It's been less than a month since Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmental lawyer turned anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist, announced that he would be running for president in 2024. Kennedy, who is the son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, has been a controversial figure in American politics for years. He has been a vocal opponent of vaccines, claiming that they are linked to autism and other health problems. He has also been a critic of the pharmaceutical industry and the government agencies that regulate it.
Kennedy's political career began in the 1980s, when he worked as a prosecutor in New York City. He later became an environmental lawyer, focusing on issues such as water pollution and climate change. He has been a strong advocate for clean energy and has criticized the use of fossil fuels.
In recent years, however, Kennedy has become known for his controversial views on vaccines. He has been a vocal opponent of mandatory vaccination laws and has claimed that vaccines are linked to autism and other health problems. He has also been accused of spreading misinformation about vaccines and of being influenced by anti-vaccine activists.
