Tucker Carlson weighed in on the Rittenhouse murder trial saying you’d have to be dishonest to tie racism into the shooting.
“Carlson said an honest person could not tie racism to the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting, a common theme throughout the mainstream media, as jury deliberations are now underway,” reported Breitbart News.
