Kyle Rittenhouse responds to President Biden implying he's a white supremacist: ‘It's actual malice’
Kyle Rittenhouse appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Monday, where he gave his first televised interview since being acquitted on all charges stemming from shooting three protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020. The incident occurred shortly after the police shooting of Black motorist Jacob Blake, when Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, fatally shot protesters Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, as well as wounding Gaige Grosskreutz. Since then, Rittenhouse has become a polarizing figure in the both social and political realms. “This wasn't a political case,” Rittenhouse said. “It shouldn't have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race. And the ways people are twisting this, it's just sickening.” During his campaign, Biden tweeted about then-president Trump not disavowing white supremacists and shared a video which featured Rittenhouse. Tucker Carlson asked him, “What did you make of the president of the United States calling you a white supremacist?” Rittenhouse replied, “Mr. President, if I would 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.” Carlson followed up with the question, “That's not a small thing to be called that?” Rittenhouse replied,“No, it's actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.” Rittenhouse’s attorney Mark Richards has blasted left leaning news sites like CNN and MSNBC as well conservative politicians looking to profit off his client. And several legal analysts think Rittenhouse has grounds for a potential defamation suit against President Biden. Carlson asked if he plans to “hold some of these liars to account.” “I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now,” Rittenhouse said. “So I’m hoping one day there will be some — there will be accountability for their actions that they did.”
