tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  November 15, 2021 10:00pm-11:00pm PST

10:00 pm
dogs get triple protection in just one simparica trio! this drug class has been associated with neurologic adverse reactions, including seizures. use with caution in dogs with a history of these disorders. protect him with all your heart. simparica trio. tucker carlson up next ♪♪ >> tucker: good evening. welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." people are totally absorbed in the kyle rittenhouse trial. you have to ask why is that? why is it so fascinating? part of the reason's to interesting is because the facts are so different from what we've been told for more than a year, completely different. it's shocking to compare reality against a version of related we've been force -- of reality we've been force fed. days after rittenhouse was first arrested back in august of 2020,
10:01 pm
a pro-censorship organization called politifact published what it called a fact check of the case. in a posting on its website, politifact complained kyle rittenhouse had committed a crime by carrying a firearm in the state of wisconsin. here's the quote, "it is against the law in wisconsin for someone younger than 18 to possess a dangerous weapon. period." now, you notice in that statement complete unwavering certainty. this is common for politifact which issues opinions like they're edicts from gods themselves. they do it because the social media companies are reward. social media companies use politifact's ediths. politifact agrees with what you're -- disagrees with what you're posting, you're spreading misinformation and you must be silent. naturally, other media organizations echoed this position immediately. kyle rittenhouse 17, declared the milwaukee journal sentinel, wasn't old enough to legally
10:02 pm
carry the assault-style rifle he had. end quote. just stating it as fact. and then the entire national media followed suit and told us the same thing. the problem was, it was a lie. in fact, under wisconsin law which apparently no one in any newsroom in america had even bothered to check, 17 year-olds are allowed to carry rifles as long as their barrels meet a minimum length requirement and kyle rittenhouse's barrel met that requirement. no, kyle listenhouse didn't violate wisconsin's gun law. the judge dismissed the firearm's charge. >> it's dismissed. >> that couldn't be clearer. the prosecution is admitting in
10:03 pm
open court that it was legal. he had not committed a gun crime and that means that for more than a year, big tech in its lackluster media have spread misinformation about kyle rittenhouse. that's embarrassing! what are they going to say? they're not going to admit it, of course. they're going to make certain you don't learn about it minutes after the judge in the case dismissed the gun charge, youtube, owned by google, censored the video streams on legal experts that were commenting on the trial in realtime, knowledgeable attorneys, many critical of the obvious weaknesses in the prosecution's case. hundreds of people were watching those streams at the moment they were canceled. but concerned americans might conclude that kyle rittenhouse is innocent, youtube shut them down citing "policy violations." in other words, god forbid people think for themselves. no, that's not allowed anymore. if you want to know what is napping your world, you've got msnbc to tell you. watch. >> here we have a 17-year-old kid underaged said he bought an
10:04 pm
ar-15 because he thought it was cool. he drove across -- they had his mother drive him across state lines. he appointed himself a militia member. he goes around and ends up unloading, what? 60 rounds? >> tucker: amazing. of all the people you can find to comment on a killing it's interesting who they chose. just listen to the words. consider how totally dishonest what you just heard is. virtually every word is a lie. kyle rittenhouse isn't a militia member. as lifeguard. kyle rittenhouse didn't fire 60 rounds. not even close to that. he was in legal possession of his gun. most amazing is the claim which you're hearing everywhere right now that kyle rittenhouse is "bad" because he "drove across state lines." think about that for just a second. so the very same people who have told you for years that borders by definition white supremacy now claim it's some kind of moral offense for an american
10:05 pm
citizen to enter a contiguous state. making it sound like kyle rittenhouse snuck into a foreign land undercover of darkness to murder people! it's not quite what happened. take a look at this map. this is kyle rittenhouse's drive from his mother's home in antioch, illinois to kenosha, wisconsin. it is -- by the map, it says 21. our map program says 17 miles. either way, probably shorter than your commute to work every morning. as kyle rittenhouse explained on the stand last week, when mobs set fire to kenosha, he'd every reason to want to defend the city because his father lives there. >> but you decided you needed to run because the fire on the durmax? >> yes. >> why? what was so urgent? >> it was a fire. >> why did you feel that you should go around off the 59th street property and put out fires? >> to make sure my community didn't get burnt down and help.
