Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother received a standing ovation at a Waukesha County GOP event on Thursday, Michelle Malkin reported.
The mother of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with fatally shooting two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, received a standing ovation on Thursday while attending a Wisconsin GOP event.
Wendy Rittenhouse and her son’s lawyer, John Pierce, attended a Waukesha County Republican event, and they were applauded by the crowd after being brought on stage by conservative commentator Michelle Malkin.

“Standing ovation from Waukesha County GOP women for my special guests, @CaliKidJMP & Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle’s mom,” Malkin wrote on Twitter, adding a photo of her, Rittenhouse’s mother and Pierce. “Huge shoutout sent from all of us in WI to warrior @LLinWood. I was able to talk to Kyle by phone & THANK HIM for his courage! #fightback.”
“I love and admire Michelle Malkin,” responded attorney L. Lin Wood, who organized Rittenhouse’s legal team. “Michelle is fearless. She loves freedom and our Constitution. She drives leftist-militants crazy. We need more political commentators like Michelle. She is a truth-giver.”

Kenosha County GOP Chairwoman Erin Decker said earlier this month that from talking to people around the area she believes around 80 percent of people support Kyle Rittenhouse.
“It looks like it was self-defense, and, talking to people around the area, I would say about 80 percent of the people support what Kyle did,” Decker said.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is running for congress in Georgia’s 14th district and very likely to win, said Wednesday that she believes Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent and acted in self-defense.
