The Kennedy clan gathered at their Hyannis Port compound on Cape Cod over the weekend for their annual Fourth of July festivities, and took some time to attack Donald Trump.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s daughter Kathleen, between known as Kick, posted a photos of a pinata of The Donald from a family party over the weekend.
‘It’s yuge party!,’ wrote Kick in the caption of the Instagram post, which also showed some of her family members milling about in the background.
The post was liked by a number of Kick’s famous friends including Glenn Close, Hardball host Chris Matthews’ son Thomas, model turned E! reality star Jessica Joffe, singer Santigold and publishing heiress Anne Hearst, who commented on the photo: ‘Is that a piñata ? Very funny.’
Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s daughter Georgina also liked the post as did Jamie Johnson, who produced and directed the 2003 documentary Born Rich about children born into wealthy families.
The lack of Trump love from America’s most famed political family comes as no surprise, with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. supporting Hillary Clinton not only in this election but also in 2008 when she ran against Barack Obama in the Democratic primary.
He even came to her defense when she was attacked over comments she made about his late father, who was killed in California during his presidential campaign.
With Obama racking up victory after victory and being close to clinching the nomination in June 2008, Clinton was asked why she had not made the decision yet to drop out of the race.
She responded to this by saying: ‘My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.’
That quote, given to the Argus Leader, shocked many from both parties and dealt what some believed was the final blow to her failed campaign.
Robert Kennedy Jr. however came to her defense, saying in a statement at the time: ‘It is clear from the context that Hillary was invoking a familiar political circumstance to support her decision to stay in the race through June. I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband’s 1992 race, both of which were hard-fought through June.’
He then added: ‘I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense.’
