(UnitedVoice.com) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr, the son of the late Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, is following in his father and uncle’s footsteps and running for the Democratic nomination for POTUS. However, he recently revealed his White House bid is costing his wife big time.
On the April 24 episode of the Breitbart News Daily podcast, RFK Jr. talked about his presidential bid. Host Joel Pollak asked the Democratic candidate about his thoughts on cancel culture. Specifically, he wanted to know if Kennedy’s wife, actress Cheryl Hines, is facing pressure in Hollywood because he is running to unseat the incumbent Democratic POTUS.
Kennedy claimed his wife is already feeling that pressure. He said that he didn’t “want to go into details” but explained his wife “has already lost” roles. The candidate claimed she lost a part on the very day he was recording the podcast. He went on to say, “I can tell you, yes, there is a cancel culture. It’s alarming.”

Hines has told the media she supports her husband’s decision to run for president. PEOPLE reported that she issued a statement on the same day her husband announced his run, making it crystal clear that she would be by his side. She called him a “fearless leader” who has dedicated “his life fighting for democracy.”
According to Breitbart, Hines faced backlash after releasing the statement. Democrats claimed Steven Bannon groomed Kennedy to run for president and expressed disappointment that she was going along with it. Some Twitter users declared they’d “lost all respect” for the actress in light of the developments.
The backlash from the Democratic Party has not dissuaded Kennedy from running for office. He has repeatedly said he wants to make America work for the American people and intends to fix the broken political system. Still, his chance of becoming the next Democratic nominee for president is considered a longshot.