10:06 pm
>> when you say "your community," you mean kenosha? >> yes. >> again, you're from antioch. you're not living in kenosha at this time when this all happens. >> my dad lives in kenosha. >> tucker: how dare you put out fires! "my dad lives in kenosha." bet you didn't know that but you hadn't hurt it on cnn nor of any of the people hyperventilating about crossing state lines saying it's ok for the blm rioterses and antifa creeps to come from across the country to burn kenosha down. it wasn't a crime for them to cross state lines. i can go out but if there's one thing that this trial has taught us, it's how completely dishonest and totally misleading so many of the news accounts of what kyle rittenhouse did have been. we've known for more than a year, for example, how rittenhouse first encountered convicted child rapist, joseph rosenbaum, the first man he shot. there are multiple witnesses to
10:07 pm
that. most of it is on video actually. joseph rosenbaum was just released from a mental hospital and for some reason decided to join the riots. at first, he lit a fire. then, he began to swing a chain like a weapon. when he saw kyle rittenhouse, he threatened to kill kyle rittenhouse and he chased rittenhouse in a full sprint, cornered him and tried to snatch his gun from his hands. at that point, rittenhouse fired. who wouldn't fire at that point? after shooting rosenbaum, rittenhouse tried to turn himself into police, but he couldn't, because a mob howling for his death chased him down a city street. one rioter knocked kyle rittenhouse to the ground, another smashed him in the head with a skateboard and a third rioter drew a pistol -- which he wasn't allowed to have -- and pointed it at kyle rittenhouse's face. at no point what kyle rittenhouse the aggressor in this sequence of events. every move he made was intentional. none of the facts were disputed. they all happened. that's a very tough problem for
10:08 pm
the prosecution. with facts like those, what exactly do you say? well, what they said is really interesting. so today, the prosecutor was left trying to argue that convicted child rapist mental patient joseph rosenbaum, whose criminal record you should read online this guy threatened to murder kyle rittenhouse and yet he wasn't a threat to kyle rit owenhouse and to prove t the prosecutor showed this video. watch! >> here is the defendant running in between those parked cars slowing down and you can see just how close or rather how far away mr. rosenbaum was when the defendant shot him. >> tucker: ha-ha. i mean, seriously! you're going to see just how close! i mean, sorry. just how far away he was. yeah, right. everyone whose eyes were opened could see it because you just played the tape, dumbo. apparently the prosecution is hoping the jury had its eyes closed for that part of the proceeding.
10:09 pm
watch the prosecutor, thomas binger -- who is writing these names any way -- explaining if you take steps to defend yourself you have by definition given up your right to self-defense. >> they have to convince you that joseph rosenbaum was going to take that gun and use it on the defendant because they know you can't claim self-defense against an unarmed man like this. you lose the right to self-defense when you're the one who brought the gun. >> tucker: oh. who is writing the rules here? let's just pause for a second. let's go flew what he said. there's -- through what he said. there's no such thing as self-defense against a man who has no gun. really? according to the federal government's own statistics, far more people in this country are beaten to death every year than are killed with an ar-15. so that is a, by definition, ridiculous claim. if an ex-con with a history of violent crime informs you he's
10:10 pm
going to murder you and tries to grab the gun from your hand, you're allowed to respond. in fact, you have to respond because it'll be suicidal not to, obviously. but as a legal matter, all that matters here is whether kyle rittenhouse reasonably believed his life was in danger. and, of course, he believed that. why wouldn't he? you would believe that, too, if you were him. but it's the second part of the prosecution's lie that tells you the most about how these people think. here is the quote. "you lose the right to self-defense when you're the one that brought the gun." really, mr. binger? so no one with a conceal carry permit is allowed to defend himself? what's the point of having a gun if you can't save your own life with it? well, that's exactly what they're telling you. they're telling you don't have that right. you have no right to resist. that's the whole point of this whole proceeding so the next time blm sweeps into your town, your neighborhood, your house to burn and lot and brandish
