Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had a very good weekend and it could cause major trouble for president Joe Biden. As Biden continues to stumble across stages, Kennedy on the other hand is gaining traction in polls, picking up key endorsements and claiming victories on social media. In a poll conducted by CNN in May, Kennedy had 20% support in the Democratic primary while 60% said they backed Biden. Kennedy’s numbers will mostly likely increase after positive headlines over the weekend and Biden’s fall while at the Air Force Academy graduation. A large portion of Democrats believe Biden is too old for another term and his embarrassing fall will only strengthen this feeling.

On Sunday, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey officially endorsed Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for president and declared that he gave the party the best chance to beat a Republican challenger. Dorsey shared this Twitter post as the endorsement:

Someone replied to the post asking Dorsey whether he was endorsing Kennedy or just predicting. He responded, “both.”

In another break for Kennedy, his Instagram account was reinstated on Sunday after being banned since 2021. According to Reuters:

Kennedy, who is making a long shot bid to challenge Biden for the Democratic nomination, was removed from the photo-sharing platform in 2021 for reportedly sharing debunked claims about COVID-19 in violation of its policies on the pandemic. According to The Hill:

“As he is now an active candidate for president of the United States, we have restored access to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s, Instagram account,” a spokesperson for Instagram and Facebook parent company Meta said in a statement to The Post.

Kennedy, who is the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, tweeted last week that his presidential campaign was unable to set up an Instagram account. The Meta spokesperson told The Post that the recrticiton was an error, saying that the platform “quickly fixed” the issue.

Amazingly, things continued to getter, when Elon Musk responded to Kennedy’s tweet by inviting him to a Twitter spaces conversation, similar to one held with Ron DeSantis. Kennedy accepted Musk’s invite and the two will speak with each other on the platform on Monday afternoon.

Last week, actor James Van Der Beek posted a viral video demanding that the DNC hold a primary debate for president. There is clearly a strong sentiment among Democrats that they want a different option than Biden. Can Kennedy fill this role? This weekend was a step in that direction.
