Even with Psaki on his side, Joe Biden cannot hide from his past remarks on Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager currently on trial for murder after killing two men in self defense during a left wing riot.
On the campaign trail Biden used every weapon in his tool shed to attack Former President Donald Trump, including the unoriginal “white supremacists love Trump” trope that has been repeatedly debunked.
His staffers produced and posted a video to Biden’s official Twitter account accusing Trump of “refusing to disavow white supremacists.” The video includes video stills from the incident involving Rittenhouse in Kenosha, the site of far-left extremist rioting and where he holds trial today.
The stills were accompanied by a caption inferring that 17 year-old Rittenhouse was guilty of first degree murder. It’s a sickening, bottom of the barrel level of campaigning frankly unbecoming of Joe Biden, but right on par with the lowest brow messaging coming from Democrats today.

As closing arguments come to a close in Rittenhouse’s murder trial, and it appears that he did in fact act in self defense (the prosecution’s own witnesses confirm this), Biden’s past remarks are coming to bite him.
Not to worry, Jen Psaki is on it!
Or is she?
She was asked by Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy why Biden suggested that Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist.
Race has instinctually been injected into the Rittenhouse case by liberals, which tends to be their only tactic these days.
Meanwhile, the men shot by Rittenhouse were … white.
Psaki immediately deflected and refused to “speak to an ongoing trial” despite her boss’ previous statements about an open murder case.
Doocy: "But the President has spoken to it already and his mom now…came out saying that [he] defamed her son and that claims — she claims that when the President suggested her son is a white supremacist, he was doing that to win votes. Is that what happened?"

The press secretary said that peaceful protests should not be interrupted by rioting and looting across the country. She added that the White House is “awaiting a verdict” on the trial and will not currently speak about it in any further detail.
As a candidate, Joe Biden was desperate for the far-left vote, especially after they spent that summer burning down major American cities following the death of lifetime criminal George Floyd. He took full advantage of Rittenhouse’s “demise,” and exploited the teenager to gain votes, a charge Kyle’s mother reiterated during an interview with Sean Hannity.
Joe Biden and the liberal media should be beyond ashamed with the way they’ve handled the Rittenhouse trial. The idea of “innocent until proven guilty” apparently only applies when you’re black; white Americans are no longer given that freedom.
Referring to Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist,” the left can steer the narrative into a place where whites feel uncomfortable going. Most people aren’t racist, and the left knows that, but they’ve learned the word instills fear due to real life consequences of being labeled as such.
