The decade's most triggering comedy
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said during an interview this week that he has been censored on social media at the behest of the administrations of President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.
Kennedy made the remarks during a Thursday interview on Fox News with anchor Martha MacCallum following his testimony in front of Congress on the issue of censorship.
“I was invited to speak there because a recent federal court decision, which is a monumental decision … which, for the first time in history, ordered the White House to stop — to actually cease all communications with the social media networks — because they were manipulating information,” Kennedy said. “What the 155-page decision records is this unprecedented effort by the White House to silence his political opponents. The first person that they silenced was me.”
“So, President Biden came to off– and by the way, President Trump had censored me, too,” he continued. “Not for any misinformation, but what they called malinformation. That means, information, that while true, is inconvenient to the White House, and inconvenient, or clashes with, official orthodoxies.”
Kennedy said that just two days after Biden was sworn into office on January 21, 2021, the administration “ordered Instagram and Facebook to censor me and my entire account was taken down three weeks later.”
“And the censorship continues today,” he said. “When I made my campaign, my announcement speech on April 19th in Boston, YouTube took it down after five minutes. I never mentioned vaccines, I never mentioned anything — I was talking about Paul Revere.”
“The highly controversial Paul Revere,” MacCallum joked.
