By R.M., Politicus:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the late-Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy probably made the most shocking statement during his interview for CNN. Well, liberals will definitely be shocked, that’s a sure bet.
“Donald Trump could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to, he could easily be the next Teddy Roosevelt.”
Is this a clear sign of admiration or what?
“Well, I think Donald Trump can be, you know, any kind of president he wants. He’s actually — he has this extraordinary opportunity because he’s coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in our history with the possible exception of Andrew Jackson,” Kennedy continued.
“And you know, both of them, Jackson and Trump came in, they were — people were sickened, they were outraged when Jackson came in and they thought it was the end of the world and he became a — unless you were an American-Indian, he became a very good president in defending the country against corporate power and really democratizing America in many ways.”
“Trump does not have obligations, he could really be an extraordinary president.”
It’s just getting better.
“You know, I think he can do anything he wants because he is not — he is not bound by ideology. He is less bound by ideology than any president probably that we’ve had this century.”
“He said to Leonardo DiCaprio the other day that he wanted to be the next Teddy Roosevelt, and he can easily do that.”
“I think he can be any kind of president he wants. I think he could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to.”
This is probably the most amazing statement so far, and it’s pleasing to see that it comes from such an important person.
