Kyle Rittenhouse sat down with Fox News host Tucker Carlson for an interview that aired on Monday night and discussed President Joe Biden’s branding of him as a “white supremacist” during his 2020 presidential campaign which he referred to as “defamation” and “actual malice.”
Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five counts leveled against him after he shot and killed two attackers and wounded a third in self-defense during the Kenosha riots last year. There has been no apology forthcoming from Biden on his smearing of the young man for apparent political gain.
Biden took the opportunity a month after the riot occurred on Sept. 30, 2020, to denounce then-President Donald Trump for allegedly refusing to disavow white supremacists. He used a video that featured Rittenhouse in his attack against the former president. Rittenhouse can be seen in the ad carrying a gun during the Kenosha riots as he was protecting small businesses from looters.
“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,” Biden tweeted.

“What did you make of the president of the United States calling you a white supremacist?” Carlson asked Rittenhouse.
“Mr. President,” Rittenhouse replied, “if I would say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement.”
“That’s not a small thing to be called that,” Carlson told him.
“No, it’s actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that,” Rittenhouse remarked.
Then the Fox News host brought up the subject of the leftist media and others who had smeared Rittenhouse despite the facts being brought to light.
“The lies that they can get away with spreading, it’s just sickening, and it’s a disgrace to this country,” Rittenhouse asserted.
“I couldn’t agree more,’ Carlson stated. “Did you know how dishonest the media coverage of events could be?”
“I didn’t,” Rittenhouse said. “It’s obvious self-defense. If you look at the case, you look at the facts. No matter what your opinion is or where you stand, this wasn’t a political case. It shouldn’t have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race.”
“And the ways people are twisting this, it’s just sickening,” he continued.
Carlson asked Rittenhouse if he is planning to “hold some of these liars to account.”
“I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now,” Rittenhouse interestingly replied. “So I’m hoping one day there will be some — there will be accountability for their actions that they did.”
Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, previously called out Biden over the ad.
“He went to Kenosha to help people, and what Joe Biden did and showed my son’s picture, his image, and labeled him as a white supremacist, I will take him down,” she declared in a Fox News interview last year.
“How dare [Biden] … do that to my son?” she said at the time. “That’s my son that he did that to. And I’m not going to back down from him, and [Kyle] is not a white supremacist. He’s not a racist. He is my son, and I know him. And he is none of that, what Joe Biden said.”

She still contends that Biden defamed her son and there will be consequences for doing so.

Biden remarked after Rittenhouse was found not guilty, “The jury system works, and we have to abide by it.”
He later shifted his tone, likely to appease his radical base.
“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken,” he declared in the statement issued by the White House. “I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us.”
