Tucker Carlson Tells Why Robert Kennedy Jr Is Really Hated

Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson explained in a recent episode of “Tucker On Twitter” why he believes the media dislikes Democratic presidential primary candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Carlson said that Kennedy Jr. is more reviled than Trump for his stance against vaccinations, citing a New York Times article in which the newspaper accused Kennedy of “shaking America’s faith in science.” He remarked that a casual observer might conclude that Bobby Kennedy was at war with the Enlightenment. 

He also noted that the LA Times claimed that Kennedy was a “threat to democracy” and that NPR’s coverage blasted Kennedy as a lousy candidate and a “human being.” 

He referenced a People magazine article about how Kennedy’s own family had voiced their disapproval of him.

Last week, the Democratic contender and son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy appeared on podcast host Joe Rogan’s show, where he expressed alarm over an uptick in the prevalence of autism and allergies among youngsters.

Carlson claimed that the press criticized Kennedy because he was unafraid to “notice the obvious” and raise pertinent concerns.

Carlson said Kennedy was observant of his environment and puzzled by the reasons behind its transformation. These abilities, Carlson quipped, were once thought crucial for scientists to have.

He said observation, empiricism, and persistent observing are the cornerstones of scientific inquiry. You can’t conduct science unless you’re willing to suspend your preconceptions and objectively evaluate what you can physically observe, feel, and smell, as well as the changes occurring right before your eyes. Neither can you invent art, journalism, or theology.

Carlson informed that Joe Rogan had offered Professor Peter Hotez of Baylor University $100,000 to discuss Vaccines with Kennedy. Hotez has made multiple TV appearances to counter what she calls “anti-vaccine disinformation.”

According to Carlson, Kennedy’s high approval ratings can be attributed to his willingness to challenge the status quo in the medical field by posing tough questions.
