There are very few certainties in life.
But when it comes to American politics, there’s one thing that always seems to be a certainty.
Good or bad… the Kennedy family will ALWAYS be involved.
And according to one New Yorker report, this latest Kennedy-family political connection is definitely BAD.
According to a new report, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy was the whistleblower who worked on a coronavirus task force led by Jared Kushner where he said he was asked to understate coronavirus death numbers.
When describing the task force's composition, Max Kennedy said "It was the number of people who show up to an after-school event, not to run the greatest crisis in a hundred years."
Kennedy also alleged that he was told to create a model that predicted coronavirus deaths in the United States would only reach 100,000. According to the latest figures, deaths have surpassed 200,000 across the country.
According to the report, Kennedy was required to sign a nondisclosure agreement, but chose to break it because he "was so distressed and disturbed" by the experience.
Kennedy said the volunteers on the coronavirus team had no prior experience and were ordered to give preference to friends of President Donald Trump.
"It was such a mismatch of personnel. It was one of the largest mobilization problems ever. It was so unbelievably colossal and gargantuan. The fact that they didn't want to get any more people was so upsetting."
He called the program "a family office meets organized crime, melded with 'Lord of the Flies,'" and said, "It was a government of chaos."
But why was Kennedy on the task force to begin with?
According to the New Yorker report, the 26-year-old RFK descendent became involved in the Trump administration's coronavirus response effort after a friend recommended he volunteer for Kushner's task force; the President's son-in-law and senior advisor, the friend explained, was searching for young people who could work for free.
Though Kennedy is a Democrat, he decided that joining the Republican-led group was the right thing to do. "It was such an unprecedented time. It didn’t seem political—it seemed larger than the administration," said Kennedy.
Was Max Kennedy really trying to help? Or was he politically motivated to sabotage the Trump White House?
One thing is for certain… we’ll be sure to hear from this Kennedy again!
