Biden's contrasting Rittenhouse statements show 'his puppet masters got ahold of him': 沃特斯

在接受预定的结肠镜检查后返回白宫时, Biden responded to a reporter’s question about whether he still believes 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse is a “白人至上主义者” – as intimated in one of his 2020 campaign ads. The president said hestand[s] by what the jury has concluded.

The jury system works and we have to abide by it,” Biden said at the time.

后来, Biden released a written statement saying, “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken.

上 “五个“, Watters suggested Biden should have halted further reaction to the verdict after his initial, moderate verbal statement, and questioned whether the president truly meant what he said in his written comments.

I think he should have stopped at that because that was the correct answerand then his puppet masters get ahold of him and say, ‘乔, your base is going to freak out if we don’t condemn this verdict.'

“所以, they put out this dopey statement where he’s angry all of a sudden.

Watters said Biden didn’t appear angry while coming off Marine One and speaking to reporters.

Then he admits – then he said he hadn’t even followed the trial… Last year he said [里顿豪斯] is a White supremacist. He had never even watched the video of the shooting,” 的 “沃特世界” host continued.

Watters claimed part of Biden’s problem in the Rittenhouse case is that he did not view the available videos of the incident in 2020 when he had the chance. President Donald Trump reportedly did before he offered his own reaction at the time.

The host added that Biden’s statements follow a growing list of other critiques of the verdict, pointing to Harlem, N.Y.-based civil rights activist Al Sharpton commenting that therecontinue to be dark days for black people killed at the hands of people that believe our lives do not matter.

Watters noted the three men shot by Rittenhouse were all White men.

与此同时, Sharpton’s fellow Manhattanite, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler called the verdict 一个 “miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent.

Nadler went on to suggest that precedentjustifies federal review by the DOJ.
