2024 Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy stunned Piers Morgan last week on national television while talking about the COVID vaccine.
Morgan had Kennedy on to discuss his candidacy for the democratic party nomination.
Morgan brought up Kennedy’s vaccine stance, which has been slandered as “anti-vax.”
“I’m not anti-vaccine,” Kennedy told Morgan.
Kennedy further said his position on vaccines is they should be subject to the same levels of testing that other medications require.
“Listen, I fought to get mercury out of fish for forty years — and nobody called me anti-fish.”
He added: “And I think everybody wants safe vaccines, and as we all now recognize, the COVID vaccines were neither safe nor effective.”
Morgan pushed back, saying the COVID vaccine wasn’t any more unsafe than other vaccines.
Kennedy said the COVID vaccines caused more problems than they averted. He said excess deaths are higher in heavily vaccinated countries than in countries with low vaccination rates.
“We in our country, we’re one of the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world, we also have the highest COVID death rate in the world,” he said.
“So we have 4.2% of the global population, we have 16% of the COVID deaths — that’s not a success story.”
Morgan quickly cut-off Kennedy and said that he was out of time.
A recent Fox News poll shows that Kennedy is supported by 19% of Democratic primary voters.
However, the Democratic Party has stated Biden has no intention of participating in any primary debates.
Kennedy said his mission during his presidential campaign and hopeful presidency is to “end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power that is threatening now to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism in our country.”
Kennedy was 14 when his uncle, President John F Kennedy, was assassinated.
