RFK Jr. Throws 💸 at…Republicans, Anti-Vaxxers, and Alien Podcasters? 🛸🤔
TL;DR: Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign finance reveals some interesting payments. Including money handed over to some prominent anti-vaxxers, conspiracy lovers, and yes, even Republicans. Makes us wonder, “Whose team is he playing for?” 🎭
Is it “Money Monday” at the Kennedy campaign office or is RFK Jr. just splashing cash on the most eclectic mix of people we’ve seen since that last house party we weren’t invited to? 🎉
1. Money on the Right?
According to campaign disclosures, Kennedy’s team made payments to Republicans. This includes a neat $5,000 to F Street Partners, a firm that proudly supports right-wing causes. Another surprising payment went out to Helen Brady, a Republican who didn’t score a congressional seat in 2020. And let’s not forget Robert Lucero, another Republican who didn’t quite make the cut in 2022. I mean, they say keep your friends close and your…political opponents closer? 🤨
2. Say No to Vaccines…or History Lessons?
Among the recipients is Del Bigtree, a leading figure in the anti-vax world, who thought it was a brilliant idea to compare vaccines to the Holocaust. Yep, you read that right. Remember, this is the same dude who founded the anti-vax group, Informed Consent Action Network. Question for ya, does informed consent include making controversial historical analogies? 📜💉
3. Conspiracy & Controversy Combo!
Kennedy’s not stopping at just payments to Republicans and anti-vaxxers. There’s also money headed to those spreading sketchy health claims. Like Moms Across America, which likes to link GMOs to autism. Even though, you know, science says otherwise. 🌽🚫🧬
4. Extra-Terrestrial Ties?
Let’s dive deeper into the rabbit hole. Payments were also made to an artist and podcaster frequently gabbing about…wait for it…aliens, witchcraft, and (our personal favorite) reptilian humanoids. Now, that’s one podcast episode we’d love to listen to, right after our own: “Campaign Spending: Aliens or Advisers?” 🎙️👽
But, despite the intriguing payments, it’s essential to remember, everyone’s allowed to spend their cash how they want. Even if it does have us raising our brows more than our morning coffee does.

So here’s the million-dollar question, or perhaps the $13,550-question (looking at you, KFP Consulting payment 🕵️): Is RFK Jr.’s campaign an avant-garde political statement or just the most outlandish spending spree in 2023? What’s your take? 🔥🍿🤷♂️
