Gun-rights activist and acquitted killer Kyle Rittenhouse got more than he bargained for when he sat down for an interview with British commentator Piers Morgan, who reminded Rittenhouse that while he’s only 20 years old, he’ll always be known as the guy who shot down two human beings in cold blood.
Speaking with Morgan on “Uncensored,” Rittenhouse was asked, “You killed two people and wounded a third. How do you feel about that?”
Rittenhouse: “I don’t think that’s an appropriate question to ask how it feels. It’s not an easy thing to do, it’s something I live with every single day, it’s nightmares I have. It’s something I have to deal with, I have to deal with the PTSD and the trauma from having to do that.”
But Morgan didn’t relent.
“Right. But it seems to me your emotions are more about you, and your trauma because your life was being threatened and that side of it, rather than the question I’m asking, which is simply, on a human level, how do you feel about being so young, and yet having on the record, for the rest of your life now, that you took the lives of two people, regardless of the circumstances?”
Once more, Rittenhouse refused to answer the question he’d been asked.
As usual, Rittenhouse wants us to believe that he’s the victim. But it’s kind of hard to make that claim when you’re still walking around, writing books, and engaging in shameless self-promotion. His victims don’t have that luxury.
