RFK Jr: A Worm Ate My Brain

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In a shocking revelation, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a third-party presidential candidate, disclosed that he suffered a health issue in 2010 due to “a worm that got into my brain and ate a portion of it and then died.”

This information emerged from a divorce case deposition dated 2012, which The New York Times accessed, cited by The Guardian.

Two years prior to this deposition, Kennedy had been experiencing significant cognitive impairments, including memory loss and mental fogginess, to such an extent that a friend feared he might have a brain tumor.

Neurologists, who previously treated his uncle Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts before his death from brain cancer in 2009, identified a dark spot on Kennedy’s brain scans and initially diagnosed him with a tumor.

However, Kennedy later recounted that a physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital suggested an alternative diagnosis—a brain parasite.

During a discussion this winter, Kennedy told the Times that around the time of discovering the brain parasite, he was also diagnosed with mercury poisoning, likely from excessive fish consumption, which could contribute to neurological issues.

In the 2012 deposition, Kennedy expressed concern about his cognitive health.

“I have cognitive problems, clearly. I have short-term memory loss, and I have longer-term memory loss that affects me,” he said at the time.

Yet, in a more recent interview, he affirmed his recovery from these cognitive difficulties.

When questioned about whether his health issues might impact his presidential capabilities, Kennedy’s spokesperson, Stefanie Spear, remarked, “That is a hilarious suggestion, given the competition.”

Now at the age of 70, Kennedy has contended with other health problems including heart issues requiring multiple hospitalizations, and spasmodic dysphonia, a neurological disorder affecting his speech.

Despite these challenges, Kennedy, a descendant of a notable political family—including his father, former U.S. Attorney General and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and his uncle, President John F. Kennedy—has been keen to demonstrate his physical robustness, contrasting himself with Joe Biden, the oldest president ever elected at age 81, and Donald Trump, the 77-year-old Republican contender.

Kennedy has chosen not to disclose his medical records, a decision also mirrored by Biden and Trump in this election cycle.

His campaign, which is characterized by his role as a prominent anti-vaccine advocate among other controversial stances, is seen as potentially diverting crucial votes from both Biden and Trump, amidst general public discontent with these candidates.
