RFK Jr. Says Trump Mugshot Strategically 'Worked Very Well'

 August 31, 2023

On Aug. 29, RFK Jr. stopped by for an interview with Fox News' Jesse Watters.

During that segment, Kennedy proved that he is completely different than the other liberals out there.

Instead of pretending that America's federal liberals are behaving reasonably by indicting Trump, RFK Jr. treated viewers like adults and admitted to us what we already know:

The two sides are playing games against each other.

And Trump has the upper hand right now.

Even though he's a Democrat, RFK Jr. was forced to admit that Donald Trump's play of using his own mugshot as a publicity stunt worked VERY well.

WATTERS: Have you seen the Trump mug shot?

KENNEDY: Yes, I did see it.

WATTERS: What did you think?

KENNEDY: It was an interesting and probably very shrewd decision for him to put on that very defiant face.

I think it’s very popular with his base.

WATTERS: Do you think the mug shot appeals to the Democrat base in any way?

KENNEDY: I had a mug shot when I was — I was a resident in Puerto Rico in 2001 when I was doing a protest against the Navy on a lawsuit that I eventually won that got the Navy out of Vieques.

But when you’re arrested and you get that mug shot, you have a strategic decision about whether — how you want to look. I wondered whether he practiced it in front of a mirror or whether he was just angry at the time and that reflected what he did.

But I thought, from a strategic point of view, it worked very well for him.
