Robert Kennedy, Jr. is the son of the late Robert Kennedy, and the nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy. He is a lawyer and staunch environmentalist. Many of his court cases involve claims of product safety violations and pollution by corporations.

He is also currently co-host of the liberal talk radio show Ring of Fire, syndicated by Westwood One (Saturday afternoon, 3-6 PM EST). He is a generally stalwart fellow and "friend of the working man."

In the last few years, however, he has succumbed to vaccine hysteria and makes the sad mistake of peddling false hope regarding the vaccine/autism conspiracy theory, a stance which earned him the chair of Donald Trump's "vaccination safety" committee. This is to the point where his family members distanced themselves from him.[1] In addition, Kennedy endorsed the conspiracy theory that the Republicans rigged the 2004 election.[2]
