Martin Sheen Endorses Joe Biden, “West Wing” Pal Bradley Whitford Says Actor Has Nothing to Do with RFK Jr


Martin Sheen has nothing to do with Robert Kennedy Jr.

The famed actor supports Joe Biden for president. So says his “West Wing” pal Bradley Whitford who wrote on Twitter:

There’s a story going around saying that Martin Sheen is supporting @RobertKennedyJr for president. The story is incorrect. Martin asked us to post this on his behalf. “I wholeheartedly support President Joe Biden and the democratic ticket in 2024. Sincerely, Martin Sheen”

Sheen was advertised by a conservative book publisher as a participant in a birthday fundraiser and birthday party for Kennedy. Dionne Warwick was also, and she disavowed it yesterday. The event itself has disappeared.
