Kyle Rittenhouse took a shot at both President Joe Biden and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James in a video uploaded on Twitter. Rittenhouse took to Twitter on Friday to publish a meme of himself sobbing while clutching a gas pump during his trial in November.
The image not only poked fun at rising petrol prices, but he also tagged the tweet with the phrase “Lemon Heads,” a dig at James. “No, it’s not Lemon Heads..” he wrote. “It’s the burning hole in my pocket as a result of a Joe Biden administration.”
Rittenhouse was mocking a tweet James sent out last November in which he accused Rittenhouse of faking tears on the stand during his murder trial.
Rittenhouse was accused by James of eating some Lemon Heads “before entering in court,” meaning that he was not emotionally present throughout his testimony.
A tweet from James from a few months ago. During an interview in January, Rittenhouse stated that he is starting a group to hold media and public personalities accountable for defaming him before, during, and after his homicide trial in Kenosha, Wis., last autumn.
Rittenhouse, who was found not guilty of murdering two men at an August 2020 rally that evolved into a brawl, says he intends to sue NBA legend LeBron James for defamation on social media.
He also stated that he intends to sue a number of public leaders and media individuals. After being cleared of manslaughter charges, Rittenhouse retaliated against James in December, claiming that he used to be an admirer of the NBA player.
“I liked LeBron,” Rittenhouse said on The BlazeTV’s “You Are Here” program. “And then I’m like, ‘You know what, LeBron, f— you.'” This week, Rittenhouse intimated that those who slandered him during his trial will face “some responsibility.”
Rittenhouse discussed his trial and future intentions with Daily Wire presenter Candace Owens during a site visit. Rittenhouse began by discussing his past before to the trial, describing himself as a “regular youngster.”
“I was a lifeguard, I was a swim instructor, and I was a firefighter EMT cadet, and a police explorer, so I just wanted to help people before all this. And I still wanna help people,” he remarked.
“It’s been hard” since the night of the attacks,” Rittenhouse said, “definitely been waking up at night with cold sweats.” he added that he, “didn’t realize how big the case actually was until a few months later.”
“I was called a white supremacist, a vigilante, and those just aren’t true,” Rittenhouse remarked, “There’s going to be some accountability, Candace.
According to the New York Post, Rittenhouse announced on Monday the formation of The Media Accountability Project, which would be used to fund legal challenges against media companies and A-listers who dubbed him a “murderer” and disseminated “lies” about him before and after he was convicted.
“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through,” he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, going on to say that he’s also looking “at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes,” noting as well that “Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list.”
“She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that,” he said. “And there’s others, don’t forget about Cenk [Uygur] from ‘The Young Turks.’ He called me a murderer before verdict and continues to call me a murderer.”
Carlson questioned Rittenhouse about alleged incidents of slander after his not guilty judgment in November.
“So, I’m hoping one day there will be some, there’ll be accountability for their actions that they did,” Rittenhouse stated.
“What did you make of the President of the United States calling you a white supremacist?” Carlson questioned.
“Okay, so you’re intent on not, you’re not gonna let that go?” Carlson pressed.
With another instance in the discussion, Carlson queried Rittenhouse about Joe Biden’s 2020 remarks about being a white supremacist.
“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial, and understand the facts before you make a statement,” Rittenhouse answered.
