RFK Jr.’s VP Hopeful Aaron Rodgers Spreads False Sandy Hook Theories

(ReliableNews.org) – Aaron Rodgers, an NFL legend, is currently recovering from a torn Achilles. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has also named him as a possible running mate. The quarterback is currently embroiled in a scandal about a massacre that took the lives of 20 children and six adults in 2012.

On March 14, CNN shared bombshell allegations that Rodgers privately shared conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. The network claimed that he made the remarks to at least two people, including Pamela Brown, one of the journalists who broke the story.

Brown claimed that she met Rodgers in 2013 while covering the Kentucky Derby. She said that when she met him and heard she was a CNN reporter, he immediately started attacking the media for allegedly covering up important stories. Then, she claims he brought up the Sandy Hook shooting and told her it was an inside job carried out by the government. She asked him to provide evidence and he shared disproven theories, many of which Alex Jones was sued over by the families of the victims.

Another source claimed Rodgers told them, “Sandy Hook never happened…All those children never existed. They were all actors.”

Rodgers issued a statement denying he was ever “of the opinion that the events did not take place.” He called the shooting “an absolute tragedy.” The New York Jets quarterback said that he hopes America learns from the Sandy Hook and other massacres to identify signs that will allow authorities to prevent similar tragedies. He sent his “thoughts and prayers” to the families impacted by the shooting.

Like Robert F. Kennedy, Rodgers has stirred up controversy in the past over issues like vaccines. The Independent presidential candidate issued a statement through a spokesperson after the NFL player’s alleged comments came to light and said he “believes the Sandy Hook shooting was a horrific tragedy.”

Kennedy is set to make an announcement on March 26 in Oakland, California, about who he will choose as his vice president. He has said that he’s spoken to the football player and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura.
