Will Kyle Rittenhouse soon be joining Congress?
At least as an intern?
He might if he’s interested in accepting an offer from either Madison Cawthorn or Matt Gaetz.
Here is Cawthorn:

And here is Gaetz:
Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty and deserves a not guilty verdict.
— Rep. Matt Gaetz (@RepMattGaetz) November 18, 2021
From the NY Post:
Congressman Matt Gaetz says he is open to giving Kyle Rittenhouse an internship on Capitol Hill — while Rep. Madison Cawthorn celebrated the teen’s acquittal Friday with a flat-out offer to him.
“Kyle, if you want an internship, reach out to me,” Cawthorne (R-NC) posted on his Instagram account along with a video supportive of Rittenhouse after the teen was found not guilty in the shooting deaths of two men and the wounding of a third in racially charged violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020.
“Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty, my friends,” Cawthorne adds in the footage. “You have a right to defend yourself, so be armed, be dangerous and be moral.”
On Wednesday, Gaetz (R-Fla.) told Newsmax he believed that Rittenhouse should walk free — and suggested he had a job waiting for him if the teen was cleared.
“He is not guilty. He deserves a not-guilty verdict and I sure hope he gets it because you know what, Kyle Rittenhouse would probably make a pretty good congressional intern,” Gaetz said at the time.
Here’s more from Gaetz:
And from MSN:
Florida congressman Matt Gaetz said he thought Kyle Rittenhouse would make a good congressional intern and said he may contact him to make the job offer happen if he’s “interested.”
In an interview on Newsmax on Wednesday, Gaetz spoke up in defense of Rittenhouse, saying he deserved a “not guilty” verdict even as a 12-person jury continues to deliberate the verdict.
“He deserves a not guilty verdict, and I sure hope he gets it because you know what, Kyle Rittenhouse would probably make a pretty good congressional intern,” Gaetz said. “We may reach out to him and see if he’d be interested in helping the country in additional ways.”
Rittenhouse, 18, is on trial for fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year. He pleaded not guilty and his attorneys claim he acted in self-defense. He faces five felony charges, including first-degree intentional homicide.
Gaetz also spoke up in defense of “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley, who was sentenced on Wednesday to 41 months’ jail for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot, calling him a “relatively harmless, nonviolent vegan.”
I’d love to hear what you think!
Should Kyle take the job?
Or should he spend his time suing the MSM for defamation?
