Trump Defends Man Charged With Killing Protesters As Critics Slam Trump For Fuel Violence | MSNBC 1


During a press briefing Monday, President Trump called the killing of two protesters in Kenosha an “interesting situation,” and implied the alleged gunman, Kyle Rittenhouse, acted in self-defense. Commentators say Trump himself has encouraged acts of violence by portraying peaceful protesters as violent thugs out to destroy all his base holds dear. “Who benefits if lots of white voters believe that Black Lives Matter is threatening and violent? No one more than Donald Trump,” says Joy Reid. Aired on 8/31/2020

    I feel a full pardon is coming if it was black kid he would rush him to death row

    • @redneckhippiefreak for a hippie, who are supposed to spread love and peace, you are one disgusting, truth spinning fascist creep!

    • Redneckhippiefreak, nice try, but NO! This kid wanted trouble, why on earth would he arm himself and throw himself into a BLM PROSTEST? YOU TELL ME!

    • @Ian Paredes 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      @Cascail Boutx I guess never wanting to amount to anything is a common enough trait that it is seen as threatening to others. I wonder how many of those injured and dead were peacefu as they carried theitmr ownvweapons or inyimidated Lawful citizebs? I mean, One is a felon with a gun another with Felony assault charges and one was litteraly asking to be shot. Lots of folks were looking for trouble. Some found it. Claiming intent is hard to do in court. Thats where this will all be decided. .

      @Cascail Boutx LOL.. Im a equal opportunity offender. If you think the world is alk trippy rainbows you have a Rude awakening coming. Life takes grit and perspective comes from. experience. You seem short on both. For the record kid, Calling people Fascists. doesn’t make them one or You any less of one. XD Plus who actually assumes a screen name is a true guide to the person behind it? Oh thats right..ignorance does…

  3. Trump after almost four years still doesnt understand how to be the president of the U.S

    Protests are never based on the NEXT President, they are based on the CURRENT President.

    • The next President won’t be for 4 and a half years.

    • @Gary Ray Cardoso It’s not defense if you cross straight lines looking for trouble, and he got attacked because he shot first.

    • Gary Ray Cardoso | September 3, 2020 at 6:45 AM | Reply

      What do all these 💩bags shot by Cops have in common? They resisted LEO & GOT EXACTLY WHAT WAS COMING TO THEM.
      resist a Cop, you DESERVE to diE. FULL STOP.
      DEAL WITH IT!!
      it’s common Phuqing sense.
      C’mon Man!😏

    • @KodachiC Assuming you mean state lines, he worked in that city, and his employer owned property there thast had already been vandalized. The first person he shot was a man named Rosenbaum, a convicted child molester, who attacked him, chased him, cornered him, attacked him again while yelling death threats at him and leading a mob that was shooting at the kid. He was the first person to get shot. Look it up. It was self defense and it is on video.

    • @Kevin D Absolutely none of that makes sense. What kind of teenager has a minimum wage job 15 miles from home? If he was defending a business, why didn’t he go straight there? And I’m doubting any of his victims were convicted criminals, and even if that was the case, doesn’t change the fact that he was going out there looking for trouble.
      I certainly would like to see where you got these so-called “facts”

  5. I blame the new restaurant that is opening in two months for how overweight I am now.

    “That was an interesting situation…” upon hearing of two people killed

  7. What’s taking so long for this fool to get the virus oh happy day……..


    • I’ve been wondering about that. He’s been in so many situations where we know the virus was spread.

    • He has the antidote.

    • He is being given HCQ and zinc. Zinc ions in the cells prevent viral replication using RNA dependent RNA polymerase. ions don’t however go into cells without being gated in and that is what chloroquine does. It’s a zinc ionophore.
      The government is however corrupt, so they removed the zinc from studies and used toxic and fatal doses of HCQ. The fatal dose is 30mg/kg and they were giving some sick people in the ICU 50-60mg/kg. Government officials are on the payroll of Gilead maker of Remdesivir, a injection drug developed by the government and intended to do the same thing. The drug given to Gilead would be hugely profitable if sold for $10, but they are selling it for $520,000 per 1000 doses, where as the off patent HCQ could have been gotten for $1-$3 per 1000 doses in bulk orders. The DNC is corrupt too, as corruption and bribes is what makes a corporate democrat.

    • @Abram Carroll Where does your information come from?

  8. A 17 year old steals a gun, crosses state lines, and kills people.
    The Republican response: “he acted in self-defense”

      Trump should resign.

