Aaron Rodgers Reacts to RFK Jr. Message Amid VP Rumors

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Commentators and media personalities are trying to read social media tea leaves, and the latest divination is the prediction that football star Aaron Rodgers will be the vice-presidential pick for independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Newsweek is reporting that Rodgers “liked” a video post that Kennedy placed on X (Twitter), and claims “rumors have been circulating” that Kennedy will pick the football player for his running mate. Kennedy’s message was about a proposed ban on the wildly popular social media platform TikTok. TikTok is owned by a Chinese company called ByteDance and is believed to be in part a propaganda or monitoring tool used by the communist Chinese government.

The House recently passed a bill requiring ByteDance to sell TikTok (presumably to a U.S. or non-Chinese entity) within 180 days or face a U.S. ban for the app. The Senate still needs to take up the bill and its chances there are unclear, but President Joe Biden has said he will sign the bill if it passes both chambers.

Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, became a hot media topic when he told podcast host Joe Rogan he was “immunized” but would not take a vaccine because of an allergy to one of the ingredients. His view that individuals are allowed to make their own medical choices led to loud condemnation from the media.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is widely known for his beliefs that vaccines are not as safe or extensively tested as is claimed and that they may sometimes be responsible for injuring children.

Media fortune-telling turns around as quickly as the news cycle, though, and more recent reports claim Kennedy has signaled he will not pick Rodgers for his VP. Yahoo Sports writes that Kennedy posted a video on March 16 stating that his choice was “not any of the people they’ve been talking about.”’

Most recently, the New York Post reported that Kennedy would likely tap Democratic donor and entrepreneur Nicole Shanahan to be his running mate. Shanahan paid for Kennedy’s Super Bowl commercial and was once married to a co-founder of digital giant Google.
