Ethel Kennedy, the matriarch of one of the richest and most powerful families in the world, is apparently an admirer of Che Guevara. She even has a framed photo of the Communist revolutionary on the marble mantle of her Palm Beach vacation home.
This was revealed when her grandaughter, Mariah Kennedy Cuomo, whose father is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, posted a family photo in which Guevara's photo was visible in the background. Kennedy Cuomo quickly deleted the picture once people noticed Guevara's photo.
Ethel Kennedy's son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., stated:
“My mom loves Che Guevara. Her dog is named Che. My mom has a subversive streak.”
A bit awkward, considering that the Kennedy administration spent much of its time trying to overthrow Communist rule in Cuba.
