Robert F Kennedy Jr has acknowledged his unsanitary practice of using the airplane lavatory without shoes by pretending to apologize for his unacceptable behavior at 30,000 feet.
On a recent podcast, Justin Haskins, the executive editor at The Heartland Institute, a libertarian think tank, revealed that he had taken a photo of the presidential candidate walking barefoot up the aisles to the bathroom in the first-class section of the plane.
“Mr. Haskins was appalled as he witnessed the man enter the restroom without socks or shoes, something he had never seen before. He found it absolutely repulsive, don’t you agree?”
Robert F. Kennedy, the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who served as the 35th President, is currently campaigning as an independent candidate for the 2024 presidential election. He previously ran as a member of the Democratic party, but his campaign was short-lived.
The barefoot candidate’s picture was deemed exclusive by Mr. Haskins and other conservative podcast hosts, who joked that it could potentially damage his entire presidential campaign.
However, Mr. Kennedy seems unconcerned about his mistake of being barefoot being revealed.
In a video shared with TMZ by Mr. Kennedy, he publicly discussed his struggles with his toe while in an airport lounge.
Mr. Kennedy expressed gratitude for your efforts in maintaining the integrity of politicians and ensuring their adherence to societal standards.
He sarcastically stated that being called out for going barefoot on an airplane was unforgivable, and promised that it would never occur again.
However, the initial embarrassment quickly dissipated when the camera zoomed out from Mr. Kennedy, showing that he was once again without shoes – this time while seated in the airport lounge.
Mr. Kennedy is observed casually tapping his hands and toes while sitting.
The potential future leader has begun utilizing the controversy to promote his run for the 2024 election.
Mr. Kennedy posted a picture of himself without shoes on in the airport lounge, with the phrase “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Secret Service” displayed.
The controversy involving airplane etiquette started when the hosts of The Heartland Institute’s In The Tank podcast, known for advocating against climate change, shared a photo during a recent episode.
Mr. Haskins confessed to attempting to covertly capture some photographs of the presidential nominee during the flight. He then alleged that he witnessed Mr. Kennedy Jr. stand up and make his way to the restroom on the plane.
“As I observed him walking towards the bathroom, I noticed that the man was barefoot and without socks. Additionally, the floor was littered with repulsive food,” he recollected.
“Mr. Haskins was appalled when he saw Mr. Kennedy enter the restroom without any socks or shoes on – a sight he claimed to have never witnessed before in his entire life. He proceeded to show the picture he took of Mr. Kennedy walking barefoot, expressing his disgust.”
“This individual is running for the presidency, and yet he chooses not to wear shoes and socks while flying first class on a plane. What kind of behavior is this?”
The three additional hosts, who are also employed by the think tank that denies the existence of climate change, chuckled and indicated markings and potential food debris on the plane’s floor.
According to Mr. Haskins, a woman had accidentally spilled her food in the aisle before Mr. Kennedy Jr. supposedly walked down the plane without shoes on.
Mr. Haskins announced to his colleagues that this man must be removed from the race immediately.
According to Jim Lakely, the vice president of The Heartland Insitute, allowing individuals in positions of power to walk barefoot on airplanes would lead to the downfall of our country.
Although the podcasters believed that their viral photograph of RFK’s feet could harm his campaign, he is currently receiving more support in polls than any other independent or third-party candidate in recent history.
