Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. caused a stir on social media when he posted a video of himself shirtless, performing push-ups in jeans.
Shaping up for Biden Debates
The tweet came just a day after another viral video showed him impressively bench pressing. Kennedy humorously captioned the push-up video, “Getting in shape for my debates with President Biden!”
The online fitness community and conservative activists were quick to praise Kennedy for his physical prowess and impressive physique displayed in the bench press video.
Jason Helmes, a respected fitness coach and owner of Anyman fitness, tweeted his admiration, declaring that the video should serve as inspiration for all men, calling Kennedy a “tank.”
As Kennedy competes in the Democratic primary against President Biden, he has primarily communicated his message through podcast platforms, with the Joe Rogan Experience being one of the most notable ones.
The Importance of Physical Fitness in Leaders
This has earned him newfound support from unexpected corners, such as Ashley St. Claire of the Babylon Bee, who tweeted that she suddenly feels inclined to vote for RFK.
Not just limited to online praise, “Sol Brah,” a well-known health influencer, shared that he has seen Kennedy at Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach, California, and has been impressed by his dedication and hard work.
The endorsement by such influencers has sparked discussions about the importance of physical fitness in leaders and politicians, with many expressing the belief that they should prioritize fitness and strength.
Even fitness influencer Alexander Cortes weighed in on the matter, declaring himself a single-issue voter for the upcoming 2024 elections.
Jacked and Tan
He amusingly stated that whoever is the most “JACKED AND TAN” will have his vote, and in his opinion, RFK Jr. fits that bill perfectly.
With his recent viral fitness videos garnering attention and admiration, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has successfully added a unique element to his political campaign, appealing to fitness enthusiasts and drawing support from unexpected quarters.
