    It is almost as though Joey Gargan decided to slip away before anyone noticed. And the funny thing about it is that he succeeded. So, Ted Kennedy cousin Joseph F. “Joey” Gargan, who was Kennedy’s close companion, won’t be around to answer any questions about “Chappaquiddick,” the upcoming film about the late Sen. Ted Kennedy and the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. Joey, 87, who was at Kennedy’s side that fateful night, died at his Virginia home December 12 and hardly anybody made the connection to Kennedy and Chappaquiddick

    If anybody feared that the upcoming Chappaquiddick movie would be a whitewash of Ted Kennedy, the recently released trailer should disabuse them of that notion. Legal Insurrection describes the movie as the "portrait of a weasel." Kate Erbland of IndieWire reviewed it as a Compelling Teddy Kennedy Biopic That Pulls No Punches.

    By the standards of the #MeToo movement, the late Senator Ted Kennedy was a monster, far worse than anything alleged about Harvey Weinstein. And he has never been held to account, by the media and historians, for his brutal crmies against women. He not only accidentally killed one of his prey, Mary Jo Kopechne, he engaged in a vicious sexual assault in public, in the so-called “waitress sandwich” attack. Readers unfamiliar with that incident are urged to read the undisputed account of the violent attack that was witnessed by fellow diners at Washington’s expensive La Brasserie restaurant.

    Coming on the heels of Darkest Hour is another biopic of note. Both Paul and I reported a while ago that there was a movie in the works on Ted Kennedy’s infamous incident at Chappaquiddick in 1969.
  • JFK Jr. Would Have Run for President, Says Jackie's Personal Assistant

    Lost potential is a common theme of Kennedy-family lore. It's hard not to imagine what Bobby, President Kennedy, and JFK Jr. might have accomplished, had they not died so young. John Jr. would be making a run for the White House right now, if he were still alive. At least, that's what Jackie Kennedy's former personal assistant thinks. "If her brother wasn’t gone, he’d probably be running for president," Kathy McKeon said in a new, wide-ranging profile of Caroline Kennedy in Avenue magazine. "When Caroline was growing up, she always said she wanted to be a wife and mother, and...

    HYANNIS PORT, Mass. — They’re America’s white-trash blue bloods. The Kennedy clan has been famous over the years for limitless political ambition, immense wealth, excruciating tragedy — and seemingly constant scandal. Their storied family tale began with an immigrant Irish family-done-very good and rose all the way to a US presidency, only to go from Camelot to trailer park.
  • Why Stop at Reassessing Confederate Monuments? What About the Kennedy Brothers?

    As we rewrite history and remove Confederate monuments deemed "offensive" when viewed through the prism of contemporary standards of morality, reasonable people ask: Where does one draw the line? The left, for example, reveres the Kennedy brothers, John, Robert and Edward. But if evaluated by today's standards of social justice, would these left-wing icons hold up? In Sen. Ted Kennedy's case, how does the monument-removing left feel about the kiss Kennedy blew Gov. George Wallace a mere 10 years after Wallace delivered what became perhaps that era's most infamous defense of segregation? At Wallace's request, Kennedy spoke in Alabama at...

    It's an old-fashioned summer on Cape Cod: sharks on the prowl, beaches closed and "glassy-eyed" Kennedys brawling with cops, under arrest and in protective custody. This time it was Max Kennedy, age 52, and his pouty 22-year-old daughter, Caroline Rose. You've heard of Bring Your Daughter to Work Day? For the Kennedys last weekend, it was Bring Your Daughter to Jail Night. [Snip] But look on the bright side of this Kennedy keg party. No women were raped, drowned, crippled or beaten to death with a golf club. There were no Skakels lurking in a tree outside, and no...

    Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound. [Snip] The arrests come after a brush with the law for another of RFK’s grandchildren, Conor Kennedy, who was also charged...

    On Tuesday, New York magazine published an essay by a 24-year-old law student who recently paddleboarded around Manhattan for the first time. “I signed up for the race because I thought it sounded cool,” writes our participant. “Of course, when I asked around, everyone said it was really hard and I’d better start training.” The smugness, the entitlement, the painfully obvious observation — one might wonder: Who cares? Until you look at the byline and realize: Oh, of course. Another Kennedy foisted upon us. Our diarist is none other than Jack Schlossberg, grandson of JFK, son of Caroline, accomplishment-free save...

    Former President Barack Obama returns to the spotlight when he officially receives an award for political courage from the John F. Kennedy family. Obama has been named this year's recipient of the Profile in Courage Award. The Sunday night award presentation takes place at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. The award is named after a 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book by the late president that profiles eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by taking principled though unpopular positions.

    Complete Headline: A floral flop! Caroline Kennedy models a VERY unflattering dress on the Met Gala red carpet - just hours after being hailed by Vogue as one of the 'best dressed of all time' Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather bizarre - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade. The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the late-Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy probably made the most shocking statement during his interview for CNN. Well, liberals will definitely be shocked, that's a sure bet. "Donald Trump could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to, he could easily be the next Teddy Roosevelt." Is this a clear sign of admiration or what? "Well, I think Donald Trump can be, you know, any kind of president he wants. He’s actually — he has this extraordinary opportunity because he's coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in...

    President Donald Trump's "America first" approach to foreign policy is "alarming," Caroline Kennedy, who recently resigned her post as U.S. ambassador to Japan, said Friday morning. "To be taken for granted, or to be insulted as an ally who has fought alongside the United States for example, with Australia, or who contributes a huge amount to American security, in the case of Japan and Korea, is alarming," Kennedy told NBC's "Today" anchor Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview. "I think that, hopefully, the president will realize the benefits of working with our friends and allies around the region." Kennedy resigned...

    Caroline Kennedy lost her Ambassador post in Japan when Trump took office. He sent her packing and hasn’t even bothered to name a replacement. But according to the New York Post, she’s not done with public service. Kennedy is planning to run for the U.S. senate in 2018. First, she’s going to be penning a memoir, but then she’ll be getting down to work. She plans to follow in the footsteps of her uncle Robert Kennedy, and run for a New York senate seat. She plans to target the seat of Democratic Senator Kristen Gillibrand. Or she could run for...

    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped a Kennedy – and a vaccine skeptic – to run a new commission on the safety of vaccines. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed his new role after a meeting at Trump Tower on Tuesday. He said Trump had asked him to head a commission on 'vaccine safety and scientific integrity' and that he had agreed to do so. Both Trump and Kennedy have have raised suspicions about vaccines despite their overwhelming support among scientists and physicians as a way to prevent the spread of deadly diseases that can infect infants and other children when the...

"Conor has always reacted against bullying," said Robert Kennedy Jr. "I'm happy he stood up for his friend."
