Kyle Rittenhouse warned the liberal media Monday to watch out for lawsuits after he was met with a standing ovation at the Turning Point USA conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
FOX LA reporter Elex Michaelson tweeted a video of his lavish entrance for the “AmericaFest” panel “Kenosha on camera” with TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk, and conservative commentators Jack Posobiec, Elijah Schaffer, and Drew Hernandez.
“Kyle Rittenhouse gets a rock star reception at the Turning Point USA even in AZ,” Michaelson wrote. “The teen was found not guilty of criminal charges after admitting to shooting & killing two people in WI. He says it was self defense. He’s now seen as a hero by some acitivists on the right.”
The teen told the crowd he turned to his faith in God during the trial in which he was acquitted of all charges.
“God was with me every day through the trial,” Rittenhouse said. “Every day He helped me get through this. I pray to him every single night. I pray for strength and never prayed for the acquittal I just pray for the strength to get through whatever happens to me.”
Rittenhouse hinted to the crowd that there might be some lawsuits coming against corporate media that maligned him before and during the trial, which he confirmed afterward in an interview.
“There’s going to be some media accountability coming soon,” he told Fox News.
