President Joe Biden released a statement Friday in the wake of a jury in Kenosha, Wisconsin finding Kyle Rittenhouse in which he stated that the verdict made him ‘angry and concerned.’
As CNBC reports:
President Joe Biden said Friday that he and many other Americans feel “angry and concerned” about the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse for killing two men and wounding a third man— but also said that people have to “abide by” the jury’s verdict.
Biden called for calm in Kenosha, Wisconsin, acknowledging the strong emotions that led to civil unrest and shootings by Rittenhouse there last year, and which authorities are concerned could recur after his acquittal.

“I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy,” the president said in a prepared statement.
“The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor [Tony] Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety.”
Biden insisted that he stood by the verdict reached by the jury in spite of previous comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki which had insinuated that Rittenhouse was a vigilante.
Biden had to wait until someone TOLD him WHAT to think!
For SURE! He does not have the Mental capabilities to make statements like this! Definitely a perk from a third term Kenyan!!!!!!!
True! The ‘statements’ are definitely complements of P-I Joe’s (‘Presidential Impostor Joe’s’) puppet masters … headed by an equally illegitimate Bath House Barry!
You give Bath-House Barry too much credit…the man was an empty suit! All he did was snort coke, go golfing and read the teleprompter. He had the same puppeteers pulling his strings as Creepy, Sleepy Joe…
We should Barry’s name to Back Door Barry. Lol.
You mean that guy who if he had a son….
Yep .. The One .. The same …
Who believes that OBUMER, PEELOUSY & SWEETIE AOC ARE PULLING JOE’S STRINGS……..LETS GO BRANDON!!!!
Thats because he is incapable of thinking, LOL. Frightening isn’t it.
This is about the only thing I have ever agreed on with Joe Biden. Rittenhouse was from another state (Ilinois), he did kill 3 people, and by serving no time at all, he is now emboldened to do it again if he gets the chance. No 17 year old should have been marching down the street with a rifle in such a volitile situation. Sorry, it is the way I Feel.
It is obvious you did not see any of the trial!
You are from another planet!
She is from Ukraine, Ukrainian descendant, like majority of those who participated in Trump last impeachment, including brothers Vidman….
No he is from CNN so he knows nothing, really sad.
Can’t count either.
It’s also obvious that she doesn’t watch much news, as everyone else know he SHOT 3 people, but killed 2 & anyone with half a brain could See that is was all self defense!
She was watching cnn or msnbc or one of the many fake news outlets (if you can call them news outlets) that’s where she was getting her info from
Those guys were in Church, they have never hurt anyone!!!! But went to jail for somewhat a lot of things, and were in the wanted list!
Sorry, crude but saved taxpayers a lot of money and saved a lot of Children’s fears
So true since the one guy he killed raped five boys ages 9-11 and the other guy served time in jail for child abuse.The third guy would have killed Kyle if Kyle had not acted first.That’s at least two maggots who will never defile children again.
Well said Jim. But these people are the “Darlings” of the left…go figure!
nor the video
She had her Biden blinder on She could only see 👀 what he wanted her too
Sorry doesn’t count – SELF DEFENSE. Don’t want to get shot? Leave the guy with the gun alone!
It’s common sense, you don’t chase someone with a rifle
His attacker brought a skateboard to a gunfight.
Can’t excuse idiocy, obviously he planned on using as a weapon. There’s a guy in the hospital with half a skull because somebody used the skateboard as a weapon. I believe the term weapon can be attached to anything that can cause bodily harm, baseball bat, pencil, fork, etc💁
you are wrong. If the idiots were not looting and burning down buildings he would not have had to go and protect a business. You have to put a lot of blame om the violent protestors.
They were aggressors, not looters
Evidently you have never been attacked like he was. He protected himself. You feel like it would be ok if they weren’t stopped. They should have left him alone. I have no sympathy for bullies.They thought they were going to hurt or kill someone like what happened in other riots. They found out they were wrong.
