“It wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin, it was the right to self-defense on trial,” said the teen.

Fox News host, Tucker Carlson scored the first on-air interview with Kyle Rittenhouse that covered his past, his present, and… his future.

On Monday night, Carlson aired a 40-minute interview with Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen who was found not guilty after shooting three people in self-defense on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Two of the rioters that attacked the teen were shot dead, and a third, who was unlawfully carrying a pistol at the time, was shot in the arm after he admitted on the witness stand that he raised his gun at Rittenhouse first.

Rittenhouse says that he always knew that he had done nothing wrong since he had acted in self-defense which is why he insisted on turning himself into police.

The interview covered what led up to him being there that night, what happened, and what he was thinking at the time. It also addressed the media coverage, the way that his first defense team left him to rot in jail while raising money using his name, that he had no running water in his jail cell, and the way the prosecutors handled the case.

The interview also addressed the smears against him by the fork-tongued, prevaricating Corporate Media — as well as those posted on social media by the current President of the United States.

It also hints at the answer to the question on whether Rittenhouse will file defamation lawsuits against the Coropate Media for the false reporting the smears against him for more than a year.

Here’s a partial transcript of that portion:

CARLSON: What did you make of the President of the United States calling you a white supremacist?

RITTENHOUSE: Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement.

CARLSON: That’s not a small thing to be called that.

RITTENHOUSE: No, it is actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.

CARLSON: What — I mean, why do you think — and it is not simply Biden who said that. It is a lot of people on television have said that a lot. Dozens of people have said that. I’m sorry to tell you, in case you haven’t seen it.

RITTENHOUSE: Yes. It’s actually quite hysterical how nobody can go back and look at the facts of the case. He crossed state lines. False. He’s a white supremacist. False. None of that is true. And the lies that they can just get away with spreading. It’s just sickening. And it’s a disgrace to this country.

CARLSON: I couldn’t agree more. So, you before this, I mean, you’re 17 years old. So you’re probably not, you know, watching cable news all day or, you know, deeply into politics. Maybe you were, but did you know how dishonest media coverage of events could be?

RITTENHOUSE: I didn’t. I’ve never seen something so polarizing in my life. When it’s just — it’s obvious self-defense. If you look at the case, you look at the facts, no matter what your opinion is, or where you stand it. This wasn’t a political case. It shouldn’t have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race. And the ways people are twisting this, it is just sickening.

CARLSON: I think a lot of people watching have reached the same conclusion, and they would like to see you, you know, help make this better by holding some of these liars to account, do you plan to do that?

RITTENHOUSE: I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now. So, I’m hoping one day, there will be some — there will be accountability for their actions that they did.

CARLSON: Okay, so you’re intent on not — you’re not going to let that go.

RITTENHOUSE: Like I said, I have really good lawyers who are handling that.


He also talks about what his future might look like including his college plans.

You can watch the interview here posted in three parts.

Part 1: Tucker’s opening and the first half of the interview.

Part 2: Rittenhouse speaks about his first attorneys Lin Wood and John Pierce, his time in jail, and has a message for President Joe Biden.

Part 3: Rittenhouse talks about his future plans.

Nicholas Fondacaro, the managing editor of the Media Research Center’s website, Newsbusters, tweeted out the entire interview in bite-sized chunks with a brief description.

Man, what that kid went through!

Hopefully, Rittenhouse does file a bunch of lawsuits against smear-merchant, left-wing propaganda outfits that are calling themselves “the media” and wins massive payouts that will leave him rivaling Elon Musk’s net worth.
