The world of politics is at a crossroads with the fitness sphere. Democratic presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was previously in the news for his impromptu shirtless workout video going viral. Months later, the politician has once again teased a fitness challenge with POTUS Joe Biden for an intense debate session as the Presidential Elections of ‘24 draw closer.

A recent Twitter post by RFK Jr. pointed fingers at Biden’s fitness, putting his eligibility to run for re-election in question. Kennedy urged the President to indulge in an energetic debate on critical issues that would dispel all or any speculations about his fitness.

Ahead of the elections, the 69-year-old environmental lawyer is contending for the Presidential position. Taking his fitness as a pro, he challenged Biden, 80, to a lively discussion that would end the debate on whether Biden is fit to run for re-election or not. This stunt surfaced months after RFK Jr. flexed his robust physique on social media.

“President Biden could put to rest any concerns about his fitness for office by engaging me in a vigorous, issues-oriented debate. Let’s end the speculation and let the voters see for themselves,” Kennedy wrote in a tweet. Moreover, this was a response to a prior update by CNBC correspondent Brian Sullivan that teased the discussion.

Interestingly, the concerns about Biden’s abilities are not only expressed by the Republican opposition but also by a few Democrats and the media, per sources. The Democratic National Committee has not agreed to organize any such debates between the two politicians. Notably, RFK Jr. is drawing significant crowds despite trailing Biden in the polls. Moreover, it’s safe to say that the writer’s fitness stunt probably impacted his campaign positively.
