This six-pack is a 10/10 distraction.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has shared a shirtless photo of his hunky son Conor amid ongoing backlash over his controversial COVID-19 comments.
The 69-year-old Democrat — whose bid for president has been blasted by members of his own family as an “embarrassment” — managed to divert attention away from his off-color remarks with the steamy snap, shared to Twitter on Monday.
“Happy birthday Conor,” RFK Jr. captioned the image of himself posing alongside his son, who turned 29.
In the pic, Conor — who briefly dated Taylor Swift in 2012 — is seen showing off his musclebound body with a wetsuit pulled down to his waist.
Conor hit headlines last year for revealing that he secretly enlisted to fight in Ukraine’s war against Russia.
“Like many people, I was deeply moved by what I saw happening in Ukraine over the past year,” he wrote in an Instagram post penned on Oct. 14. “I wanted to help. When I heard about Ukraine’s International Legion, I knew I was going, and I went to the embassy to enlist the next day.”
“I told one person here where I was, and I told one person there my real name,” Conor continued. “I didn’t want my family or friends to worry, and I didn’t want to be treated differently there. Going in, I had no prior military experience and wasn’t a great shot, but I could carry heavy things and learned fast. I was also willing to die there.”
“My time in Ukraine wasn’t long but I saw a lot and I felt a lot. I liked being a soldier, more than I had expected,” he concluded.
Conor is one of RFK Jr.’s six children, and he has seemingly inherited his dad’s love of health and fitness.
RFK Jr. attracted attention last month for his own gym-honed physique after he stripped down to do a series of push-ups.
“Getting in shape for my debates with President Biden!” the wannabe commander-in-chief teased.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, RFK Jr. again defended himself after controversially claiming COVID-19 could have ethnically targeted victims, but spared Ashkenazi Jews.
“I have never uttered a single antisemitic word in my life,” he stated during a meeting with former state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, founder of Americans Against Antisemitism.
RFK Jr., who has been accused of being a conspiracy theorist for panning the efficacy of vaccines, said he was merely explaining a National Institutes of Health grant.
He went on to claim that he was a “rock of Gibraltar” for Jews and the Jewish state, following the lead of his late uncles, President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Ted Kennedy; his late father, former Attorney General and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, and the late Presidents Harry Truman and Franklin Roosevelt.
While RFK Jr. still appears to have the support of son Conor, there’s another hunky Kennedy scion who has spoken out against his relative’s bid for president.
Jack Schlossberg — the son of RFK Jr.’s cousin, Caroline Kennedy — blasted the presidential hopeful in a recent video, tartly declaring: “He’s trading in on Camelot, celebrity, conspiracy theories and conflict for personal gain and fame.”
“I’ve listened to him. I know him. I have no idea why anyone thinks he should be president,” he savagely continued. “What I do know is, his candidacy is a vanity project.”
