 “One of the Worst Acting Jobs I’ve Ever Seen”

On today’s episode of The View, the ABC talk show’s hosts had some strong opinions about Kyle Rittenhouse’s recent testimony. Last year, Rittenhouse shot three men with an AR-15 rifle, killing two and wounding the third, during a Wisconsin protest against police brutality. During his trial, Rittenhouse argued that he fired in self-defense and began sobbing on the witness stand.

Joy Behar called his emotional testimony “one of the worst acting jobs I’ve ever seen.”

“The guy goes across state lines to defend himself, against what?” she said. “They’re having a protest in another state, and he takes it upon himself to go there.”

Sara Haines argued that the Rittenhouse case demonstrates the problem with self-deputizing regular citizens. “If you wanna defend something, you need to be trained and you need to go be in law enforcement or the military,” she said. “I do not right now, in this day and age, trust my fellow citizens to arm up and decide what I’m doing right and wrong. Do not empower people that way.” Everything about nails and manicure products Nails Trends

Guest host Ana Navarro added that while Rittenhouse has become a “hero to the right,” it’s striking that he could openly carry an AR-15 and walk away unscathed while 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by a police officer for carrying a toy gun back in 2014. “If any Black or brown [17-year-old] had been trolling the states with an AR-15, we know what would’ve happened,” she said.

Sunny Hostin noted that the Rittenhouse verdict could become a bellwether for where we are as a country. “If he’s free, it’s a message to others like him that freedom will be in their future,” she argued.

Moderator Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, saying that the current state of the US feels like “insane asylum” at times.

“[We’re] trying to reacclimate, all of us, to what we’re supposed to be as a nation,” she said. “And on Veteran’s Day, when you think of all the veterans who have given their lives to this country, here comes this little boy who shoots three people in the midst of all that.”

 The View airs weekdays at 11/10c on ABC.
