Rittenhouse calls out Biden over ‘white supremacist’ attacks

Kyle Rittenhouse has criticized President Joe Biden’s early accusations that the teen is a “white supremacist” in the wake of being found not guilty for defending himself in a shooting that left two men dead and another injured last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“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,” Rittenhouse said in his Monday interview on Fox News with host Tucker Carlson.

Rittenhouse also said that Biden linking him to white supremacists was “actual malice,” that he claims was “defaming [his] character to say something like that.”

What Biden said

After a 2020 presidential debate, Biden blasted then-President Donald Trump on Twitter for refusing to disavow white supremacists.

The video, which was a campaign ad,  featured Rittenhouse carrying a gun during the Kenosha riots in 2020.

No apologies

According to Newsmax, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Biden will not issue an apology to Rittenhouse following his not guilty verdict, despite Biden calling him a “white supremacist” in 2020.

“This is about a campaign video released last year that used President Trump’s own words during a debate as he refused to condemn white supremacists and militia groups, and [former] President [Donald] Trump, as we know from history, and as many of you covered, didn’t just refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage, he encouraged them throughout his presidency,” Psaki said at a press briefing Tuesday.

“So, you know, what we’ve seen are the tragic consequences of that – when people think it’s OK to take the law into their own hands instead of allowing law enforcement to do its job,” she said.

Psaki added: “And the president believes in condemning hatred, division, and violence. That’s exactly what was done in that video.”

The controversy will likely continue, and all eyes will be on Rittenhouse’s lawyers, who might already be in the process of building multiple defamation lawsuits again members of the media, and possibly the current president.
