Megyn Kelly has ripped into the “social justice crew” such as Lebron James and Democrat Congressman Hakeem Jefferies for their public condemnation of Kyle Rittenhouse.
18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse is currently in the midst of his high profile murder trial – he stands accused of killing two people and injuring another at a protest last August in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Mr Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty, claiming he acted in self defence.
On Wednesday Mr Rittenhouse took the stand to testify when he broke down in tears – however, Lebron James didn’t believe him.
“What tears? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” the NBA star tweeted.
Mr Jefferies also condemned the teenager by tweeting he should be “locked up” and to “throw away the key”.
The Megyn Kelly Show podcast host slammed the two – questioning their credentials to be able to comment on the ongoing trial.
“Do you know anything about law, about criminal law?,” she said.
“Anything at all? Have you bothered to look into it, even a little? Have you followed the trial at all before you decided to make a public comment from that post?
“And the natural product of what happens when the false, ideological social justice crew meets actual, fact-based courtroom justice. Where truth and fairness still matter.”
