Kyle Rittenhouse has recently been spotted in Florida enjoying life as a free man after a Wisconsin jury found him not guilty on all charges stemming from the chaotic BLM riots in Kenosha. The acquitted teen was pictured all smiles during a lunch meeting after taping the explosive interview with Tucker Carlton featured heavily on Fox News.

During last night’s hour-long interview with Sean Hannity, former President Trump spoke about his meeting with the Kenosha kid. Trump announced to the Fox News host that Kyle Rittenhouse and his mother Wendy left Mar-a-Lago “a little while ago.”

“Kyle, I got to know him a little bit. He called. He wanted to know if he could come over and say hello because he was a fan, unlike the other guy,” Trump said. He told Hannity that what happened to Kyle Rittenhouse was “prosecutorial misconduct.”

“He should never have been put through that,” exclaimed Trump.

During Kyle Rittenhouse’s first interview since his acquittal, he told Tucker Carlson that he went to help in Kenosha after staying at his friend’s house watching his community “up in flames.”

When Carlson asked Rittenhouse if he felt the police were absent during the riots, Rittenhouse said that police “have a hard job” but that ultimately it was the “City of Kenosha [that] failed the community.”

“The Governor, Tony Evers failed the community, and there should have been a lot more resources to help with that,” Rittenhouse told Tucker.

Rittenhouse said the police were overwhelmed because there was “a lot of chaos going on.” Kyle Rittenhouse told Tucker that he walked up to the Kenosha police line and yelled to the officers, “Hey, I just had to shoot somebody. I just had to shoot somebody.”

The officers told Rittenhouse to “Go home,” and he complied, turning himself in to the police the following morning. Rittenhouse told Tucker that his intention was never based on race or to try and cancel the BLM movement, but instead, he wanted to stop “opportunists taking advantage of the BLM movement.”

“To be honest, Tucker, this case has nothing to do with race. It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense,” said Kyle Rittenhouse.