    • Dominic Pecoraro | September 7, 2020 at 12:27 PM | Reply

      Trump 2020. Dude acted in self defense if you cant see that you are part of the problem. Period.

    • @Dominic Pecoraro so if someone from another state goes to your neighborhood with an illegally obtained and shoots and kills you because of you look like someone they think might be a criminal, then at least you know he/she won’t shouldn’t be charged with anything. That way your murder will have no consequences, just like how people will ignore you, and no one will remember you

    • Dominic Pecoraro | September 7, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      @Jason Martin thats dumb. He shot the people who were attacking him. I wouldn’t attack someone trying to put out a fire in the first place and run him down to even get shot. You really cant fix stupid.

  9. He’s speaking to one group. His cultists.

  10. Not surprised! The murderer is a MAGA supporter, so it’s okay.

  11. Let me see, this clown left Illinois ,comes to Wisconsin to defend himself?

    • @voodooblue61 blue Since you called me “dummy”, is it okay if I call you something in return? Actually, I don’t think it is. Okay, what evidence are you referring to? I like evidence, as long as it can be verified.

    • voodooblue61 blue | September 8, 2020 at 5:07 PM | Reply

      @Auntie Jen I take it back- it seemed like you were defending that misguided and nutty kid. I see in your later post you were not- so sorry! My apologies.

    • @voodooblue61 blue That’s okay… I could have been clearer.

    • voodooblue61 blue | September 8, 2020 at 6:56 PM | Reply

      @Auntie Jen No problem – and sometimes I get a little mean dealing with people I think are Trumpers! LOL Be well!

    • @voodooblue61 blue I think we are all feeling it. I don’t know how we could not. I just do what I can where I am. Got bless…

  12. Why would he even say that before all the facts , think he is playing to his supporters

    • AGREED.

    • Maybe he looked at the video

    • ​@babysteps r us i saw many videos and as a responsible gun owner HE COMMITED MURDER. he should have never been in a riot with his gun during A CURFEW. that’s not we are taught in class as responsible gun owners. you can’t break the law then claim self defense once things go sideways. the RIOT AND CURFEW destroys his self defense claim. HE KNEW he was going into harm’s way that’s why he bought the gun. police are using NON LETHAL weapons. they are not going to let a civilian go in there and use LETHAL FORCE. be well.

    First of all, the guy shouldn’t have been there with GUN.

      @Sergio Sanchez I’m starting to get tired of repeating information, so I’ll just leave you with this, and then you can look into the matter for yourself later. The AR-15 did not cross state lines. It was provided to him. He wasn’t looking for trouble. If he were, he would have just been shooting people. He was being chased and assaulted and only ever used his weapon when cornered or in danger. He spent most of his time just trying to run away. How is that looking for trouble?

    • Kenpachi Ramasama | September 6, 2020 at 2:10 PM | Reply

      @Sergio Sanchez He didn’t “unjustly” shoot someone. The man who he shot was chasing him around a parking lot, throwing things at him. Kyle only shot him when he was cornered and couldn’t get away. Please, watch the whole thing for yourself.

    • Sergio Sanchez | September 6, 2020 at 2:25 PM | Reply

      Kenpachi Ramasama whatever you say bruh, keep justifying murder and ill keep condemning it

    • @Elle both of you are defending criminals and pedophiles.

    • @Sergio Sanchez kyle did nothing wrong. Cry harder, We know you animals are defending pedophiles and criminals. in your world the guilty are innocent and the innocent are guilty. Commies gonna commie.

  14. “An interesting situation”… What a jerk!

  15. Of course he defended this young man as he was a part of Trump’s base.

    • Colin Connelly | September 6, 2020 at 4:33 AM | Reply

      @ANDREW STOUT Liar. Somebody tried to take his gun away while he was on the ground, to protect themselves from an armed man pointing a gun at them.. When he got up no-one approached him and he shot them .

    • @Constituent A yet you didn’t bother to mention the first one he killed was a pedophile. and the second one he killed was a wife beater. Nor did you bother to mention that they where trying to burn down this small town.

      Typical lying filth trash. keep trying to twist the truth.

    • @EpiDemic117 Guy who picks off Rittenhouse will be killing a murderer. Imagine that!

    • @Constituent A keep defending criminals and pedophiles. Reveals a whole lot about yourself.

  16. The lying man, this HAS TO END.
