During an interview with Blaze TV’s “You Are Here”, Kyle Rittenhouse opened up about his life going forward after he was acquitted of all charges relating to the Kenosha shootings.
At one point during the 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.
