Kyle Rittenhouse has put Joe Biden on notice of a looming lawsuit, warning the Democrat president that he will be held to account for smearing the teen as a “white supremacist.”
“Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court,” Rittenhouse told Fox News host Tucker Carlson last night.
“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through.
“So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through,” he added.
Carlson asked Rittenhouse about Biden and others who called him a “murderer” and a “white supremacist.”
“What about the people who called you groundlessly a white supremacist, will you be responding to them?”
“Absolutely,” Rittenhouse declared.
“We’re going to hold everybody who lied about me accountable, such as everybody who lied called me a white supremacist,” Rittenhouse said.
“They’re all going to be held accountable. And we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”
Carlson asked Rittenhouse, “You have a lot of potential targets to sue yourself, will you be suing any of these news organizations and if so, when?”
“Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” Rittenhouse said.
“She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers.
“She went on to still say that.”
He also mentioned The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who called Rittenhouse a “murderer” before the trial and “continues to call me a ‘murderer.’”

Rittenhouse said to Biden after his acquittal:
“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement.
“It’s actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.
“I’m not really sure where the police presence was because they have a hard job – but I didn’t really think they got the support they needed.
“The governor, Tony Evers, failed the community and there should have been a lot more resources to help with that.”
