White House press secretary Jen Psaki not only refused to apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse on behalf of President Joe Biden during Tuesday’s press conference, but actually accused him of acting like a vigilante.
Is this government begging? a lawsuit?
Biden of course vilified the teen last fall during his campaign by connecting him to the leftist election year villain – racism. Now that Rittenhouse has been found to have legally defended himself from a mob during a riot last year that Democrats encouraged, Biden finds himself on the defensive.
He essentially labeled a minor accused of being a white supremacist last year in this ad:

Now, the chickens will likely return home to nest, as Rittenhouse behaved within the law, and Biden convicted him of being a gun racist in front of the entire country when he We’re going to court. There’s also the fact that Biden was a private citizen at the time he defamed a child, so he could be wide open to being served with a civil lawsuit.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, the only White House pool reporter interested in asking questions about things other than ice cream, held Psaki to the fire because of Biden’s mislabelling of Rittenhouse as a racist to blame last year. .
“Will the president ever apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse, the acquitted Kenosha gunman for suggesting online and on TV that he was a white supremacist?” Doocy asked.
Do you think Rittenhouse should sue Biden?

“Well, let’s make it clear what we’re talking about here. This is about a campaign video released last year that used President Trump’s own words during a debate when he refused to condemn white extremists and militia groups, and President Trump, As we know from history and as many of you have mentioned, not only did he refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage – he actively encouraged them throughout his presidency. me, ” Psaki speak.

“So, you know, what we’ve seen is the tragic consequence of that where people think it’s possible to take the law on their own, instead of letting law enforcement do the job. himself, and the president believes in condemning hatred and division. and violence. That’s exactly what was done in that video.”
You didn’t misread that. In fact, Psaki has said that Rittenhouse has dealt with the law himself and that Biden’s malicious comments should be forgotten because it’s campaign season.
ONE jury in Wisconsin last Friday certainly disagreed that teenagers are a vigilante. The jurors who actually reviewed the evidence found that the 17-year-old was simply defending himself. Fortunately for those who prefer transparency, Doocy urged Psaki on the matter, noting that Biden had disparaged an American teenager accused of multiple crimes.
“You’re saying it’s just a campaign video – it’s not,” he said. “The president also gave an interview where he said Rittenhouse was part of a militia from Illinois.”
“None of this was proven in testing,” he noted of the teens’ affiliation with any extremist groups. “And Kyle Rittenhouse is saying that the president really has malice in smearing his character. Is that what happened here? ”
Psaki turns to answer Doocy by going astray, noting that Biden has condemned “hate” and “division”.
There is of course no evidence that Rittenhouse has ever been involved with any extremist groups, unless you count the Grayslake Police Department and the Antioch Fire Department – which we know some Democrats would. . Rittenhouse was a cadet with both faculties at the time he shot adult men in self-defense during a riot supported by Democratic Party member.
Police officers and firefighters (and future police officers and firefighters) stop crime and firefighters put out fires – both of which are incompatible with riots.
None of the Rittenhouses were or had shouted white supremacy. None of what Psaki or Biden said about Rittenhouse matched the truth. Perhaps Psaki could offer a simple apology, or at least let go of the fact that Biden spoke too soon and had no reason to portray him as some kind of grand wizard Ku Klux Klan.
Rittenhouse told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an interview that aired on Monday that he believes the Biden campaign’s mention of him is defamatory of the character.
Rittenhouse on Biden called him a white supremacist: “It’s real malice, smearing my character, for him to say something like that.”

I hope the teen sues everyone who has wronged her. The White House has now called him both a racist and a vigilante, and none of that is close to the truth.
