(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a recent post on his Substack blog, conservative impressario Roger Stone suggested that two 2024 presidential candidates—former President Donald Trump ande recently declared anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr.—form their own ticket in the upcoming election.
Stone noted that a mere 37% of Democrats support the unpopular President Joe Biden in his endeavor to run again, making 2024 ripe for a bipartisan coalition ticket that could unite MAGA conservatives and traditional, red-pilled liberals against the radical, Marxist Left.
Kennedy, whom Stone called a “scion of the Kennedy political legacy,” holds some progressive views, but he has made enemies on the Left by calling into question vaccine efficacy and safety.
Trump, meanwhile, despite his broad support on the Right, has raised eyebrows with his ongoing defense of the controversial COVID vaccines, even as evidence began to mount concerning adverse health affects among young people in particular.
Both, however, seem aligned in their view that government overreach and corruption are the No. 1 problem plaguing the nation.
Kennedy, who is currently running as a Democrat, has stated in the past that his top priority will be to end the “corrupt merger between state and corporate power that has ruined our economy, shattered the middle class, polluted our landscapes and waters, poisoned our children, and robbed us of our values and freedoms.”
And though Kennedy’s platform may be popular across America, Stone warned that the Democratic establishment would certainly not allow him to win the primary.
“Just as the Democrat Party machinery cheated Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders out of the Democrat presidential nomination in 2016 and again in 2020; that same party machinery—now within the firm control of Barack Obama—can be counted on to kneecap RFK Jr. in the Democrat nominating process,” he wrote.
According to Stone, Trump and Kennedy were formerly “good friends,” and they could be interested in a future political reunion—this time on a presidential ticket.
“Given America’s state of peril, if RFK performs better than expected, the former President should consider the drafting of RFK as the Republican vice presidential candidate in a ‘bipartisan’ unity ticket,” Stone wrote.
He also argued that, given the criticism the former President has faced for allowing Americans to suffer under COVID lockdowns, Trump might be able to revitalize his image by partnering with Kennedy, who has made himself the anti-vax, anti-Fauci candidate.
Trump’s partnership with RFK would “silence those within the Republican Party who are today critical” of Trump’s handling of “the Covid-19 pandemic,”wrote Stone.
Such a move would also win over “thousands of Democrats and Independents disgusted by Biden’s fumbling foreign policy and the implication of the collapse of U.S. economic dominance to vote for Trump,” he added.
The move could add fuel to Democrat conspiracy theorists who have long sought to promote the notion that the QAnon movement wields major influence over mainstream conservative thought.
Among the bizarre theories covered credulously by leftist media outlets like Rolling Stone is one that Kennedy’s first cousin, John F. Kennedy Jr., may have faked his death in a 1999 plane crash and will re-emerge to be Trump’s running mate.
