As the Kyle Rittenhouse trial drags on, Fox News host Tucker Carlson is pointing out that it is one of the most bizarre trials to ever grace an American courtroom and be caught on camera.

The prosecution is charging Rittenhouse with murder while the Illinois teenager is claiming self-defense in the deadly incident last year in which he fought for his life during the Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, shooting and killing two attackers while wounding a third.

Carlson pointed out the utter lunacy of the defense during the trial proceedings this week.

“But here’s the amazing thing: Every single witness the prosecution has called so far has wound up making Kyle Rittenhouse’s case for him. That would include even Gaige Grosskreutz. He’s the avowed communist who Rittenhouse shot in the arm,” Carlson explained. “Grosskreutz was supposed to be the prosecution’s star witness in this trial. But once he got on the stand, he admitted that Kyle Rittenhouse only shot him after he pointed a loaded gun in the boy’s face.”

He went on to note that Grosskreutz’s testimony should have ended the trial right then and there. Carlson contends it’s a clear-cut case of self-defense. But that wasn’t the end of the trial as it continues to drag on, getting stranger by the day and much, much worse for the prosecution. As an example of how bad it is, Carlson noted that Grosskreutz admitted that he was illegally carrying a gun. He had also been arrested previously for felony burglary.

And it just keeps getting ever more bizarre according to the Fox News host.

“At one point, a detective, a witness called by the prosecution, implicated the prosecution in a cover-up. The detective admitted that the police did not search Gaige Grosskreutz’s phone after the shooting, even though they had a valid warrant to do that. Well, why didn’t they?” Carlson asked.

“Well, they didn’t because the prosecution ordered the police not to look at the phone, and that had never happened before. And you can see why it’s baffling, really. Why would a government lawyer want less evidence in a case? According to the detective on the stand, the prosecutor cited something called Marsy’s Law,” he continued.

“So you’re not allowed to look at the phone of the guy who got shot and was holding a gun. So why would an honest prosecutor ask a cop to ignore that? Why wouldn’t an honest prosecutor want to see the phone? Apparently, the phone had video from that night, had relevant text messages, location data. So if you want to know what really happened that night, you would look at the phone,” he noted.

“But it turned out the prosecutor didn’t want to know what happened that night. He wanted to declare Kyle Rittenhouse a murderer. He was under enormous political pressure to do that, so that’s exactly what he did. It goes without saying this is not how American justice is supposed to work. But thankfully, like most webs of deception, it collapsed under scrutiny in a big way,” Carlson continued.

Then Carlson addressed the testimony of Richard McGinniss of The Daily Caller who was there that night, just inches away from Rittenhouse when he shot convicted child molester Joseph Rosenbaum.

“Now, why was a convicted child molester at a riot on behalf of BLM? That’s a whole other story. A lot of people like that there that night, it turns out. But the prosecutor hoped to portray the shooting of the child molester Rosenbaum as an act of senseless violence committed by a psychopath, Kyle Rittenhouse,” Carlson told viwers.

He then highlighted the fact that the attacker was intent on killing Rittenhouse.

“Today, the prosecution’s medical expert, a man called Doug Kelly, testified that Joseph Rosenbaum appeared to be grabbing the barrel of Kyle Rittenhouse’s rifle when Rittenhouse fired. Then yet another prosecution witness, this one called Ryan Balch, testified that Joseph Rosenbaum said out loud that he intended to kill Kyle Rittenhouse,” he recounted.

“I’m going to kill you, says the child molester. It went on like this on and on and on. At one point, another prosecution witness testified that Anthony Huber, who was, you won’t be surprised to learn at this point, a convicted domestic abuser, was bashing Kyle Rittenhouse in the head with a skateboard when he was shot,” Carlson stated.

“Turns out, the morning of the shooting Kyle Rittenhouse was videotaped cleaning anarchist graffiti off the walls of a local high school. That seems like good citizenship, actually. Naturally, elected Democrats denounced him as a racist. Ayanna Pressley described Rittenhouse as a ‘white supremacist domestic terrorist,’ echoing the MSNBC ‘Morning Show.’ Ilhan Omar did the same,” he remarked.

Carlson also took strong objection to the president’s reaction in regard to the case, saying, “Joe Biden, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, called the 17-year-old ‘A white supremacist.’ Now, for the record, the men Rittenhouse shot were all white, kind of a funny kind of white supremacy there.”

The conservative host went on to point out that the Rittenhouse case is a “myth” and all that he is guilty of is trying to defend himself.

He contended that “if you wanted a guilty verdict in this trial, you would probably have to threaten the jury. And, as it turns out, some people are planning to do just that.”

A man named Cortez Rice, who was a friend of George Floyd, seems to have gone down that road according to Carlson by stating, “I ain’t even going to name the people that I know that’s up in the Kenosha trial. There is cameras in there. There is definitely cameras up in there. There is definitely people taking pictures of the jury and everything. We know what’s going on. So we need the same results man. We need the same results. Justice for Daunte Wright.”

“So apparently that guy is a friend of George Floyd’s. What are the odds of that? So videotape the jurors. If they’re afraid, they’ll do exactly what we want. That’s what he’s saying. There’s not a small thing. Jury intimidation is a serious felony in this country. But as far as we know, the Department of Justice isn’t doing anything to stop it in this case. They’re all busy looking for Ashley Biden’s diary. They’ve got priorities,” he mockingly stated.

“So it looks like it’s continuing today. At the Rittenhouse trial, a judge told jurors that some were taking their pictures at a bus stop outside the courthouse. That, of course, is a threat. We’ll see if it works,” Carlson concluded.