Maybe you should protest more often over false narritives more often.
GO get an education before spewing idiocy.
If you think for one minute that Kyle would do it again, you’ve taken leave of your senses. He was charged with several felonies, put through the ringer in court, probably bankrupted his family and will go through much of his life with a target painted on his back, having to worry about every left wing nut who thinks he got away with murder and needs to pay the price. I wouldn’t sell him any life insurance.
And now sue many for defamation and make MILLIONS and wonders for those who F U C K E D him? NAH.
……..for some, ….it’s only justice when the verdict conforms with their desires, not the evidence and testimony. That type of thinking gives rise to mob rule, and there is no justice in that. Justice is served, …..it doesn’t rely on public opinion …….that would be an injustice.
Only for your mind, you do not have the knowledge to understand, the meaning, get educated by a neutral force, and learn the real thinking
I would give him some medals, though.
Yes. He went to war..and if people do not understand thst this is a war..with an army of illegals crossing into our midst they are not rational.
Yes I worry for his future. He is a target of a bunch of really bad people with presidents blessing to hurt him.
actually he killed TWO and injured ONE. But of course he shouldn’t have been attacked either. Those that were killed were in Kanosha for no good. Sorry but sometimes karma strikes.
He didn’t kill 3 people, and he was defending hjmself, what about all the blm people that murdered people and burned down businesses that never were convicted of their crimes who are ru Ning around free to do it again?
Please get your information straight before you make comments like this. It makes you look silly.
Sorry to say this but what you are saying s you as BRAIN DEAD as BRAIN ROT BIDEN Your count is wrong he killed two who were attacking him and wounded a third who was a FELON in having a gun which he admitted on the witness stand he was pointing at the defendant prior to being shot. Take a good look at the evidence there was nothing to convict him on !
Wrong, he didn’t kill 3 people and they were all white. 2 aggressors died after attacking him and one was wounded after pointing a gun at him and jumping towards him(from video shown at trial and admitted by the wounded aggressor) Kenosha WI is 17 miles from his mother’s house to his father’s house in Kenosha where he spent a lot of time since he was employed there and had Aunts and Uncles living there also. You might say he was a dual citizen from IL as well as WI. He wasn’t marching down the street he was running away from people who were threatening to kill him. Prior to the shootings he was assisting in putting out fires at the local businesses that he patronized while there. All 3 of the people that attacked him had criminal records and Kyle’s record was spotless. He was asked to help a friend of his father’s protect his car lot so that he didn’t lose everything as he had from the prior “peaceful demonstrations” that damaged all of his cars. I’m not blaming you for not knowing the facts of this case because the news media did a terrible job reporting the facts. I hope that this does clear up some of the misconceptions that many people have regarding this case.
What about Rosenbaum, Huber, antifa, blm, and
all others that were out there carrying guns & shooting innocent ppl? Rittenhouse doesn’t have a criminal background but these guys did.
Yet, none of them were convicted for their violent acts. Wouldn’t you say they’re emboldened?
You think he went through a lot of crap for shooting a couple of white guys, just think how much more it would have been if he had killed of couple of the blm black criminals. Old Sharpton would have been there collecting his money and calling for him to be hung.
and now see what happened?digruntled black
‘Do it again if he had the chance’…’marching down the street with a rifle’…where have you been all year? Did you block out the testimony of the witness that admitted he pointed a gun at KR first? So, it appears many were ‘marching down the street’ with weapons…pay attention. How you ‘feel’ is irrelevant.
Would you go to an event like that unarmed?
Are you that dumb,he was attacked,he fought back
your entire statement reeks of misinformation. It was two people killed and he wasn’t marching anywhere. He was standing in front of a place and they tried to ambush him which made him have to run. He only shot after the idiots attacked him (without justification) and he showed great restraint when he did fire.
Hold still while I bash you in the head with a skateboard. Or, maybe I should chase you down the street with a pistol.
