NFL star Aaron Rodgers has dealt a blow to President Joe Biden and endorsed his 2024 Democrat primary challenger Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
The Green Bay Packers legend made the endorsement on social media as he shared a promo for Aubrey Marcus’ podcast interview with Kennedy.
Rodgers wrote “kennedy2024” under the clip which he shared on his Instagram stories.
As Slay News reported, RFK Jr. has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to challenge President Biden for the Democratic Party’s nomination.
Kennedy is the nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy and the son of former New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
He said before he announced: “If I run, my top priority will be to end the corrupt merger between state and corporate power that has ruined our economy, shattered the middle class, polluted our landscapes and waters, poisoned our children, and robbed us of our values and freedoms.
“Together we can restore America’s democracy.”

Two days before he filed paperwork to run, Kennedy said:
“The collapse of U.S. influence over Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom’s new alliances with China and Iran are painful emblems of the abject failure of the Neocon strategy of maintaining U.S. global hegemony with aggressive projections of military power.
“China has displaced the American Empire by deftly projecting, instead, economic power.
“Over the past decade, our country has spent trillions bombing roads, ports, bridges, and airports.
“China spent the equivalent building the same across the developing world.
“The Ukraine war is the final collapse of the Neocon’s short-lived ‘American Century.’
“The Neocon projects in Iraq and Ukraine have cost $8.1 trillion.
“Hollowed out our middle class.
“Made a laughingstock of U.S. military power and moral authority.
“Pushed China and Russia into an invincible alliance.
“Destroyed the dollar as the global currency.
“Cost millions of lives and done nothing to advance democracy or win friendships or influence.”
