RFK Jr.s wife hangs herself

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husband’s rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs, hanged herself in a barn on their Westchester estate yesterday, sources told The Post.

The 52-year-old mother of four — the latest victim of a family dynasty cursed with tragedies — may have taken her own life because she was haunted by her broken marriage, her friends lamented.

“She was deeply troubled, abusing alcohol and prescription meds,” a close family friend said. “She had cause. She was used up and tossed away by Bobby. That was awful.”

SHE might have filed for divorce and kicked his sorry arse to the curb.

And, taken his money with her!

You’re right the Kennedy use the poor to strengthen their own power, the same way that Obama used the Blacks as a political organizing tool to get elected.

The Kennedy family has been very hard on their women. in that made for tv movie that HBO did on the Kennedy family, they have Jackie saying that her mother warned her that Joe Kennedy raised his boys to see what they wanted and take it, including women. They never held back and it just never ended, they are still doing that, taking, never giving.

“Mary said she was facing financial ruin, with American Express coming after her hard for an outstanding debt, along with several other creditors. In addition, she was concerned that Robert was about to substantially reduce the amount of financial support he gave her and she was terrified she would have to file for bankruptcy and lose her home.”

Yet, she was found by the housekeeper. Perhaps, she should have cleaned her own house if she couldn’t pay her bills. She sounds like a spoiled, selfish woman to me. I feel so sorry for her children.

“I remember being seated at a dinner next to Bobby around 10 years ago that she was also at — it was the first time I had met either of them — and he put his hand on my thigh under the table. We hadn’t even spoken but to say hello. He is such a dog that way.”

You have to wonder why any woman would marry a Kennedy.

How would a Kennedy face money problems, when that family is so wealthy?

I don’t have details, but I understood that old Joe Kennedy had set up trust funds worth many millions, which flowed down through the generations. RFK Jr. did not have any worries about how to pay his bills, or pay for his drugs, for that matter. So why would his estranged wife have money problems? Some things don’t add up.

Heck, the reason RFK Jr. can get on TV and lecture us about global warming and other liberal causes is because he doesn’t have to work for a living.

“I would rather have my daughter marry a musician than marry a Kennedy.”

What do you call an unmarried musician?

Homeless.

Kennedys: Can’t drive, can’t swim, can’t fly, can’t ski, can’t stay faithful, but they know what’s best for us.

She should have been drinking to *celebrate* breaking up with that phony scumbag.

Yeah, but apparently, she was only a kid when she first came under the Kennedy spell. She met Robert Kennedy through his younger sister, while at boarding school. Men like Robert Kennedy have a particular affinity for YOUNG girls, who are too young and stupid to understand that there is nothing personal in the passes that the men make at them. It’s just part of their style.

I know because I’ve seen it happen, not with anyone as grand as a Kennedy, but with the same privileged mind set. Men like a Kennedy never see a woman that they don’t try to seduce, the young are just more susceptible.

The Kennedys,like all other Democrats, ruin everything they touch or come in contact with.

Knowing these sick perverted mutants posing as human beings, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they gave her a bit of “assistance” with that rope.

I guess she didn’t think the monthly support check and hefty divorce settlement provided by RFK Jr. was gonna be enough to sustain her privileged lifestyle.

According to the article, she was an advocate for the same environmental causes as her husband.

“Well, at least there’s an hypothetical chance that some musician, somewhere, isn’t a drug addicted, wife beating creep.”

This musician isn’t. OTOH, music is just a hobby for me, much like alcoholism and date rape are for Kennedy men.

[ You really have to be in some deep trouble to hang yourself. Women don’t hang themselves....they take pills. ]

That reminds me of the people who commit suicide by shooting themselves in the head and chest multiple times and then drag their own dying corpses out to open field after typing out a suicide note on a typewriter.

The family is not cursed.
The Kennedys are self-centered Narcissists

They remind me of someone else....

First Name starts with B and last name starts with either an S or an O.
