RFK Jr. Is Striking a Nerve. He Tells Me Why.

On the latest episode of Honestly, I spoke to the presidential candidate about why he’s polling at 20 percent among likely Democrats.

A few days ago, Joe Rogan offered Dr. Peter Hotez $100,000 to appear on his show to debate RFK Jr. on the subject of vaccines and public health. Not 48 hours later, thanks to Twitter, the ante is now more than $2 million and counting.
