Cheryl Hines Doesn’t Agree With Her Husband RFK Jr.’s Anne Frank Comments At An Anti-Vax Rally

January 25, 2022 / Posted by:

Over the weekend, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. did what Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been known to do, which is to do the most to fight vaccines of all kinds. RFK Jr. hates vaccines, but especially the COVID-19 vaccines. And he held his own anti-vaccination rally in Washington, D.C., where he invoked the horrors of The Holocaust while preaching about the dangers of COVID vaccines. A whole lot of people heard that and instructed Cheryl Hines to come get her husband. She heard everyone, and she would like to make it clear she definitely doesn’t sanction RFK Jr.’s careless and insulting Holocaust comparison.

RFK Jr. decided to make the Holocaust connection in regards to life for unvaccinated Americans, but not in the way you might think he would. Like, this isn’t a simple, cut-and-dry “This is like the Holocaust” situation. No, his comparison was actually much worse. Because RFK Jr. dared to suggest Jewish people were better off during the Holocaust than unvaccinated Americans are right now. Is part of the Kennedy Curse that one of them is cursed to say the dumbest shit imaginable? via The Hill:

In a weekend anti-vaccine rally in Washington, Kennedy, a vocal opponent of getting shots to protect against being hospitalized or dying from COVID-19, suggested that life for unvaccinated Americans is tougher than it was for people in Nazi Germany.

“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could hide in the attic like Anne Frank did,” Kennedy said.

Obviously, that didn’t sit well with…well, just about everyone. Because as many of us learned in elementary school, Anne Frank and her family were discovered hiding from the Nazis, and she died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. There’s literally no glass-half-full perspective of the 1940s Nazi occupation and subsequent death camps. And yet! RFK Jr. believes he has found it. I mean, Holocaust bad, yes. But at least they weren’t being told by their boss at Southwest Airlines that they need to be vaccinated against a deadly viral disease or else they’ll be fired. Can you even imagine? The indignity.

Many people spoke out against RFK Jr.’s very stupid comment, like the Auschwitz Memorial, which accused RFK Jr. of “exploiting” the Holocaust. And a whole lot of people began tagging Cheryl on Twitter, and asking what was going on with her husband. Cheryl originally dipped her toe into the conversation by suggesting that they’re simply not going to agree on everything. When people pointed out that it’s a conversation about the Holocaust, and not a marital dispute over which way to hang the toilet paper, she offered a better explanation the next day.

That’s right, it’s reprehensible! And let’s face it, it’s probably getting a little tiring for Cheryl, considering this actually isn’t the first time her husband has pulled this crap. About a year after they got married, RFK Jr. publicly apologized for linking vaccines to autism and calling it a modern-day Holocaust for children. Just like last time, RFK Jr. is apologizing again for the comments he made on the weekend. Around the same Cheryl was on Twitter slamming her husband’s comments, he was tweeting this:

Okay or hear me out: just don’t use examples of genocide to illustrate your thoughts on COVID vaccines? Like, it’s not hard. Pick something else. Literally anything else. Talk about how you hate vaccine mandates more than when you hear people at a party ask “Oh lord, is Cheryl still married to that weirdo?“.
