RFK Jr. doesn’t believe the ‘official story’ that Sirhan Sirhan shot his father alone — and wants a new investigation

Published

on

Robert Kennedy, Jr. has concluded there may have been a second gunman and is now publicly urging a re-investigation into the assassination his father, Sen. Robert Kennedy (D-NY), The Washington Post reported Saturday.

After months of research, Kennedy met in December with Sirhan B. Sirhan, the man convicted of killing his father. The December meeting at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Center reportedly lasted for three hours.

“There were too many bullets,” Robert Kennedy Jr. told The Post. “You can’t fire 13 shots out of an eight-shot gun.”

Kennedy, an attorney like his father, dismissed Sirhan’s trial as “really a penalty hearing.”

“It wasn’t a real trial. At a full trial, they would have litigated his guilt or innocence,” he explained. “I think it’s unfortunate that the case never went to a full trial because that would have compelled the press and prosecutors to focus on the glaring discrepancies in the narrative that Sirhan fired the shots that killed my father.”

Kennedy has now joined calls for a re-investigation lead by Paul Schrade, the former western regional director of the United Auto Workers, who was also shot in the head at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

“Once Schrade showed me the autopsy report,” Kennedy said, “then I didn’t feel like it was something I could just dismiss. Which is what I wanted to do.”

“I got to a place where I had to see Sirhan,” he explained. “I was disturbed that the wrong person might have been convicted of killing my father. My father was the chief law enforcement officer in this country. I think it would have disturbed him if somebody was put in jail for a crime they didn’t commit.”

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

Trump is unhappy in reality — so he’s inviting everyone into his world of make-believe: columnist

Published

on

Confabulation is an unintentional event where someone's memory creates "fabricated, distorted, or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world." Parataxic distortion is when a person tends to "skew perceptions" of others based on fantasy. Then there's political opportunism, a "diagnosis" that plagues politicians almost exclusively. Regardless of the cause, Washington Post syndicated columnist Michael Gerson noted President Donald Trump is not only creating his own reality, he's inviting his supporters to live inside of it.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
