Rogan, Brosnan, Schneider & Clapton Cast their Support for Kennedy
Endorsements for the candidate multiply
Joe Rogan, the popular podcast host of The Joe Rogan Experience, which reaches nearly 190 million listeners, on September 23 said he would vote for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. if the candidate makes the ballot.
Rogan is one of the many high-profile figures who have endorsed Kennedy, or appeared to do so. He joins comedic actor Rob Schneider; James Bond star Pierce Brosnan; maverick actor Woody Harrelson; and rockstar Eric Clapton.
“Endorsements are social proof and a key way to counter the nonstop media assault against Mr. Kennedy’s candidacy,” said Candace McDonald, the Managing Director of American Values 2024, the super PAC supporting Kennedy’s run. “From actors to school moms to tech billionaires to independent business owners, each individual's endorsement showcases Kennedy's broad appeal to Americans across party lines.”
During his podcast, Rogan said he’d love to vote for Kennedy. But he worried that he wouldn't get the chance.
“I have a feeling they’ve got some rascally tricks up their sleeves to keep him from ever challenging and there's not going to be any debates that's for sure,” Rogan said, referring to the DNC’s consistent, undemocratic efforts to rig the primaries.
Rogan’s support is deeply rooted in his admiration for Kennedy’s work as an environmental attorney and his contribution to facilitating the Hudson River cleanup via the Waterkeeper Alliance.
“He’s a fascinating guy, I really enjoyed talking to him,” Rogan said, referring to his three-hour-long June 15 episode during which he interviewed the presidential hopeful. “He really cares about people,” he said. “he genuinely does. I think he's a good person.”
On June 25, Schneider tweeted, “Inspiring, hopeful, courageous and most importantly (like his father) compassionate.” The 59-year-old Deuce Bigalow actor stood smiling next to Kennedy. The Saturday Night Live alum declared it his “honor” to support Kennedy.
On August 11, Harrelson donned a hat expressing his support for Kennedy’s campaign alongside Kennedy’s wife, Cheryl Hines. Harrelson has all but endorsed Kennedy, his support for the campaign evident- Harrelson and Kennedy have been close friends and share beliefs, especially about the military-industrial complex in the U.S.
Clapton and actor Brosnan are also on board. The 007 actor was photographed with Kennedy at a fundraiser in Point Dume, California on Thursday, September 21. Kennedy tweeted the photo.
On September 19, Clapton performed at a private fundraiser in Los Angeles for “truth, unity, peace, and posterity,” as he said in a video. The Brentwood event raised over $2 million for the campaign and a super PAC supporting Kennedy.
Kennedy’s endorsements also include doctors, lawyers, community leaders, activists, college students, and more. His message of empowering the American middle-class and reuniting a splintered country is resonating.
“There’s never been more of a time in history that we’ve needed a man like Bobby Kennedy,” said Dr. Pierre Kory in his endorsement video for Kennedy.
A pulmonary and critical care specialist, Dr. Kory tweeted his endorsement for Kennedy on August 28. Talking about the consistent negative portrayal of Kennedy by mainstream media, he pointed out how the candidate has always spent his career “standing up for the common man, litigating against corporate and governmental bad actors on issues affecting the environment and our health.”
Kennedy is the only presidential candidate who has expressed deep concern for America’s children, over half of whom have chronic illnesses. Dr. Kory said that is one major reason why he is supporting Kennedy.
American Values 2024, the super PAC supporting Kennedy’s campaign (and the publisher of The Kennedy Beacon), has been relentlessly pursuing endorsements. Here below are additional endorsements Kennedy has received via American Values.
