Fox News host Tucker Carlson scored an exclusive interview with Kyle Rittenhouse — much to the chagrin of CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter — that’s set to air Monday night on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and a sneak peek of that interview was released over the weekend.

In a case the corporate media tried to make about gun rights and vigilantism, but in reality was about the God-given right to self-defense, Rittenhouse was acquitted on Friday of murder and other charges after fatally shooting two rioters and wounding another in Kenosha, Wis., after they attacked him. The 18-year-old defendant all but collapsed in a wave of emotion as the last of five not guilty verdicts were read aloud.

In the short footage, the teen insisted that he is not a racist and said he supports the right to peacefully protest.

“This case had nothing to do with race,” Rittenhouse told the Fox News host. “It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense.”

In what will be an awkward admission to his corporate media antagonists who have accused him with zero evidence of being a white supremacist, Rittenhouse surprisingly voiced support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement,” he said. “I support peaceful demonstrating.”

“I believe there needs to be change,” Rittenhouse would add. “I believe there’s a lot of prosecutorial misconduct, not just in my case but in other cases. It’s just amazing to see how much a prosecutor can take advantage of someone.”

The interview with Carlson reportedly took place in the free state of Florida, and Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary, Christina Pushaw, shared a photo of Rittenhouse online.

“Kyle and his family are visiting the great state of Florida. Welcome to our free state and enjoy your time here!” she tweeted.

Pushaw also addressed security concerns expressed by some:

Carlson had cameras with Rittenhouse all throughout the trial and will air a documentary on “Tucker Carlson Originals,” on Fox Nation, a new on-demand, subscription-only streaming channel.

In a sneak peek of that footage, Rittenhouse is heard saying that he struggles to sleep “every single night” since the fateful encounter with violent rioters in Kenosha.

He contemplates what could have happened had he not defended his life.

“Almost every outcome is either me getting seriously injured or hurt. Or dead,” he said in the clip shared online. “Those are just the dreams I have on a daily basis.”

The clip ends with Rittenhouse sitting in a car immediately after the verdict being asked how he feels.

“The jury reached the correct verdict, self-defense is not illegal. I believe they came to the correct verdict,” he replied. “I’m glad everything went well. It’s been a long journey, but we made it through it. We made it through the hard part.”

Wendy Rittenhouse sat down with Fox News in an interview that aired on Sunday and the teen’s mother said that the case was ultimately about right and wrong.

“It’s not about winning or losing. There was two people who did pass away and families have to grieve. … He does have remorse. You know, and like if people say if he can do it again, I said he would do it again. But talking to him now, he would never walk down there if this happened again. He would never,” she told Fox News.

“He wants to go to school, he wants to play with his dog Milo and be a normal kid, but it’s going to be different for him, because it’s going to be people out there who wants to hurt him. And he needs to heal, and the other people that’s been involved, they need to heal too. And it’s going to be difficult,” his mother said.

The photo of Rittenhouse in Florida prompted plenty of feel-good reactions… here’s a quick sampling of a few of the responses from Twitter:
