RFK Jr's Brain Was Partly Eaten By A Worm. Of Course!

The New York Times is reporting something that probably won’t surprise you. Robert F Kennedy Jr. said that a health problem he experienced in 2010 “was caused by a worm that got into my brain and ate a portion of it and then died.” He has reportedly had quite a few health concerns, and the Times learned of the bizarre story after the paper obtained a divorce case deposition from 2012.

Via The Guardian:

Two years before the deposition, the paper said, Kennedy experienced “memory loss and mental fogginess so severe that a friend grew concerned he might have a brain tumour”.

Neurologists who treated Kennedy’s uncle, the Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy, before his death aged 77 from brain cancer in 2009, told the younger man he had a dark spot on his brain scans, and concluded he too had a tumour.

But Kennedy reportedly said a doctor at New York-Presbyterian Hospital posited another explanation: a parasite in Kennedy’s brain.

Speaking this winter, the paper said, Kennedy told the Times that at around the same time he learned of the parasite in his brain he was also found to have mercury poisoning, which can cause neurological problems, probably due to eating a lot of fish.

In the 2012 deposition, Kennedy reportedly said: “I have cognitive problems, clearly. I have short-term memory loss, and I have longer-term memory loss that affects me.”


Now 70, Kennedy has suffered other issues including a heart problem for which he has been repeatedly hospitalised and spasmodic dysphonia, a neurological condition that affects his voice.

The New York Times reports:

About the same time he learned of the parasite, he said, he was also diagnosed with mercury poisoning, most likely from ingesting too much fish containing the dangerous heavy metal, which can cause serious neurological issues.

“I have cognitive problems, clearly,” he said in the 2012 deposition. “I have short-term memory loss, and I have longer-term memory loss that affects me.”

There are a lot of reasons not to vote for RFK Jr, including that he was a “serial cheater who proposed to second wife Mary Richardson while still married to first wife Emily Black, and later allegedly encouraged Mary to commit suicide.” He’s also a dangerous anti-vax conspiracy theorist, who now we know has some serious health concerns.

And CNN? he’s RFK, Jr.. Please do not conflate him with his father. It does a disservice to all of us.