10:11 pm
weapons, you better not try to protect yourself or your family, try to protect yourself or your family and we'll charge with you murder and while we're at t we'll have the national media call you out. >> in the court of public opinion, they're really arguing that white men, especially white men with a gun, are allowed and have the space to defend and protect a country and social order that keeps them at the top and the country they stole from envisionist folks and built with black people's labor. the media is participating and perpetuating this charade. as far as i can tell, the only reason why any of this is allowed is because of the whiteness of it all. >> tucker: so who emptied the gender studies department and put them all on television all at once? how destructive is this to the country pulling this stuff on television. can they raciallize anything? in this case, they can. there is no racial angle to this story. if you're looking for proof,
10:12 pm
consider the fact everybody involved in this story is the same color. and in fact, in point of fact, the only bigot on the scene appears to have been joseph rosenbaum, the child rapist. for some reason -- and it's on video, don't take our word for it -- rosenbaum kept screaming the n-word. huh? yet it's kyle rittenhouse who joe biden accused of being a white supremacist on the basis of no evidence whatsoever. let's hope at some point he gets sued for that now, they're calling the judge the same thing, too. watch. >> let's hope for 1:00. i don't know, the -- hope the. [indiscernible] isn't coming. it's not one of those from long beach harbor. >> yes, that was the judge making off-color judge about asian food during a murder trial. i want to ask you how unusual is the judge's conduct currently? >> well, i think some of the things are way out of line. the comment about the asian food, for example. >> tucker: oh. yeah, that's racist.
10:13 pm
but really it's only racist if you're exercising your right to self-defense or if you're trying to conduct a fair trial f you don't inject equity into the trial and judge people on the basis of their skin color -- they actually did. if you dare to do that in this post equity country, post blm nation, you're by definition a racist. they won't admit to the public they lied to all of us for more than a year. this is all by. [indiscernible] you're a racist. msnbc is by far the worst defender. it's shocking actually when you look at it carefully but it's not the only offender. they're all doing this the so-called race and equity team. can you imagine what those people are like? judge in kyle rittenhouse trial makes inappropriate asian food joke. inappropriate is the favored word of people who want to slur someone or attack someone's reputation. inappropriate, what's that mean? entirely subjective. according to the piece, as gets more specific, the judge's joke
10:14 pm
about supply chains and food puts asians "in the cross hairs of micro aggression as well as actual physical violence." [laughter] so when you make a joke about chinese takeout, which by the way, if you're a bigot, you probably wouldn't be eating in the first place, but if you make that joke, you're dangerous. if you're the judge and you haven't already unilaterally give rittenhouse the death penalty for offending msnbc, you're a threat to people. these people are really dangerous. that kind of talk degrades the social fabric faster than anything. if you're looking for true crazy, no one beats the race lady on msnbc. >> earlier today, the teenager accused of murdering two men and wounding a third in kenosha, wisconsin, last year took to the stand in his own defense. the circumstances are almost built for an actual crc course. the white now 18-year-old faces
10:15 pm
an almost entirely white jury of his peers with the exception of one black man. journey with me, paul, could any child of color, young american of color, ever, ever, ever, ever do that on a stand and get away with it? >> you already know, joy. of course not! this is white privilege on steroids. >> tucker: again, there's no racial angle here. everybody is the same color, so if a white guy shooting another white guy is an example of racism, maybe should you tell us how. this is insane! just so you know. candidacy owens dash candace owens is the host of candice. thank you for coming on. there's a lot of ways to interpret this case from a progressive perspective. i never would imagine they would tell us this is an example of racism because i don't think a normal person would think that for one second because there's no racial component here. what am i missing? >> you're not missing anything.
