Environmental group calls on Robert F. Kennedy to end his presidential campaign, citing benefits for Donald Trump.

During the show, a caller named Sharon from Minnesota expressed her concerns to Kennedy. She began by telling the host, Pedro Echevarria, that it was an honor to speak with Kennedy, given his famous family name. However, her tone quickly changed as she addressed her own political affiliation as a Democrat.

Sharon questioned Kennedy's claim to be a Democrat, implying that he may only be identifying with the party to increase his chances of winning.

She expressed her desire for a third party and criticized Kennedy for his conspiracy theories, which she said reminded her of the divisive lies propagated by former President Donald Trump.
