Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother has accused President Joe Biden of defaming his son over a video he tweeted last year suggesting the Illinois teen is a white supremacist.

Kyle is presently on trial after being charged with intentional homicide for killing Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, as well as attempted homicide for wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, during chaotic protests in Kenosha after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night, Wendy Rittenhouse got emotional talking about the moment her son burst out crying on the stand during his testimony at the trial.

“I just broke down with Kyle crying like that,” she said. “It made me feel heartbroken, sad. And I wanted to just go up there and hug him and tell him it would be okay.”

'President Biden don’t know my son whatsoever.'

During the interview, Hannity referenced a video President Joe Biden made after last year’s chaotic presidential debate with former POTUS Donald Trump. In the debate, Trump infamously said, 'Stand back and stand by,' after he was repeatedly challenged by the moderator as well as Biden to condemn white supremacists. Biden’s Twitter account later posted a video with the caption, “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”



 

The tweet featured footage of the white supremacists in Charlottesville. As the audio of Chris Wallace referencing violence in Kenosha played, the clip showed an image of Kyle, 18, wielding a semi-automatic rifle. At the time, it was reported that Rittenhouse was suing Biden for defamation. Hannity asked Kyle's mother Thursday, “When the then-candidate, now President of the United States, and other elected officials, that don’t know anything about your son refer to him as a white supremacist, I have yet to see any evidence whatsoever that he is such a person. When prominent people say that, how did that impact you and how did it impact him?”

“I was in shock. I was angry,” she responded. “President Biden don’t know my son whatsoever. He’s not a white supremacist. He’s not a racist. And he did that for the votes. And I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son, he defamed him.”

'Mom of the Year right here!'



 

One of them said, "Defamed for what? killing people which is a fact?" Another noted, "No crazy mom, your son killed people!! And you should go to jail for being an accomplice!!" A third added, "She should be cast in the next Hobbit film!" The next remarked, "All sympathy goes to the 2 guys family's her son murdered w/ his AR-15." One more said, "She put her son in the position he's in. What kind of mother drops her kid off in the middle of a riot with a gun?"

Another quipped, "Looks like she been smokin them cigs too much." One more said, "Mom of the Year right here!" A commenter tweeted, "She should’ve waited until after the trial to say anything… actually she shouldn’t of ever talked about it." One more noted, "She’s straight out of central casting." Another said, "Shes a good actor too right on cue." A person reacted with, "How can you defame a killer?"
