The Left already has a bone to pick with the Democrat-turned-independent presidential candidate. But now he’s really angered them.

And RFK Jr.’s pick for vice president has Democrats filled with rage.

On Wednesday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign announced that he will be revealing his pick for a running mate on March 26 in Oakland, California.

Kennedy, who is an independent presidential candidate, has several high-profile names who are “at the top of his list.”

Those names include New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura.

Other possible names Kennedy was considering, include former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

According to the New York Times, Gabbard, Paul, and Yang have declined to be Kennedy’s number two.

Rogers and Ventura have sung a different tune however.

They’ve actually “welcomed” the idea of being Kennedy’s VP, according to The Times.

Back in April of 2023, Rodgers posted a “kennedy2024” hashtag on social media and has been a supporter of the independent candidate’s.

He also went hiking with Kennedy back in February.

Rodgers has been adamantly against the COVID-19 vaccine which Kennedy is also a critic of.

As for Ventura, he introduced Kennedy at an event last month in Arizona.

Kennedy is currently polling the best out of all the other third party candidates.

According to a HarrisX poll that was published on Monday, he is sitting at 12% in a hypothetical matchup between former President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden, and two other long-shot candidates.

RealClearPolitics has Kennedy at 12.4% in the same matchup.

Democrats already don’t like Kennedy because they feel like his campaign could take away votes from Biden and in turn help Trump win the presidency.

But if he picks Aaron Rodgers – a known COVID vaccine critic – as his VP, that would make their disdain for Kennedy even stronger.
