New York Times Publishes Story That A Worm Has Eaten Robert F Kennedy Jr.'s Brain

The narrative is that RFK Jr., 68, is as compromised physically as Democratic president Biden.

The posted an article entitled "R.F.K. Jr. Says Doctors Found a Dead Worm in His Brain." The article posits that RFK Jr. has undisclosed health problems the public has yet to learn about.

"The presidential candidate has faced previously undisclosed health issues, including a parasite that he said ate part of his brain," says the article.

The narrative is that RFK Jr., 68, is as compromised mentally and physically as Democratic President Biden. Biden is running for re-election this year. He will be 81 on inauguration day, and appears to suffer from memory loss and other problems associated with old age. RFK Jr. is running as a third party candidate for president. In some polls, his support tops 10% of voters, the greatest support for a third party presidential candidate since Ross Perot in 1992.

Author Susanne Craig at the New York Times has written many articles critical of RFK Jr. and of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump. She has never written anything critical of US President Joseph R. Biden Jr., a man who is visibly aging.

"In 2010," Craig writes, "Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was experiencing memory loss and mental fogginess so severe that a friend grew concerned he might have a brain tumor. Mr. Kennedy said he consulted several of the country's top neurologists, many of whom had either treated or spoken to his uncle, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, before his death the previous year of brain cancer."

On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that Kennedy, who is running for president as an independent, once experienced a parasitic brain infection.

Kennedy’s campaign press secretary, Stefanie Spear, said in a statement responding to the Times article: “Mr. Kennedy traveled extensively in Africa, South America, and Asia in his work as an environmental advocate, and in one of those locations contracted a parasite. The issue was resolved more than 10 years ago, and he is in robust physical and mental health.”

According to the Times, Kennedy said in a 2012 deposition that, two years earlier, doctors had detected an abnormal spot on his brain amid symptoms of memory loss and mental fogginess. One doctor concluded it was caused by a worm that got into his brain and then died, Kennedy told the Times.
