During an interview with Blaze TV’s “You Are Here”, Kyle Rittenhouse opened up about the events that unfolded during his trial along with his life going forward after the trial.
While speaking with Blaze Media’s Sara Gonzales, Rittenhouse blasted NBA star and race baiter LeBron James who made fun of him during his trial for crying uncontrollably.
The moment of weakness for Rittenhouse came during the trial when he was explaining how a mob of unhinged leftists tried murdering him in the streets of Kenosha.
LeBron James saw this as an opportunity to make fun of Rittenhouse, completely disregarding the fact that the young man would be dead if he hadn’t shot the radical leftists.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” James said on Twitter during the trial.

Rittenhouse clapped back and James during the interview.
“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that. I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know what, f**k you, LeBron,” Rittenhouse said while referring to the tweet.
During the same interview, Rittenhouse announced that his experiences in court had changed his plans for his future career.
“I want to be a lawyer,” Rittenhouse said. “Yeah, I wanna go to law school.”
“Did you just decide that during the trial, or is that something you’ve always wanted to do?” asked Blaze Media’s Sara Gonzales.
“Uh, toward the end of the trial, I was like, I wanna go against corrupt piece of s*** prosecutors like Thomas Binger and put them in their place and make sure they never practice law again.”
“I love that,” Gonzales replied. “Wow, good for you.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
During the same appearance, Rittenhouse criticized the prosecutor for pointing a firearm in the courtroom with his finger on the trigger, saying he found it alarming though he tried not to show his emotion during the trial. The teen revealed that at least some of the jury members, too, looked alarmed at that moment.
Speaking to conservative podcast host Charlie Kirk last week, Rittenhouse detailed what was on his mind during the trial as he sat expressionless like a “potted plant,” particularly when it came to the prosecution making false claims about him.
“What I’m thinking when I’m just the blank-faced, potted plant in court, I’m just saying in my head, ‘Is this guy serious?,’ referring to ‘Lunchbox’ and Binger, also known as ‘Little Finger,’” said Rittenhouse.
The name “Lunchbox” is a reference to Assistant District Attorney James Kraus, who was dubbed the nickname by some online commentators, perhaps due to his weight. “Little Finger” and “Little Binger” were common nicknames for Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger.
