Biden ‘angry and concerned’ over Rittenhouse verdict, urges protests

All eyes were on President Joe Biden shortly after the not guilty verdict was read in the courtroom at the conclusion of the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, as then-candidate Biden last year called the Illinois teenager a white supremacist.

According to Breitbart, upon arriving back at the White House after his scheduled colonoscopy procedure, Biden was immediately questioned by reporters about his feelings on the outcome, to which he replied, surprisingly to many, that he stood by “what the jury has to say,” adding “The jury system works and we have to abide by it.”

While he was briefly praised for his non-inflammatory and shocking response, it didn’t take long for the president — or his handlers — to issue a disgusting statement in which the president revealed how he really felt about the situation, even adding that he encouraged peaceful protests as a result.

“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken,” the president’s statement read.

He added: “I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law,” he said. “Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy.”

Even the White House confirmed that it wanted to see protests as a result of the verdict, which freed Rittenhouse from a number of serious felony charges.

“[W]e are supporting any effort toward peaceful protest, that’s certainly what we will continue to encourage, as anyone looks to have their voice heard regardless of the outcome,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday.

All eyes are now on whether or not Rittenhouse and his attorneys will launch a number of defamation lawsuits — including one against Biden — in the wake of his innocence, as many politicians and media figures falsely painted him as a white supremacist vigilante before the conclusion of the trial.
