The liberal left seemed very, very sure that Kyle Rittenhouse was some sort of racist monster that was going to wind up behind bars for a very, very long time.
Spoiler alert: The young man who killed two and wounded another during a race riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin was found not guilty on all charges, as it was determined by the jury that he was acting solely in self-defense.
For months leading up to this verdict, however, many on the left did their damndest to defame Rittenhouse, and now the young man is considering taking legal action. This includes a potential lawsuit against President Joe Biden.
During an interview aired on Monday’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Kyle Rittenhouse urged President Joe Biden to watch his trial “and understand the facts before you make a statement.” Rittenhouse also said Biden calling him a white supremacist is “actual malice,” and that he has attorneys looking into holding people who have spread falsehoods about him accountable.
Rittenhouse said, [relevant remarks begin around 6:05] “Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement.” He added that Biden calling him a white supremacist was “actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.”
After the subject of holding people who lied about him accountable came up, Rittenhouse stated, “I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now. So, I’m hoping, one day, there will be some — there will be accountability for their actions that they did.”
Claims of Rittenhouse’s white supremacist beliefs were exacerbated by the young man’s own actions, however, after it was revealed that the had posed for photographs with notorious hate group the Proud Boys, flashing the “OK/white power” hand sign for the picture.
