Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. responded to a scathing Vanity Fair article detailing some of his “darkest secrets,” including an allegation of sexual abuse and a photo of him eating what the newspaper claims is a dog.

In an interview with “Breaking Points” published Tuesday, Kennedy addressed some of the claims, but admitted that “there are a lot of skeletons in my closet.”

“The article is a load of nonsense,” he told presenter Sagaar Enjeti. “The photo where they said I was eating a dog is actually a photo of me eating a goat in Patagonia during a whitewater trip many years ago on the Futaleufu River. They say … they have an expert who identified it as a dog carcass. It’s just not true.”

Asked about the allegation of sexual abuse by a babysitter, Kennedy said he is “not a church boy.”

“I’m not running. I said in my… I had a very, very exuberant childhood. I said in my announcement speech that I have so many skeletons in my closet that if they could all vote, I would run for king of the world. So, you know, Vanity Fair is recycling 30-year-old stories. And I’m not going to, you know, comment on the details of any of them, but it’s, you know, who I am.”

Enjeti, assuming he was referring to the babysitter’s accusation, asked whether he denied it or not.

“I’m not going to comment on it,” he replied.

“Okay. Well, I gave you the chance,” Enjeti said. “And officially it’s a goat.”

In X, RFK Jr. also responded to the Vanity Fair story.

Hi @VanityFairYou know when your veterinary experts call a goat a dog, and your forensic experts say a photo taken in Patagonia was taken in Korea, you’ve joined the ranks of supermarket tabloids. Keep telling America that up is down if you will. I keep talking about how working families can’t afford homes or groceries because our last two presidents have gone on a $14 trillion debt joyride paid for by hardworking Americans. The trash can journalism of the DNC media may distract us from President Biden’s cognitive deficiencies, but it does little to advance the national conversation or lower the price of groceries.”

He later told NewsNation’s Chris Cuomo, “It’s a goat and you are what you eat.”

“I’m a very adventurous eater, Chris. I think you know that. I’ll eat pretty much anything. There are two things I wouldn’t eat. Well, three. I wouldn’t eat a human, I wouldn’t eat a monkey, and I wouldn’t eat a dog. I think I would eat anything else, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do those things, so it’s a goat and you are what you eat.”
