INTENSE 2-HOUR sit-down: Aaron Rodgers tells Tucker what happened when RFK Jr. offered him the VP spot


New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers admitted he “thought about it” when Robert F. Kennedy Jr. asked him to be his running mate.

He admitted his initial surprise at the offer during an interview on “The Tucker Carlson Show,” and said he was intrigued with the idea of restoring America “to what she used to be.”

In a wide-ranging discussion in the two-hour session, the 40-year-old NFL star described himself as “super patriotic,” adding, “I love this country, and I want to see it thrive. And I think there’s a lot of people that don’t give a sh-t about it.”

“There’s just a lot of issues right now that seem really un-American. And I think there’s a lot of red-blooded Americans. People are like, ‘How can Trump have such support?’ Well, people are fed up with it, and he speaks the rhetoric of taking back, making America great again, and stuff,” he continued, referring to former President Donald Trump.

“My thing is, he had four years to do it and didn’t drain the swamp, and whether he just got scared because of what he learned when he was in there, I think it’s very plausible,” Rodgers continued.

“But that’s why I was interested when Bobby came to me and said, ‘Would you think about being my running mate?’ And I said, ‘Are you serious? I’m a f–king football player.’ But I love this country, and I’d love to be a part of bringing it back to what she used to be,” he said of the invite from the Independent candidate.

Kennedy went on to choose Nicole Shanahan as his VP pick. But Rodgers has continued to be a vocal supporter of the former Democrat. He told Carlson he “definitely” considered his friend’s offer to step into a political career.

“Oh yeah, I thought about it,” Rodgers said. “I definitely thought about it because I love Bobby, and I just wanted to hear what he had to say about it.”
