Fox News host Tucker Carlson weighed in on the latest developments from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial during his show on Wednesday night where he discussed one of the individuals involved in the incident.
“In a move that surprised lawyers everywhere, Rittenhouse took the stand in his own defense. That is unusual in criminal cases, and it’s especially unusual in murder trials, and the reason is simple: The stakes are too high,” Carlson said.
“One wrong answer in a cross examination and you could wind up spending life in prison. But this case was different. By the time he testified today, Kyle Rittenhouse had already won the case,” Carlson claimed.
“At this point, there was no remaining doubt that Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense during the riots last summer in Kenosha; every shot Rittenhouse fired was captured on videotape and from multiple angles,” Carlson opined. “Every single witness who testified this week at the trial confirmed exactly what happened. And here are the facts of it: A convicted child rapist called Joseph Rosenbaum was released from a mental hospital and then went directly to join the mob that was burning downtown Kenosha.”
“Once he got to the riot, Rosenbaum saw Kyle Rittenhouse and immediately threatened to kill him,” Carlson claimed. “Rosenbaum then chased Rittenhouse and tried to pull the gun from his hands. When he did that, Kyle Rittenhouse shot him. So, Joseph Rosenbaum died as he had lived, trying to touch an unwilling minor.”
