Rittenhouse Team Slams Joe Biden for Smearing Teen as 'White Supremacist'
Biden's campaign ran ads making false implications about Kyle Rittenhouse
The team representing Kyle Rittenhouse has slammed Democrat Joe Biden for smearing the teen by falsely implying he's a "white supremacist."
Speaking during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Rittenhouse spokesman David Hancock blasted Biden over an ad he posted while running for president.
The ad used images of Rittenhouse and falsely implies is a “white supremacist.”
Biden shared the ad on social media with a suggestion that he would stand up against Rittenhouse and "white supremacy."
"Don’t forget, the candidate for the U.S. presidency himself, last year, prior to the election, called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist,” Hancock told Ingraham.
"Joe Biden called him a white supremacist; that is appalling."
"I can’t even gauge how wrong that is," Hancock added.
In September last year, then-Democratic presidential candidate Biden released the digital ad on his official Twitter account that included President Donald Trump’s debate remarks about white supremacists.
As the debate transcript plays, images from Charlottesville, Virginia, are shown.
Thirty-seven seconds into the ad, as debate moderator Chris Wallace is discussing white supremacy and mentions Kenosha, Wisconsin, an image of 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse is displayed.
"There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night," Biden’s tweet is captioned.
As highlighted by Fox News, Hancock also blasted the media for creating a false narrative about the case.
“The media has been absolutely irresponsible and purely abhorrent with this entire situation,” he said.
"They’ve been parroting the same false information time after time after time.
"They even do it to this day. No, he did not cross state lines with a weapon.
"That was known last year.
"Apparently, the media doesn’t care to report accurate information.”
“It’s appalling,” Hancock said.
"It’s almost as if they don’t want to know the facts because then they’re gonna have to say the truth.”
