Kennedy: Shakes from inherited disorder — ‘not that big a deal’

Or was he scared after insulting the party bosses? The same bosses that dragged his uncle across the finish line in 1960. 

Gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy speaks before the Cook County Democratic Party, delivering his campaign platform for a possible endorsement at Erie Cafe on Monday, March 27, 2017.
Calling it “more of a nuisance than a disability,” Chris Kennedy on Tuesday acknowledged that he suffers from a hereditary disorder that causes tremors — a day after the Sun-Times reported that the gubernatorial candidate’s hands were shaking during a meet-and-greet with Cook County Democratic leaders.

“I wanted to set the record straight. The shaking is a condition I’ve lived with my whole life called familial [tremors.] It runs in the family. Doctors don’t know what causes it other than it is hereditary and does not cause impairment — more of a nuisance than a disability. In fact, many of my family members live with it. It doesn’t limit any of us in any way,”

With each generation, the Kennedy clan gets uglier and uglier. They also get more liberal too. Ugly yellow teeth and a pasty face with too much money in his pocket and a head full of white guilt. What will he do for the state? Answer: he will do what every other Democrat will do - raise taxes, increase regulations on business, attack the middle class and traditional American values. Oh and get us even deeper into debt. The difference? The media will hide the hanky panky as they always do, since they are one and the same with the Democrat Party. They are the leftist revolution.

The 19th Ward Chicago Irish still think that they are Irish. They are not and those in Ireland will be quick to point that out.

Hey, this kid might take a page out of his uncle's philosophy and get the $ deal on the right track. I voted for Rauner,but the Dems. are stopping him at every turn so I'm thinking give this kid a shot. Goofy Irish pols will always kiss a Kennedy's ass particularly in the 19th.
