Months before winning fans over with his ravens, The Blast reported that RFK Jr. had refuted the viral speculations of him campaigning as Donald Trump's vice president. In January, the politician cleared the air at the season 12 premiere of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

He attended the Los Angeles event with his wife, Cheryl Hines, the lovebirds looking radiant while posing for pictures. However, their demeanors changed when Kennedy Jr. was asked if he would ever consider serving as Trump's vice president.

The couple might have addressed the VP rumors privately as Hines smirked at the question while her husband pointed at her with a sweet smile before replying: "I don't think that my marriage would survive it."

"I think he's right," Hines chimed in. Meanwhile, Kennedy Jr. clarified that his only interest in the presidential campaign was to become the next ruler of the United States and not his opponent's right-arm man.

"It's very much behind the scenes at this stage. As we progress, you might see it bubble up a little bit more. Bobby can bring new people to the polls."
