November 15, 2021
Who is Kyle Rittenhouse’s mom Wendy Rittenhouse?
Wendy Rittenhouse is known as a certified nursing assistant and a single mother to three children who is known for being the mother of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Her children include: Faith, 21, Kyle, 18, and McKenzie, 17. Outside of her occupation, little is known about Kyle’s mother as she has kept a low profile amid the allegations against her son.
Kyle Drove to the Kenosha protests
While many people believe Wendy drove her son to the protests, Kyle reportedly drove himself to Kenosha.
The New Yorker later revealed that upon his return home, Wendy allegedly gave her son two options, either turn himself in or leave town.
Around 1:00am, Wendy and Kyle then drove to the police station where he asked for an attorney.
As news started to spread, Wendy started to get death threats, according to the media outlet.
“Your son is a white supremacist murderer b****. You and your family need to count your f***in days,” one text allegedly read.
Despite reportedly forcing her son to go to the authorities, Wendy believes that her son was using self-defense and told ABC, “he’s not a monster,” during a sit-down interview.
“If he didn’t have that gun, he would have been dead,” Wendy told the media outlet.
“Point-blank. It was all self-defense. I saw it. If I wasn’t his mother, I would have said the same thing – it was self-defense. He was chased by a bunch of mob.”
On November 11, Wendy gave her first interview since her son took the stand, appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity. After Hannity played a clip of Kyle’s teary testimony, Wendy told the host: “I just broke down with Kyle crying like that. It made me feel heartbroken, sad. And I wanted to go up there and just hug him and tell him it would be ok.”
Hannity’s final question led to an emotional response from the mother. He asked: “I know your son was a lifeguard. I know he has stated his reason for going there was to help protect stores and help on the medical front. Have you and your son discussed, whether or not he had to do it over again he would go into a situation like that?”
In response, she defended her son’s character: “With Kyle I know him and he probably would do it again because that’s the type of personhe is. He always wants to help people. Even since he was a little boy.”
What happened to Jacob Blake?
Kenosha police were called on Jacob Blake the day he was shot after they became aware he had an open warrant for felony sexual assault.
He was later shot seven times in the back as a result of an apparent scuffle and confrontation with police.
His shooting sparked outrage and protests across the nation.
Who is Kyle Rittenhouse and what did he do?
Kyle allegedly shot at demonstrators who were marching to protest the Black Lives Matter shooting of Jacob Blake, according to authorities.
He allegedly shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and injured Gaige Grosskreutz.
The teenager is currently standing trial in Wisconsin and is facing six criminal charges including first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree intentional homicide.
He has since pleaded not guilty on all charges and is claiming self-defense.
Kyle was also charged with failure to comply with an emergency order from state or local government, but judge Bruce Schroeder later dismissed the charge during the second week of the trial.
On November 10, Rittenhouse appeared in court and sobbed during his defense testimony, forcing the proceedings to be halted.
