Kyle Rittenhouse’s mom could barely make it through her appearance on Sean Hannity where she called railed on President Joe Biden for making comments about her son publicly.
Wendy Rittenhouse appeared on Fox News’ Sean Hannity show on Thursday night while her son’s criminal trial is underway. She decided to unleash on the current President claiming he defamed Kyle.
Following a 2020 Presidential debate, Biden tweet, “there’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”
The post included a clip that showed host Chris Wallace asking Trump about whether he condemned white supremacists following multiple police shootings.
The clip showed Rittenhouse carrying a semi-automatic rifle. “When I saw that, I was shocked, I was angry,” Wendy said.
“President Biden don’t know my son whatsoever, and he’s not a white supremacist. He’s not a racist. And [Biden] did that for the votes And I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son, he defamed him,” she added.
The interview comes as Kyle’s criminal trial continues this morning. He is charged with intentional homicide for killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber. Prosecutors also hit him with a attempted homicide for injuring Gaige Grosskreutz.
In August 2020, the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin was in an uproar after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse decided to drive from Illinois to Wisconsin. He armed himself with a semi-automatic. Kyle claims he drove down to protect a car dealership from rioters.
Joseph attempted to take the rifle when Kyle shot him. Later, Anthony then tried to take the gun away but was shot by Kyle. Gaige approached the defendant later but was also shot and taken to the hospital.
Rittenhouse maintains his innocence claiming his actions were in self-defense.
The trial is set to wrap up next week but has been full of shocking moments. Earlier this week, the judge, who has been harsh on prosecutors, had his cell phone go off in court. His ringtone was Donald Trump's rally song.
