There were 2 possible outcomes to the KR drama.
Life in jail or a spot on the @TuckerCarlson show.
Rittenhouse and Carlson sat facing each other in front of the cameras, Rittenhouse clad in a gray jacket, light-blue button-down shirt and pale pink tie. The interview will air Monday night.
“This case has nothing to do with race,” Rittenhouse Carlson. “It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense.”
“Right,” Carlson affirmed.
“I’m not a racist person, I support the BLM movement, I support peacefully demonstrating,” Rittenhouse said, staring earnestly into the camera in the teaser of an interview slated to air Monday night.
Kyle Rittenhouse, 17-year-old on the day of the incident, was accused of shooting at three people, two of them fatally, during a violent riot in Kenosha on August 25th last year. No one of his victims, killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, were people of color.
On Friday, Rittenhouse was cleared of all five charges and unanimously acquitted by the jury, sparkling new protests in the city of Kenosha, this time against his verdict.
