Remember when the illustrious Douglas Harriman Kennedy kicked a nurse to the floor because she tried to stop him from taking his newborn son outside of the hospital “for fresh air”? It turns out that there was a very good explanation for that.
“The son of slain Sen. Robert Kennedy invoked his dad’s 1968 assassination yesterday as he explained why he tried to snatch his newborn son from a Westchester County hospital … my father was taken away from me when I was a baby,” Kennedy said after an appearance in Mount Kisco Town Court. “The only thing I wanted to do that night was to be with my son and hold him in my arms.”
Because he’s a victim, you see.
Is he saying he’s a victim of post-traumatic stress disorder? Because you know who else is a victim of PTSD? Florence Nightingale! And she was a nurse. And DHK kicked a nurse! And who knows if Florence’s mother ever compressed her carotid arteries to keep her upright while she was feeding little Flo?
