MSNBC rejected Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense team during closing arguments Monday after the prosecutor’s case was broadcast to a jury indicting the 18-year-old was guilty of murder.
Rittenhouse’s trial is closing after weeks of intensification in the courtroom, arguing with the jury that he intended to kill Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and Guy Groskrutz, who survived the altercation. The defense argued that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense.

MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson likened Rittenhouse to a “school shooter” and declared him an “enemy,” but analyst John Heilman said he was a “controversial domestic terrorist” who crossed state borders “for the purpose of shooting people.”
“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough said Rittenhouse was “running around shooting and killing protesters.”
“What a dark, dystopian scene. A 17-year-old boy is holding a rifle and running and firing at protesters,” Scarborough added.
