The reason for Rittenhouse calling himself to the stand and then throwing a crying fit after his performance was quickly made clear on right-wing social media feeds: to frame Rittenhouse as a victim of the left. Needed some footage for, er, anti-shooting people. Make laws and repeal the culture that curses it as white supremacy.

Rittenhouse faces six charges and could face up to life in prison if convicted, which he should, but almost certainly won’t.

Bad acting coach, crocodile tears – but perfect for the judge to give Rittenhouse a hard slap on the wrist and pronounce justice. Isn’t that America? https://t.co/boxGKQNefb