10:16 pm
and really this has been stunning. this has really been a course in media brain wash. it's something i think we'll look back upon history and go we're actually watching the facts of real-life propaganda. a study in what happens if they say something enough times, people will say it's true. after watching the live trial like everybody else in real life and he was unbelievably innocent in my assessment, it would be staggering. people are writing back to me calling me a race traitor a traitor to my race say how dare you defend him because he's whites? i'm being serious. we're not trying to be malicious them legitimately thought kyle rittenhouse shot and killed two black people because the media refused to acknowledge who were the alleged victims that they were claiming he shot. they didn't talk about who joseph rosenbaum was. they didn't talk about the fact that he was a convicted pedophile. oopsys, they forgot to mention the fact both of these men were white! this case -- and i want to be very clear here for everybody watching -- has nothing to do with black america!
10:17 pm
this has nothing to do with race or black america. really, guys, we can sit this one out for once but the media was infested. what's rally interesting, tucker, if you go back and look at the timeline. this happened in august 2020 just ahead of the election. people in the media were saying literally that kyle was radicalized by trump and there it is, the freudian slip. this is what it's really about the media was obsessed with the race narrative during the black lives matter, why? they took everything including an innocent white teenager that had an incident that occurred with two white convicted felons. they were willing to defend the two pedophiles because of the parasitic beast they want to off if ther to all americans. >> tucker: if you have a kid that shoots a convicted pedophile who is screaming the n-word and the kid is a white supremacist, i wonder at a certain point does this lose all
10:18 pm
power? this attack? it's so stupid t doesn't work -- it doesn't work anymore? >> welcome to clown world, tucker. this has to do with racism and white supremacy? this factually speaking has absolutely nothing to do with white supremacy or racism. it's sad. people in the media are willing to defend a convicted pedophile, actual mad man, right? does anyone thinking rosenbaum was out to defend black people screaming the n-word? no! they know the entire mainstream media will defend them no matter what they do, including chasing and attacking a 17-year-old. they say, hey, all i have to do is throw on the blm t-shirt, no matter who i am or how despicable i am -- the second guy had the record of false imprisonment of a woman -- doesn't matter. why? it's blm night. put on a t-shirt and commit
10:19 pm
crimes. no one will say anything to you. >> tucker: you understood at the time when they tried to pull you off tv. i remembered that so well. candace owens, thank you very much. >> thanks so much for having me. >> tucker: today, the prosecutor in the rittenhouse case, guy called thomas binger, referred to the mob that was torching downtown kenosha last year as a crowd full of heroes. so rosas was in the crowd that night. he's a senior writer at town hall. he watched the city burn. the city hasn't been rebe built. no one -- rebuilt. no one cares. he joins us tonight to react to this. you were there. you watched when they wrecked this little town that did nothing wrong, didn't deserve it -- it'll never be rebuilt. it's destroyed forever and now you hear the prosecutor refer to these people as heroes. what's your response to that? >> tucker, i'm not going to lie to you. i got pretty heated. i was out there that night. to call this mob of rioters heroes is just an absolutely. i mean, think about it.
10:20 pm
binger called this mob heroes when they were attacking the place where he works at. this shows how ridiculous this trial has gotten and i think it just highlights the fact that they never had a strong case to begin with but they have to throw everything they can to try to save what case they have, because, you know, throughout this entire trial, their own witnesses, their own supposed video evidence only served to bolster rittenhouse's claim to self-defense. and you know, as someone who was there that night, it's very, very aggravating to see someone lie to the jury in hopes to try to save what his case and potentially his career. >> tucker: here you have a prosecutor, a government lawyer, glorifying violence in the middle of the trial which is supposedly about punishing violence. you were there, but it seems to me like that was an extended spasm of violence to me, those riots. >> no, they absolutely were.
