Aaron Rodgers is waiting to be traded to the East Coast this offseason. He apparently is now endorsing a member of the coastal elite for President in the 2024 election, Robert Kennedy Jr. The Green Bay Packers are in the midst of trade talks with the New York Jets to send Rodgers to the AFC. While waiting for the deal to be finalized, Rodgers has returned to political controversy.

Kennedy Jr. is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated while running for President in 1968. Robert Kennedy Jr. announced his intention to run against President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination in next year’s presidential election. Kennedy Jr. is considered a controversial figure, as he’s known for being an anti-vaxxer, among other bizarre political leanings.
Rodgers’ endorsement of Robert Kennedy Jr. immediately brought up memories of Rodgers’ stance on the Covid-19 vaccine. Rodgers admitted he used language that he figured would be interpreted by the public and media that he received the Covid-19 vaccine before the 2021 regular season.
Rodgers wasn’t suspended for how he handled his vaccine status and dealt with the media because the league determined he didn’t mislead the NFL or his team. Other players in the NFL who do not share the same complexion in the league as Rodgers were suspended for misrepresenting their vaccination status during the 2021 season.
