It’s been decades since a Kennedy has run for president, but the family decided to bring the spirit of this year’s presidential race to their annual Fourth of July party: with a piñata of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s daughter, uploaded a photo of the piñata on Instagram Monday, which pictured the candidate mid-speech in a suit, tie and an American flag pin. The New York Daily News posted a screenshot of Kennedy’s now-deleted photo, which bore the caption, “It’s [a] yuge party!”
Kennedy, 28, took down the photo shortly thereafter, but not before the Daily News’ screenshot showed it gathered more than 200 likes.
The Kennedys, who host an Independence Day party at the family compound in Hyannis Port, Mass. annually, have weighed in on presidential politics recently. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, now the American ambassador to Japan, and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy both endorsed Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in the 2008 race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. endorsed the now-presumptive Democratic nominee in the 2008 cycle.