10:21 pm
and i just want to highlight the fact that none of this would have happened in terms of the case if the local and state authorities had actually done their jobs. i mean, after the first night of riots, only 125 national guardsmen were called out which was not nearly enough and so in the absence of law and order and in the absence of people who are actually trained to handle these situations, bad things are going to happen and so, you know, hopefully when the verdict comes down, nothing more bad happens to this town, because they've been through enough but we'll see what happens. >> thank you for saying that. and kenosha, wisconsin, doesn't deserve what it's getting. that's for sure. it's a nice place. julio rosas, thank you very much. >> thanks. >> tucker: so somehow kamala runs as vice president with the united states with an ailing president. what do you exactly know about kamala harris? this person? what do you know about her? we've got some amazing footage for you next. it fills in some of the blanks
10:22 pm
in her past. [laughter] you have to stay for this! by the way, you can come see us in person down in florida on wednesday. the show will be in the patriot awards along with a ton of other people at fox, laura, sean, judge janine. go to foxnation.com/patriot arwards for tickets. hope to see you there. i am totally blind. and non-24 can throw my days and nights out of sync, keeping me from the things i love to do. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424.
10:23 pm
10:24 pm
10:25 pm
10:26 pm
it's another day. and anything could happen. it could be the day you welcome 1,200 guests and all their devices. or it could be the day there's a cyberthreat. only comcast business' secure network solutions give you the power of sd-wan and advanced security integrated on our activecore platform so you can control your network from anywhere, anytime. it's network management redefined. every day in business is a big day. we'll keep you ready for what's next. comcast business powering possibilities.
10:27 pm
>> tucker: the one thing we know for sure about kamala harris is we should all be very, very grateful to have her because she's historic for reasons no one ever explains but there's a lot we don't know about kamala harris. most people really don't know she really grew up in canada where she went to high school. she's not from this country in that sense. she's certainly also from canada. ok. that doesn't mean she's not going to be a good vice president. why haven't we heard that? by the way, how did someone who clearly is not liked by the people around her and clearly isn't very good at her job get so high up? we know her first meaningful job in politics was given to her by her boyfriend at the time who is married, willie brown, most powerful democrat in california. we know willie brown isn't the only powerful person she dated. this is interesting. we're not exactly sure what to make of it.
10:28 pm
it turns out kamala also dated the tv show host montel williams we know that because of this video. watch. >> long before she met doug imhof, she dated prominent men including in 2001 former talk show host montel williams. back then, he was the famous one and had to introduce her to the paparazzi. >> tucker: montel williams called her kamala. she calls herself kamala sometimes. that's kind of all we know. what was that relationship like? what did montel williams think of it? we would love to talk to montel williams about his torrid relationship with kamala or kamala -- pronounced it differently -- that's one of the blanks we'd like to fill in. he's always welcomed on this show. in the meantime, we know kamala harris is having problems as vice president. cnn just published this report. by the way, cnn spent a long
10:29 pm
time telling us how great she is. now they're telling us, exasperation and dysfunction inside kamala harris' frustrating start as vice president. in other words, it's kind of a disaster. i wish they told us about that earlier. speaking of disaster, beto o'rourke, remember him? he once ran for senate in texas and lost. he was the guy who told us he was going to take our guns away. not surprisingly, he wasn't elected. then he ran for president. he told "vanity fair" he was born to do it but once again, he lost. why don't you go get a job and do something useful with your life? that never occurred to beta o'rourke who is the living embodiment of privilege if you're looking for someone to embody it. now he's running for the governor of texas in a new campaign ad, mr. o'rourke announced his platform. no weed. >> they're not focused on things we really want them to do like making sure we have a functioning electricity grid or
10:30 pm
creating the best jobs in america right here in texas or we have world-class schools or make progress on the things that most of us actually agree on like expanding medicaid or legalizing marijuana. instead, they're focusing on the kind of extremist policies around abortion or permitless carry or even in our schools that really only divide us and keep us apart. >> tucker: yeah, uh-huh. a little correction, by the way. a minute ago, we suggested kamala harris was the least impressive person in american politics. obviously we meant to say beto o'rourke. chadwick moore is the editor and chief of "outspoken." we're happy to have him here tonight. are you glad or sad it turns out we haven't seen the end of beto? >> i mean, no means no, beto. what is it with these democrat men that they don't just understand no means no? in his defense, though, i have heard that the state of texas requires someone applying for
10:31 pm
unemployment include they're actively seeking work. that might be what is behind this. you heard of the gig economy. well, this is the candidate economy. much like bill de blasio, running -- he doesn't really seek to run things. he just wants to run for things. this is how he, you know, makes a living. this is his livelihood is running for things or sometimes these people, they don't even have to run for things. they just threaten to run for things like stacy abrams and they do just well. it's a humble way to make a living but u know, they're working very -- but u know, they're working very hard tat. >> what will it take? look, i'm -- they're working very hard at it. >> look, i'm sure beto o'rourke is good at hacky-sack and other things. how many losses will it take for him to stop? >> i heard he's a furry. he seemed to really enjoy losing.