Don’t waste your time trying to talk logic and common sense and evidence to libby snow flakes who “imagine” they are 1,000 different gender unicorns like susie .
She is back to USSR, CCCP da, Vladimir 😉
Two fatally shot, one wounded. His father lives in Kenosha. Please into the facts. Stop watching the TV news.
He lives in Illinois with his Mother, but his Dad lives in Kenosha. So he is actually a dual resident, not just Illinois!
Even if someone is trying to bash you in the head?
You are entitled to your “opinion “ regardless of how uninformed or twisted it might be.
Well if the damn city was run by decent leaderdhip, he wouldn’t have to be there in the first place doing the job these incompetent leaders have failed to do! At least he was trying to make peace!
Every citizen in the United States has a right to go anywhere they want. He not only defended himself, he also defended all of the citizens
You may disagree, but at this point in our history it’s only going to hurt you in the end.
And the fact remains….. you are a citizen also
Do you want a lawless country, or a liberal
“Do you want a lawless country, or a liberal crap hole?”
I’m hoping this was a typo, because given the two choices, I don’t want either.
She May want “nutty nancyland ” a lawless liberal crap On the sidewalk hole, She does seem partial to that,
The fact you have to apologize for your opinion tells much about your convictions…… “ what is the popular opinion today “
You obviously come to conclusions without full facts guided by false MSM controlling your emotions. It is called propaganda. If you followed Antioch is on the border and his separated parents live in both states. Also raised in both with friends in both. He was also administering first aid and other assistance for people injured from the rioters mob violence. I have been a subject of mob violence and I would not face a mob without a weapon. Mobs have a violent spirit that takes them over. There is no reasoning or conscience in one.
Obvious that you only listened to the main stream Propaganda and not the real and unreported by the Media facts of the case. Your description of the events, shows your ignorance of the facts.
God, I wish I could block you here!!
#1- It was an accident, done in self-defense.
#2- Those guys were psychos who never should have been let out, and one raped 5 boys, he might have been trying to rape him! What did you want him to do, stand there and get raped?!
His father and other family lived there so he have a right to be there…. This was made clear during the trial. He did have the right to be there. Also he did kill 2 people and injured one. At least get your facts right.
You have the facts ALL WRONG! Be Wiser, Learn the true facts before you spout off please.
You need to check your facts. Only two killed, his father lived in Kenosha. It was self defense. I agree that he shouldn’t have been here, but he had a right to be.
And yet, Thousand came from other States to Burn, Loot, and Murder, and you find that okay?
Most of them were black so the dems have no problem with them doing their rioting, looting, and burning. That’s just “peaceful” protesting to them.
Don’t come here to cry that your wife enjoys all her girlfriends more than you, see your psychiatrist .
Try thinking for yourself instead of listening to lying liberal media. Kenosha is very close to Illinois and it is very reasonable for his to think of Kenosha as part of the area he grew up in and want to protect.
You must be joking. Your ignorant of the facts that came out at trial as well as the Constitution of the United States. I’m sorry for you.
Stay in the kitchen where you are RELEVENT!
I wonder if she lost her relevancy in the kitchen, and hope to regain some of that by posting.
Keep stirring the hatred. You might not like the end results. The jury did its job. If this had been a black man killing a white man unter the identical conditions and the jury found him not guilty you would not hear a word out of MSM and liberal democrats. When the SHTF I only have one request before I die. I want to take at least one liberal politician or member of MSM with me.
where do you think most of the rioters are from? I’m pretty sure some of them were bussed in or crossed state lines themselves to trash the town
Try to wean yourself from CNN & MSNBC. They got it wrong from the very beginning.
What an idiotic statement first of all there 2 scumbags killed and one wounded. Thinking you would just sit there and let a thug bash your head in with a skateboard while THEY chased him down the street, and another point a gun at you is shear stupidity. That’s what’s wrong with the world it doesn’t fit your narrative but the evidence in this case was so overwhelming if you can’t see the truth you need to pull your Biden blinders off and look for yourself….
