This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reportedly criticized President Joe Biden for neglecting to provide Robert F. Kennedy Jr. with Secret Service protection after a man with a loaded gun showed up at one of his campaign events.
“This isn’t a Left or Right issue. The Biden administration should give Robert Kennedy Jr. a security detail, now. Given his tragic family history, both his father and uncle were horrifically assassinated, and this latest serious security incident, Biden shouldn’t mess around.” Cruz said while speaking on the “Verdict” podcast.
“In this instance, you’ve got RFK Jr., number one, you’ve got his unique personal story. His father was murdered while running for President of the United States. Bobby Kennedy was murdered as a candidate for the Democratic nominee for president and before that his uncle, John F. Kennedy, was murdered while being President of the United States. Given that history and given that people are just nuts.” he continued later in the conversation.
It’s unclear whether or not the man intended to harm the dark horse presidential candidate.
Cruz stated that it was a “no-brainer” that RFK Jr. warrants Secret Service protection if he desires it.
“And the reason I believe the Biden administration hasn’t granted it is because if they did, it legitimizes him, they would have to say he’s a major candidate and the approach of the Biden White House is, RFK who? We never heard of him. Nope, nope. Nobody running. Nobody in the Democrat primary, doesn’t exist. This is a coronation — Joe’s down in the basement. And I think it is purely political.” Cruz stated.
