Hannity advises Rittenhouse on response to media, Democrat smears: 'Sue them all'

“Kyle Rittenhouse should sue them all, all of them,” said Hannity. “Starting with Joe Biden.” 

Then-candidate Joe Biden included an image of Rittenhouse in a 2020 campaign video calling out “White supremacists.”

Hannity also pointed to other officials including Boston’s Democratic congresswoman, Ayanna Pressley – as well as Texas gubernatorial candidate Robert F. “Beto” O’Rourke, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, St. Louis Democratic Rep. Cori Bush – along with outlets CBS News and NBC News & MSNBC.

In 2020, Pressley tweeted that Rittenhouse was a “17-year-old white supremacist domestic terrorist” and falsely claimed he “drove across state lines armed with an AR-15.”

Rittenhouse, an Illinois resident, procured the weapon used in the shooting incident while in Wisconsin. Pressley further asked that the media “fix [its] damn headlines.”

The host also pointed to Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from the Twin Cities  – who characterized Rittenhouse as a “domestic terrorist that executed two people”

On “Hannity,” the host went on to point to other more recent examples of left-wing outrage, including from Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.

In a fiery tweet earlier in the evening, the Upper West Side lawmaker called the verdict a “miscarriage of justice” and suggested the DOJ take a closer look at the “precedent” it set.

“Kyle Rittenhouse based on the law and the evidence and video evidence and testimony is innocent,” Hannity said. “He acted in self-defense. This is backed by eyewitness accounts and even the prosecution’s star witness backed this up in court. A jury confirmed what has been obvious for months – obvious to everyone acting in good faith.”