You don’t even know the death count, twit!
Dudak… humm…from Ukrainian its translated, pipe whistle musician….🤣🤣🤣
CNN must really like you.
Fact, he was forced to take two lives in self defense, not three.
Fact, he did everything he could have done to retreat from the situation before he was cornered and forced to fend for his own life.
Fact, he was there to help business owners protect their property when he was attaced.
Fact, the attack against Rittenhouse was provoked by the protesters.
Fact, one of his attackers admitted on the witness stand that Rittenhouse did not raise his weopon until the attacker approached him a pistol in his hand.
Fact, the two who were killed were convicted criminal, one of whom was a convicted child molester.
Fact, in this country, we have the right to travel anywhere we want without having to justify ourselves to anyone. Him being from another state is irrelevant and really was not an issue in the trial, except when the prosecutor tried – unsuccessfully- to pin some of the blame on Rittenhouse’s mother by accusing her of driving her son to Kenosha for the express purpose of instigating a conflict with the protesters.
Fact, it is legal to use deadly force to defend yourself from someone who wants to harm you.
All of this came out at the trial, if you had bothered to watch.
Don’t be a chicken, you know what your fears show out loud, the ones he shot were in church praying and comforting, those whose stores and businesses were being burnt down, first learn some of the correct law then speak up, I’m glad they did not come to Miami, I have a feeling those Black Lifes Matter would have been, terminate, later I found out they were all criminals and wanted by the Law, I once told a Supervisor, you do not have the integrity and can judge a person. I hope you do not have any young children and grandchildren, because of this President a lot of children are going to DIE from the drugs they are bringing in.
His father lives around Kenosha, his mom in Illinois when your parents live in different states so do you. Anyone ask how far the terrorist came to fire, beat up people, steal, mash windows, I could keep going but point made.
He killed TWO people not three you dunce!!! Anyone can cross a state line you dunce!!! You can drive to another stae RIGHT NOW and you’re not commiting a crime! How many anquifa morons do you think were bused in from “other states”??? He wasnt “marching down the street” he was running for his life away from a bloodthirsty group of drugged up Marxist ZOMBIES you DUNCE!!!
I agree. You are sorry, a sorry individual. You can repent.
Kyle “going to another state” is like “me” going to the grocery store out here in the country. He’s on the state line! You obviously know nothing about this entire case (which was lied about all year by the media) or you wouldn’t say what you did. His Dad and other relatives, live in Kenosha, and he has a job there. He’s a nerdy, sweet, kid – trying to be good – and protect the town, because the police won’t! And BLM, etc, has already destroyed half the town. He was ‘scrubbing graffiti’, trying to keep rioters from destroying cars in a car lot! The guys who died and were injured were total bullies (among them – a convicted child molestor/sex offender/battery/prison/mental institution) intent on beating the crap out of him and also crying out they would kill him. Please – he’s already gone thru hell for over a year. “That” will be a prison in his mind forever. But have the decency to know what you say, before you condemn.
Agree that he should not have been there holding a weapon, but he did not attack anyone…..they attacked him and he had the right to defend himself.
And how many 17yoa white/ black/hispanic males have served on the battlefields, sent there by our politicians during WW2, Korea, RVN and the Middle East and other locations on this planet. So young, so brave, ! God bless those Young , Men for standing for the principles they stood for .
Biden referred to Kyle Rittenhouse as a white supremacist and is now saying there is no place for violence and destruction in our democracy??
He is talking from both sides of his mouth and fanning the flames of hate, violence and destruction. What a hypocrite!
Susan, I highly doubt Kyle will feel emboldened to put himself in that type of situation again after the hell he went through. Just my opinion.
You are totally wrong! It matters not where Kyle came from. See my comments above, maybe you might change your mind ( doubtful,however).
