Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, slammed the media and Democratic establishment for attacking her son and preventing him from getting a fair trial.
“That Joe Biden labeled my son as a white supremacist—he doesn’t even know Kyle,” she said in a recent interview with the InfoWars’s War Room webcast.
Rittenhouse allegedly shot three people in self-defense, killing two, during violent riots last August in Kenosha, Wisc.
The 17-year-old Antioch resident said he went to Kenosha to protect a business from vandals and looters following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in the city.
After being cornered by a group of protesters, he attempted to flee. He discharged his .223 rifle after one of the rioters lurched toward him and others threatened his life.
However, Democrats were quick to vilify him, and Biden characterized Rittenhouse as a white supremacist in one of his campaign ads.
“Kyle is a good young man, who will help you no matter what,” his mother said.
“And with Joe Biden, I will take him down,” she continued. “You don’t talk about my son like that. He can’t even get a fair trial because of Joe Biden.”
Although charged with six crimes—including two counts of homicide—he was recently released on bail, with actor Ricky Schroder and MyPillow founder Mike Lindell helping foot the $2 million bill.
Adding insult to injury, however, Kenosha officials recently charged him with yet another crime: violating the city’s curfew.
The new count, separate from the six charges already filed against Rittenhouse, appeared on Monday in Kenosha County online court records after prosecutors filed a revision to the original criminal complaint,” according to the Kenosha News.
The citation does not carry a criminal penalty, and is technically defined as a failure to comply with an emergency management order of state or local government.
The six other charges Rittenhouse faces, however, do carry criminal penalties:
- first-degree intentional homicide
- first-degree reckless homicide
- two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety
- attempting to carry out a first-degree intentional homicide
- possessing a dangerous weapon while under the age of 18.
If he is convicted, he could get up to life in prison.
