Donald Trump Jr. offered a defense for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse — who has been accused of killing two protesters and wounding a third in Kenosha, Wisconsin — on the TV show “Extra.” Trump Jr. also warned people not to jump to any conclusions even though the shooting was filmed:
We’re waiting for due process. We’re not jumping to a conclusion. If I put myself in Kyle Rittenhouse[‘s shoes], maybe I shouldn’t have been there. He’s a young kid. I don’t want young kids running around the streets with AR-15s. … Maybe I wouldn’t have put myself in that situation — who knows? We all do stupid things at 17.
“Extra” host Rachel Lindsay gently pushed back: “It’s a little beyond stupid.”
