Evening Brief: RFK Jr.’s campaign could soon haunt Trump

Trump henchman Steve Bannon spent months successfully recruiting conspiracy theorist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. into the Democratic primary, hoping to sow chaos in the process and undermine President Joe Biden. Instead, Democratic voters saw through the ploy, forcing Kennedy to pivot and run as an independent candidate. He kicked off his retooled campaign in a glitch-filled event that drew instant mockery

Hilariously, polling shows that the anti-science, anti-abortion, and antisemitic Kennedy pulls more votes from Donald Trump than from Biden. A worried Trump campaign is reportedly gearing up to unleash on Kennedy. Here is an interesting question: Will all the conservative media outlets that propped up Kennedy over the summer continue to do so? Or will they unceremoniously ditch him now that their chaos gambit has backfired?
