“The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he’s not on trial for being an idiot”
The Kyle Rittenhouse trial is making some people on the left very angry and others just plain bonkers. It has been baffling watching some of the reactions from liberals in media and politics.
It’s been a festival of hot takes.
Over at CNN, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who was suspended from the network earlier this year for lewd behavior on a Zoom call, had a predictably smug take on the proceedings.
The Hill reports:
CNN’s Toobin: ‘Good news’ for Rittenhouse is he’s ‘not on trial for being an idiot’
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen standing trial for multiple felonies following a shooting in Kenosha, Wis., last year, is fortunate it is not crime in America to “be an idiot.”
“What kind of idiot 17-year-old gets a giant gun and goes to a riot? He has no license, he has no training, he thinks he’s going to scrub graffiti off with his AR-15? I mean, the stupidity of this. What could possibly go wrong? Well a lot went wrong,” Toobin said Wednesday during CNN’s coverage of the Rittenhouse murder trial, which is taking place this week. “The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he’s not on trial for being an idiot, he’s on trial for homicide.”

Over at MSNBC, Joy Reid used the case as proof for why we need Critical Race Theory in America.
Ghoulish Joy, Guest Dismiss Rittenhouse Tears, Call Him ‘White Privilege on Steroids’
MSNBC’s The ReidOut host Joy Reid could barely contain her hatred on Wednesday for Illinois teen Kyle Rittenhouse, complaining his Kenosha, Wisconsin murder trial was proof of “why critical race theory exists” and it’s needed in America. She also denounced him as the new George Zimmerman “using…cop speak” and currying favor with a nearly all-white jury by crying when the real “names” to honor are those he shot.
Not to be outdone, MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler griped that he gave “the greatest performance of [his] life” in tandem with a biased judge to create a trial that’s “white privilege on steroids.”
Joy Reid ends her Rittenhouse segment by reading off "the names of the victims" because "[t]hese are the people that people ought to remember — are the people who were hurt here, not the person who was crying on the stand" who's proof that "we need [CRT] in this country." pic.twitter.com/MfTkWJafe4

Another CNN legal analyst claims that Rittenhouse has benefited from sympathetic media:

Hakeem Jeffries, a Democrat who represents New York’s 8th congressional district and claims to be for criminal justice reform, has already decided the outcome of the trial and pronounced sentence:
Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key.

And that’s just a sample. If Rittenhouse is found not guilty, it will inspire a whole new level of crazy.