10:32 pm
maybe it's a fetish of his or something. i think this is just his gig now. we'll probably be seeing him for a long time running for things and not actually winning. >> tucker: yeah, never overlook masochism. chadwick moore, good to see you. >> thank you. >> tucker: we'll be right back. much going on in the news. we'll tell what you in just a second.
10:33 pm
10:34 pm
10:35 pm
10:36 pm
10:37 pm
>> tucker: so the promise, the essential promise of america is equal treatment under the law. we're all citizens. we're judged equally for what we do. most important thing we have and it's going away. if you need more evidence, consider this. one of the biggest investment firms in the country just announced it'll impose strict racial discrimination in its hiring. state street global advisers has informed its managers they'll need expressed permission before hiring white men, not because white male applicants are qualified to do the job. no. it's because they're white and
10:38 pm
male. at state street global advisers, your color could disqualify you from employment. the company said that explicitly. it's worth remembering in addition to being immoral, obviously this is illegal under federal law. if you have any questions about that, check the mandatory labor law poster that hangs by law in every break room in every office in america and it'll tell you it's illegal to discriminate people on the basis of their race and hiring. period. federal law couldn't be clearer about that. and yet here is the amazing thing. the so-called civil rights division of joe biden's justice department hasn't said a word about this and aren't going to. they're trying to make sure that people aren't trying to put aunt jemima back on pancake syrup and put boys on girls teams in school. you have to wonder if white men are so bad you need new rules to keep them out of the workplace, why is the parent company of state street run by one of them? that man's name is ronald p. o'hanley. as you can see from the picture on your screen, he's both pale
10:39 pm
and male. we took a look at ron p. o'hanley's bio this afternoon. it's inaccurate. it doesn't describe him as a racist buffoon it tells you that he's deeply involved in industry efforts around climate, corporate governance and diversity and inclusion, of course he is, and he also led, "several initiatives on gender equality." needless to say. he couldn't be more perfect. we also learned he's an avid offshore sailboat racing. he's on he's got his own captain -- he's got his own captain to sail it this is mr. diversity and inclusion. this is the guy telling your son who has done nothing wrong and just wants to work that he didn't do his job because he's born the wrong color, the same color ron p. olanly is -- o'hanley is. if you're going to start building apartheid in this country, you go first.
10:40 pm
quit your stupid job and give it to a woman of color. transfer your entire personal portfolio, including your multiple homes to the black lives matter foundation. give your little sailboat to a deserving family of haitian immigrants and start over from scratch at zero under the rules you're now imposing on this generation of young people. and we'll see how you do, ron p. o'hanley. that'll be equity. so one of the people you hear the most bad things about is called robert f. kennedy jr. bobby kennedy jr. you hear he's crazy. he's an anti-vaxer and hates all vaccines! well, it turns out the reality as so often the case is the opposite. bobby kennedy is one of the smartest people in the country, not against vaccines and definitely one of the bravest people speaking in our country. that's why they're trying to make him be quiet. he's one of the last great defenders of our constitution.
