I guess the fifteen minutes of fame hasn’t lasted long enough or maybe the donations to sue media outlets are not pouring in fast enough. In any case, the troll known as Kyle Rittenhouse thinks that this is funny, or at least that it will get attention and attention = cash in his world.
Where it backfires is that here he is, telling all the world in essence, that he faked his high emotion on the witness stand. That works to his disadvantage, because it sets up the narrative, “I got off because I was a good enough actor, not because my cause was just.” That in turn makes it a little hard for him to claim that he was unjustly treated by the reporters that he wants your money to go sue.
But apparently he hasn’t put that together yet. Let’s not tell him, shall we? Let’s let it dawn slowly.

The account doesn’t have a blue check mark, but it is listed as his “Official Twitter Account.” George Conway’s account didn’t have a blue checkmark for the longest time, either.
Or, better yet, Kyle didn’t do this himself, and this is a vicious meme that somebody else put together and then he can take the funds he’s soliciting and sue the person who did it. So there’s a win there.
Here’s what he posted a few days ago — or this account did — and it tells you everything you need to know.

He can’t be tried twice for the same crime no matter what he does. Maybe he’ll go over to Ukraine and help O.J. Simpson fact check, next.
The Trump years have birthed some strange characters but I think this one’s star is going to set fairly soon. Literally, all he has done in his life is to get acquitted for murder in a highly controversial trial. I don’t think that that is going to take him through the rest of his natural life in fame and fortune. There’s no way this is going to hold up for another 60-70 years so either he’s got to ditch this or figure out a way to become relevant again. I suppose he could go out and shoot some more people but I’m afraid to even suggest that, because as dumb and as desperate as this guy is he just might do it.
