Kyle Rittenhouse‘s mother joined “Hannity” for an exclusive interview Thursday in which she slammed Joe Biden for casting her son as a White supremacist one 12 months in the past.
“When I saw that I was shocked, I was angry. President Biden don’t [sic] 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,” Wendy Rittenhouse mentioned.
Wendy drove her son to the Antioch police station to report he was concerned in a Kenosha capturing, in line with Rittenhouse testimony.
In Kenosha, protests and riots erupted after the police capturing of Jacob Blake. Blake, who was 29 years previous on the time, was paralyzed from the waist down on account of the accidents he sustained through the encounter.
Rittenhouse was charged with two counts of murder for capturing Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, with an AR-15. The third particular person Rittenhouse shot, Gaige Grosskreutz, survived and testified Monday.
Rittenhouse was additionally charged with possessing a weapon by an individual below 18, and a number of counts of reckless endangerment.
At trial, the prosecution tried to convey that the defendant went to the riots and had a gun with him as a result of he supposed to make use of it. The defendant pleaded not responsible to all costs and testified that he fired his weapon, all eight occasions, in self-defense.
Wendy mentioned when she watched the tape proven at trial, “I see this man trying to kick my son in the face …. When I look at the video with that guy pointing a gun to my son’s head, I thought: he was going to die.”
Rittenhouse’s mother added that her son “has a lot of healing to do” and experiences “nightmares.”
Rittenhouse was supplied with a gun by a good friend, Dominick Black, whereas in Kenosha, in line with the latter’s testimony. He didn’t carry the AR-15 throughout state strains as some in the media have reported. Black was charged with two counts of deliberately giving a harmful weapon to an individual below age 18, inflicting demise, in line with a legal criticism.
The protection moved twice to get the gun costs dropped – illegally possessing a weapon by an individual who’s underage – however Judge Bruce Schroeder denied the motions.
Host Sean Hannity requested if Wendy believed her son obtained a good trial.
“The judge is very fair. The people that I talked to that lived in Kenosha all their lives. They told me that Judge Schroeder is a very fair judge and he doesn’t allow no nonsense [sic] in his courtroom.”
Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger was scolded a number of occasions by the Kenosha decide.
On one event it was for asking witness Drew Hernandez, who videoed the riots and protests, about his determination to retain an lawyer for offering video footage as proof for either side.
Hernandez testified that Rittenhouse tried to defuse tensions.

Binger had mentioned, “Since Aug. 25 2020 this is the first time you have told your story … I’m making the point that after hearing everything in the case now he’s tailoring his story to what has already been introduced.”
“This is a really grave constitutional violation for you to speak concerning the defendant’s silence,” the decide mentioned.
“That was just an utter embarrassment for the prosecution,” Rittenhouse’s spokesperson mentioned on “Ingraham Angle” Wednesday. “It is clear that this district attorney’s office should have never brought charges. I mean, they did [bring charges] without any meaningful investigation and I think what the nation has learned was the state still doesn’t know what version of events they want to go with.”
In one other contentious second from Thursday, Binger objected when a witness was evaluating the timing points of video footage that he mentioned was not beforehand disclosed to the prosecution. The prosecutor argued that it violated a previous order signed by the decide to which the protection on the time didn’t object to.
“I think it’s a fundamental fairness issue, your honor, if I’m being held to obey the court’s orders, I’m asking that the defense be held to that too,” Binger mentioned.
The decide responded, “I was talking yesterday about the Constitution of the United States and how the Supreme Court has interpreted it for 50 years. That’s not what we are talking about here today.”
Thursday was the ultimate of eight days of proof heard by the courtroom; 31 witnesses from either side took the stand.
On Monday, the protection and prosecution will start closing arguments; every is allotted two and a half hours to influence the jury for the final time.
