Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, is slamming Joe Biden for “defam[ing]” her son as part of his political attacks on President Trump.
The younger Rittenhouse is on trial in Wisconsin for shooting and killing two violent protesters during a riot in Kenosha, and shooting and wounding a third. He’s accused of murder but the jury, which is to start deliberating on Monday, heard even prosecution witnesses outline the scenario as self-defense.
But Biden had, back in September, posted a video in his attacks on President Trump that accused him of failing “disavow white supremacists.” It included a brief exchange with television personality Chris Wallace bullying Trump by telling him to “say it” about “white supremacists.”
Biden’s video included an image of Kyle Rittenhouse in the streets of Kenosha interspersed with images of white protesters in Charlottesville and Portland.
