RFK Jr. Bumped From Presidential Debates; Told to Take Conspiracy Theories Elsewhere

Ahead of the presidential elections, US President Joe Biden on Wednesday challenged Republican opponent Donald Trump to two debates. However, he made it clear that Independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK) has to find another forum to rant about his conspiracy theories.

In addition, Biden's reelection campaign advocated for completely excluding independent candidates from the debates, like RFK. At last, Biden and Trump have decided to debate in person in Atlanta the following month, marking their first face-off in the 2024 contest.

Kennedy or any other third-party candidates may be qualified, according the rules of the debate commission, provided they managed to get enough ballot access to garner 270 electoral votes and achieved a 15% polling average or above in many national surveys.

In an effort to get into the presidential debates, RFK is now claiming that Trump and Biden want to "exclude: him in order to avoid eight years of mutual failure."

Kennedy lamented in an X post shortly after the news, claiming that both Trump and Biden are "colluding" to prevent him from participating in the debate and that 70% of Americans are against the likely rematch.

He continued by saying that none of the leaders wants to acknowledge their mistakes and is "afraid" to disagree with him.

"Presidents Trump and Biden are working together to force the United States into a presidential contest that 70% of people say they do not want. He said on X, "They are attempting to keep me out of their discussion because they think I could win.

He went on to say that it is detrimental to democracy to keep serious candidates off the debate stage.

After changing his mind, RFK decided to run as an independent last year instead of taking on Biden in the Democratic primary.

Many believe that RFK, who disclosed in 2012 that a worm had consumed a piece of his brain, was manipulating Trump and Biden to win the presidency. However, he thinks he can win the campaign for the White House.

In addition to highlighting the fact that 43% of Americans identify as independents, he said, "Now is the time to do it if Americans are ever going to escape the hammerlock of the two-party system."

He continued to denounce Biden and Trump, referring to them as "the two most unpopular candidates in living memory."

"By excluding me from the stage, Presidents Biden and Trump seek to avoid discussion of their eight years of mutual failure including deficits, wars, lockdowns, chronic disease, and inflation," the president wrote.

In response to his remark, a member from X said: "Where did Trump say you could not debate? I heard Biden's representatives say that.

"For this, Biden and Trump are both enormous cowards. It is clear that they both do not think the US is a democracy. Instead of serving the public interest, they just want power to achieve their own agendas," another individual said.

In response to his article, one of Biden's detractors also said that "Biden can not possibly debate more than one person at once."

However, the user said, "It is probably best for you that way because Trump would expose you on that stage and your whole "mystique" among some would be over."

After Biden invited him to two debates, one in June and one in September, Trump readily accepted the offer.

Trump posted the following on Truth Social: "It is my great honor to accept the CNN Debate against Crooked Joe Biden, the WORST PRESIDENT in the History of the United States and a true Threat to Democracy, on June 27th."

"In the same way, I consent to the September 10th ABC News Debate versus Crooked Joe. Gratitude, DJT!" he said.

On June 27, in Atlanta, Georgia, there will be an open conversation. The venue of the second debate, which ABC will host, is yet unknown.
