Wendy Rittenhouse, mother of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse — who is on trial for fatally shooting two men during Kenosha, Wisconsin, riots — says that President Joe Biden "defamed" her son by suggesting that the teen was a white supremacist.
The Kenosha riots erupted following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
During Wednesday's proceedings, a tearful Kyle insisted that he acted in self-defense after feeling cornered by one of the victims.
What are the details?
Wendy appeared on Fox News' "Hannity" on Thursday night, where she called out Biden for wrongly intimating that Kyle was a white supremacist.
In 2020, then-presidential candidate Biden tweeted images of Kyle and slapped then-President Donald Trump for ignoring what the Democrat said was "white supremacy." In the tweet's caption, Biden suggested that white supremacists were partially responsible for the violence that unfolded during the protests.
"There's no other way to put it: The President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacist on the debate stage last night," Biden wrote at the time.
