MSNBC: Rittenhouse a ‘Little Murderous White Supremacist’
Host Tiffany Cross pulls no punches
MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross and her guest Elie Mystal expressed frustration following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse by a Kenosha, WI jury on Friday.
Mystal argued the verdict was a “miscarriage of justice” and a product of the “white justice system.”
But the segment also blasted Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) for implying Rittenhouse could be a congressional intern.
The MSNBC host also described Rittenhouse as a “little murderous white supremacist."
“The fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist, and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws, they represent the legislative branch of this country."

The news comes just days after MSNBC was banned from the courthouse for harassing jurors.
Neon Nettle reported that judge Bruce Schroeder barred the network from the court after a suspected MSNBC reporter was caught harassing members of the jury.
An individual identifying himself as an MSNBC employee was allegedly caught following the jury bus.
Judge Schroeder addressed the court on the "very serious matter," revealing that the situation "is under further investigation."
Last week, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called for an intervention on the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.
Nadler wrote in a tweet:
"This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ."
“Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest.”
Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges by the jury in his "murder" trial.
They were capping off an intense trial surrounding the deadly unrest in that city last summer.
Rittenhouse, 18, would have faced a mandatory life sentence if found guilty and convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.
The judge tossed one charge of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18 on Monday after Rittenhouse's defense team argued that a subsection of the law concerning short-barreled rifles was grounds for dismissal.
