(BREAKING WIDE) – Trump’s refusal to Condemn Kyle Rittenhouse triggers Democrat.
The same media who barely reported on the harassment of RNC attendees leaving the White House Thursday night is now apoplectic that Trump didn’t condemn Kyle Rittenhouse when asked about him today in his presser. First, here’s the clip of Trump’s response about Rittenhouse:
President Trump does not condemn the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, saying "that was an interesting situation" and "I guess he was in very big trouble" https://t.co/Nj065CIsxp pic.twitter.com/i8aPSboPOT

The President simply described what we all saw on the tape of the second incident, where Rittenhouse fell in the road while being chased by Antifa/BLM thugs and was violently attacked. Trump said he was in ‘very big trouble’ and ‘probably would have been killed’, but added that they are looking at it and it’s under investigation.

But Democrats and the media are furious over the fact that Trump didn’t do as they wish and condemn Rittenhouse on the spot right then as some cold-blooded murderer:

Yamiche Alcindor writes: “Not only did President Trump refuse to condemn Kyle Rittenhouse shooting three people and killing two, he lent the power of the presidency to explaining why Rittenhouse could have been justified. “They very violently attacked him,” Trump said. “He probably would’ve been killed.”
John Harwood writes: “Biden called Trump too weak to denounce violence committed by his supporters.” “Trump just affirmed Biden’s charge by speaking up for Rittenhouse and Portland caravan”
This list could go on and on. But as pointed out before, Rittenhouse was being pursued by a group of people when he first had to defend himself with his rifle:
He eventually leaves the dealership and is barred by the police from returning. Six minutes later footage shows Mr. Rittenhouse being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away. While Mr. Rittenhouse is being pursued by the group, an unknown gunman fires into the air, though it’s unclear why. The weapon’s muzzle flash appears in footage filmed at the scene.
Mr. Rittenhouse turns toward the sound of gunfire as another pursuer lunges toward him from the same direction. Mr. Rittenhouse then fires four times, and appears to shoot the man in the head.
One man fires a gun in the air and another pursuer ‘lunges toward’ Rittenhouse before he ends up having to open fire and defend himself.
