In this conversation from The Sopranos S03E07, what does Junior's answer mean?

Tony: And let me ask you something about this JFK worship of yours, what about Hoffa and the teamsters?

Junior: That was the brother.

Tony: Oh.

He was talking about JFK's brother Robert who, as Attorney General, went on a crusade against the mob. RFK was instrumental in getting Hoffa put away on a jury tampering charge. Many believe this activity led to JFK's assassination by a paid mafia operative, though no reliable evidence supports this.

    I saw a video of an exchange between Hoffa and RFK and they really disliked each other. And this was not a very sophisticated conversation; IIRC RFK asks Hoffa if he was a little girl or something.
