Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. defended former President Donald Trump on Thursday after a jury in a deep blue part of the country returned a guilty verdict against him.

The case brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg — who is backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros — has been controversial from the start and has remained so throughout with nearly every facet showing what critics and various legal experts have alleged is bias against the former president, including the judge who presided over the case, the legal theory used to bring the charges, the instructions given to jurors for deliberations, and more.

RFK Jr. — a lifelong Democrat who only recently became an Independent because he was unable to overtake Biden as the Democrat Party’s nominee — said that the party’s entire plan to stop Trump was to beat him with the criminal prosecutions initiated by Democrat prosecutors.

“The Democratic Party’s strategy is to beat President Trump in the courtroom rather than the ballot box,” he posted on X. “This will backfire in November. Even worse, it is profoundly undemocratic. America deserves a President who can win at the ballot box without compromising our government’s separation of powers or weaponizing the courts.”

“You can’t save democracy by destroying it first,” he continued. “The Democrats are afraid they will lose in the voting booth, so instead they go after President Trump in the courtroom.”


Another Democrat who defended Trump was former Illinois Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich, who posted on X: “I love Trump more today than ever! When you’ve lived through it yourself you recognize when they do it to someone else. The political fix was in from the beginning. Disgraceful and corrupt convictions of the leading candidate from the opposition party by a handpicked politicized Dem judge who denied a former President a chance to put on a defense and allowed ridiculously unlawful jury instructions. That Dem Judge and those Dem prosecutors ought to go right to F’n jail for what they are doing to our democracy and our country.”
