Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted on charges of killing two people and injuring another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, traveled to Palm Beach, Florida, to meet former President Donald Trump, who called the acquitted teen a “big fan.”
“Since he was a fan, he wanted to know if he could come and say hello,” Trump said late Tuesday night on LBL. “(He) was a really good young man and what he experienced. .. That’s the prosecutorial misconduct. “
The former president and Rittenhouse, 18, showed signs of twin thumbs-up in a widely circulated photo on social media Tuesday night.
“He didn’t have to suffer through trial. He was going to die …. Kyle was dead, ”Trump told host Sean Hannity. “He’s a really nice young man.”
The sit-down with the real leader of the Republican Party came a day after Rittenhouse pierced Tucker Carlson’s show. Right-wing hosts asserted that the gunman was a “typical non-political” teenager.
Rittenhouse is being lured by Trump’s MAGA supporters and gun rights advocates, who say they have every right to fire at protesters because they fear for their own lives during chaotic protests.
Critics call him a trigger-hp teen who has no business playing police or paramedic on the streets of Flashpoint Kenosha, which exploded in riot after the police firing of black motorist Jacob Blake.
Legal analysts say Rittenhouse has benefited from a broader definition of self-defense in Wisconsin law. The case judge made a series of bizarre decisions that benefited Rittenhouse, including restricting prosecutors from calling the three victims who were shot by teenagers “victims.”
The teenager told Carlson that her life was different from what she had planned and was taking college prerequisites to become a nanny, but is now thinking about studying law. They plan to move from the Midwest, but are not sure where they will go.
“I go to bed less and live my life and enjoy it,” he said.
