who has now left the party and has also been in discussions regarding Mr Trump’s possible VP picks.

    Other possible VP candidates for Mr Kennedy include Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and former presidential and New York mayor candidate Andrew Yang.……

     


    LOL. He thought that he had judo flipped the reporter.




    He doesn't have an MD. And Virologists who spend their careers on this topic know less than him?

    The problem with conspiracy theorists is that they think they're smarter than everyone in the room. However, it's actually the other way around. They don't understand the topic. But their insecurity (yes, because they know deep down they aren't very intelligent) forces them to expound on a topic they know very little. A defense mechanism to connect simple things that they do know with complex ideas beyond their comprehension. "I know a lot about bioweapons"....Seriously?????

    Casual anti-Semitism as well.
     
    ….Shanahan, a 38-year-old Californian lawyer and tech powerhouse, is being discussed for one of the biggest positions on the planet – with longshot presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr rumoured to be tapping her for vice president on his ticket.

    Her name was first reported as a VP possibility by Mediaite, who noted that the website domain www.kennedyshanahan.com had been registered on March 13, though the site appeared to be offline on Wednesday.

    Shanahan may not have the same name recognition or star status as other possible choices – NFL provocateur Aaron Rodgers, former governor/wrestler Jesse Ventura, and self help guru Tony Robbins, for example – but she has famous friends with deep pockets, experience with enormous wealth and power, and a hardscrabble backstory that make for the consummate campaign catnip.

    The daughter of a Chinese immigrant, Shanahan has donated millions to reproductive research and other causes – while racking up an unusual list of claims to fame. She’s founded and sold one startup; earned a fellowship at Stanford; given birth to a daughter; established a foundation; and survived a headline-grabbing alleged love triangle between her Google-founder then-husband and Elon Musk – just two of the major power players circling Shanahan’s orbit.

    People, according to Shanahan, have been at the centre of much of her career; she has gone so far as calling herself a woman “with a very big and open heart who loves innovation but not at the expense of humanity.”……….

    Just to correct the Independent’s article she is not making a bid for the White House. She is engaging in an ego trip with a complete whack job. All of which proves that any publicity is good publicity.

    Sounds like she’s buying herself a place on the ticket.

    After hearing her speak today, I really think Shanahan is probably going to be the best VP nominee on any ticket in 2024.

    That's probably not going to be a popular opinion. We know one of the main reasons he picked her is about the money she can put into the campaign, but she seems like someone who is going to be around in politics for a while.

    Of course, even Sarah Palin was able to nail one speech, but Shanahan seemed authentic at least.
     
    The very fact that she would run on a ticket with him is disqualifying, IMO. He’s a complete loon with dangerous ideas, he lies and is a narcissist similar to Trump. Since she would run with him, she doesn’t have any ethics or morals either.
     


    So, I didn't make the connection until this thread post. I was aware of the rumor that Elon musk had an affair with the Google founder's wife and damaged Musk's friendship with him. When that heated up, musk went as far as seeking out the guy and took a selfie w the him to prove the rumor false.

    Full transparency: Both Musk and Shanahan denied it.

    Probably as reliable as any other polling in the past few years.

    The result was 5 votes for Trump, 1 for Biden and 1 for a third party if RFK Jr. wasn't running.

     
    Donald Trump has claimed that Robert F Kennedy Jr’s presidential run is providing “a great service to America” by syphoning votes away from President Joe Biden – despite concerns the Independent candidate could also damage the Republican former president’s chances.

    Taking to Truth Social just after RFK Jr unveiled attorney and Silicon Valley investor Nicole Shanahan as his running mate, Mr Trump declared: “RFK Jr is the most Radical Left Candidate in the race, by far. He’s a big fan of the Green New Scam, and other economy killing disasters.

    “I guess this would mean he is going to be taking votes from Crooked Joe Biden, which would be a great service to America.

    “His running mate, Nicole Shanahan, is even more ‘Liberal’ than him, if that’s possible. Kennedy is a Radical Left Democrat, and always will be!!!”

    Mr Trump went on to insist: “It’s great for MAGA, but the Communists will make it very hard for him to get on the Ballot. Expect him, and her, to be indicted any day now, probably for Environmental Fraud! He is Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, not mine. I love that he is running!”……