You just showed your ignorance on this tragic event, you don’t even know how many people were killed and if your that clueless you sure as hell don’t know THE FACTS about the three criminals who attacked a young man who was there with good intentions to help prevent the thugs and criminals from destroying a community’s residents property and lively hoods. The 3 criminals made the mistake to attack a baby faced kid thinking he’d be an easy victim. But the young man tried to defuse the situation by retreating to safety but was chased down and attacked in rapid sessions by these 3 criminals . Luckily Kyle was trained well enough to be able to defend himself against 3 men who planned on beating and disarming him which probably would have ended in Kyle’s death. Kyle did not attack anyone, he defended himself. Unfortunately TWO of the criminals were killed and ONE was injured because of their own decision to pray on a young man just trying to protect a community that he had family ties to. Every man, woman and child in this country has the right to defend themselves. If that ends in a death, that’s a tragedy, but the aggressors have/had the opportunity to descalate and walk away. If they don’t, then the choice to risk their lives for whatever distorted cause they think is worth dieing for is to blame.
After a summer of riots, looting, arson, rape and murder with no penalties to the perpetrators (even silent approval from the democrats), the only thing out of line here was that there was a trial before he is released.
“silent approval” — actually not so silent with democraps like waters promoting their burning looting and killing AND your now VP who contributed to a fund to help the rioters. I don’t call that silent– I call that promoting violence against American citizens and that is a crime — both of these democrap scum should have been indicted.
Indeed, Rioters from several other states rushed in to Loot, Burn, and Murder, not be treated as Criminals!
Guess you had better not have a gun or knife to protect yourself if somebody breaks into your car to hijack it because you might be accused of driving around looking for somebody to try so you can act on it.
Susan: Please read what-all happened to Kyle Rittenhouse BEFORE he shot the others who were violently trying to KILL him! Being beat, hit with hard objects, surrounding and outnumbering him clearly signalled their intent. All of that, plus the attempts on the lives of all in the area (including property owned by his very own family) – AND proper law enforcement being told to STAND DOWN was a bomb ready to go off! The LIES the media keep spewing (i.e. that he “took a gun across state lines”) manifestly a LIE, plus other tropes from the one-sided, totally left-leaning media does not help. My feeling is that more information about what truly happened that night came out in the trial, and the jury could not deny Rittenhouse’s defense, of, well, self-defense was the only justified verdict.
No, Susan dudak, you are wrong—learn the facts.
Obviously from your one-sided observation and experience, we can count on Antifa, BLM and all left-wing idiots to again go on a rampage of violence, rioting, burning, stealing, shooting, beating up innocent by-standers because they were not jailed, and emboldened to do it again and they have the chance to do it. Just pray they don’t end up on your street or town. Move to Portand OR, then your feeling will not get in their way!
Lady, you are so way off and uninformed. So, you get your talking points
from the View, or MSNBC? I suggest you change the channel.
Classic numb skull leftist!
You are right on the point on a 27 year old travelling for whatever reason and carrying a fire arm. But..state lines are not the issue. Here you are 5 minutes from 3 state lines. We do not put sentries on ours. But..then I remember ..i had three relatives who were carrying rifles and in battle at 17 in 1943.
So state lines and age..and then motive.
I think his motive was to protect and defend.
Are you stupid? Obviously, you don’t know what the he!! you’re talking about.
Yeah, you’re demonstrably stupid. That’s the way I feel – about you.
You’re an idiot. Sorry, it is the way I feel. The boy acted in self defense, as he was beaten over the head with a skateboard, and approached by a career criminal with a drawn gun. He had every right to defend himself with deadly force under those conditions, and the jury agreed.
FJB. So where was his concerns when BLM was causing riots? where was this concern while our southern border is being invaded?
Ole Brandon is a total ahole communist
That’s the same thing I asked myself, where was
his concern back then? Evil, corrupt, liars, and
deceivers that’s all we get from the EXTREME left
wing liberals. They’re liars, racists, & haters of
good law abiding citizens. They are the DOMESTIC TERRORISTS!!! Always trying to make
good ppl look bad but they are just so full of love,
whatever!! They are pure 😈 evil.
