Kyle Rittenhouse is on trial and now his fate is in the jury’s hands.
This trial turned into one of the biggest press circuses in American history.
And one unlikely person threw Kyle Rittenhouse a curveball that will drive the media crazy.
From the night Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly shot three Black Lives Matter rioters the media smeared Rittenhouse as a racist terrorist and pronounced his guilt.
Once the trial began and the American people learned the facts free from the corporate press’s distortions many in the public were shocked to learn for the first time that the evidence backed up Rittenhouse’s claim of self-defense.
Even a prosecution witness testified that he pointed a loaded firearm at Rittenhouse before Rittenhouse allegedly shot him in the arm.
But the jury’s deliberated for three days leaving many to worry that the corporate media pressure – police arrested an MSNBC freelancer for following the jury bus and attempting to take jurors’ pictures – would manufacture a guilty verdict that many believe is unjust.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is one prominent individual defending Rittenhouse.
Gaetz appeared on Grant Stinchfield’s Newsmax program and offered Rittenhouse a congressional internship if the jury acquitted Rittenhouse.
“Thank you for your advocacy for Kyle Rittenhouse,” Gaetz stated. “He is not guilty. He deserves a not guilty verdict, and I sure hope he gets it because you know what? Kyle Rittenhouse would probably make a pretty good congressional intern. We may reach out to him and see if he’d be interested in helping the country in additional ways.”
Stinchfield responded that if the jury found Rittenhouse not guilty, he might like to hire Rittenhouse to intern at Newsmax.
“So maybe we’ll have to fight for him. I want him here at Newsmax. Maybe he can be a Stinchfield intern too,” Stinchfield joked.
Gaetz responded that a congressional internship is unpaid, but that it would provide an unmatched experience.
“You guys pay way better at Newsmax,” Gaetz responded. “But there’s nothing like the Hill.”
The corporate media hates Matt Gaetz because Gaetz refuses to denounce Donald Trump.
Gaetz also has a flair for the dramatic and knows how to attract social media and press attention.
Corporate media members smeared Rittenhouse even more than any member of Congress.
Joe Biden falsely claiming Rittenhouse was a white supremacist in a tweet during the presidential campaign set the tone for the unfair, inaccurate and dishonest press coverage of the charges surrounding Rittenhouse and his trial.
Many Americans believe the false media narrative smearing Rittenhouse as a white supremacist – the three men Rittenhouse allegedly shot were all white – made it impossible for Rittenhouse to receive a fair trial.
On two occasions the judge presiding over the trial warned that individuals were trying to take pictures of the jurors which raised fears that the jury could not fairly render a verdict with the threat of public exposure and violence hanging over their heads.
Few public figures defended Rittenhouse as the public pressure from every left-leaning institution turned Rittenhouse into such a pariah that anyone that supports Rittenhouse faces instant cancellation.