10:41 pm
our conversation with him in a moment. patriot purge, just go to tuckercarlson capsoff.com
10:42 pm
10:43 pm
10:44 pm
10:45 pm
10:46 pm
>> tucker: if you want to know what is going on in this country, one way to understand it is figuring out who they're trying to censor. bobby kennedy jr. has been censored. why are they going to censor him? he's a cook. he's crazy? he's one of the smartest and most articulate chroniclers in the erosion of our country. he's written an amazing new book and we're grateful to talk to him at length in a brand-new episode of tucker today. here is part of it. >> that's why we had the revolution so we can criticize the government. and we put that first. and yet it's gone. then they go after the second half of the first amendment, freedom of religion. they church -- they close
10:47 pm
churches for the first half of the year and keep the liquor stores open. without discussion or debate, they keep the liquor stores opened as essential businesses. i've got no problem with that. the liquor stores aren't in the constitution. the churches are. we shouldn't be close -- without having a debate about it. we go after property rights. they close a million businesses without due process or just compensation. that's a violation of the constitution. it was just a doctor who's never treated a covid patient saying one week masks don't work and a month later everybody putting them on and not citing one study to justify that change. it was government overreach. during that first year, we
10:48 pm
literally got rid of every amendment of the constitution except the second amendment, the only one that's left. you know, what i tell people is, you know, we have to -- we have to love our freedom more than we fear a germ. we have to. and even -- and i would even remind people that even if this was the deadly disease they say it is, there's worse things than death. there was a whole generation -- people get mad at me for saying it -- but we're lucky there was a whole generation of americans in 1776 who said it would be better to die than to not have these rights written down. and they gave us that. they gave us a gift of that bill of rights. and in one year at the bidding
10:49 pm
of a doctor, because he's telling us, you know, you need to do this, and orchestrated fear and, you know, all the weird stuff they did with the numbers which is not what public health is supposed to be doing, in one year, all of those rights have been taken away from us. >> tucker: one of the most moving, interesting and enlightening conversations we've ever had. it went on for over an hour. it was very much worth listening to. his new book is about anthony fauci. it's amazing! can't recommend it highly enough. any way, it's all on foxnation.com. we recommend it. well, there's still a lot to assess from the kyle rittenhouse trials going to the jury apparently. the judge was told to dismiss the weapon charge brought against rittenhouse today. professor johnson shirley has been watching that trial carefully and joins with us reaction. head over by the way to tuckercarlson.com during the break to get merchandise over there. it's pretty great and highly fashionable.

bobid >> tucker: so the prosecutions but most of the rittenhouse trial undermining its own case and its closing argument today was no different than i. how badly did it go? take a look at this picture. at one point the prosecutor pointed in a ar-15 directly at jurors with his finger on the trigger, which, news flash, you're not supposed to do. keep your finger off then
10:56 pm
trigger, son. by contrast, the closing argument from the defense, while not perfect, went a little more smoothly. the defense attorney chose his words very carefully, he explained that kyle rittenhouse has the right not to be "molested" by joseph rosenbaum. >> he has as much right to go there is anybody else in the city of kenosha, and be molested by the likes of joseph rosenbaum, kelly and joshua simmons give. >> tucker: professor at george washington university law school, he joins us today having watched the trial. thanks so much for coming on. i got a million questions, don't have time for many. here's the first. we learned today that actually it's the legal in the state of wisconsin for a 17 year old to have a long gun as rittenhouse did. why did we not find that out until the last day of the trial? discharge stood until today. >> that's an excellent question. i wrote a column that actually
10:57 pm
questioned why this count was allowed into the trial. i'm baffled how the prosecutors got an indictment on this count. from my view, this has no applicable elites of the case. this was not a short-barreled weapon, you can determine that with a simple measurement, and any other alternative conditions are not met by him, and so i'm not sure what the prosecutors said that got the indictment, with the court eventually did throw that out. but part of the problem here is that an opening statement is like an oral contract with a jury. they take it very seriously. when you say are going to show something, they expect you to show it. you say that, you know, rittenhouse chased down rosenbaum and shot him in then back, they expect to see it. and in fact they didn't. they saw one count dropped and a number of statements made in the opening statement were gone by the closing argument. >> tucker: so there was this super weird moment, i honestly
10:58 pm
don't know what to make of it, for the prosecutor today in his closing remarks said look, joseph rosenbaum didn't really do anything but he set some fires, yeah, he moved obstructions into the road, yeah, he screamed to the n-word. why would the prosecutor reminde the jury the guy was sittingas fires and screaming racial slurs? i don't get it. >> yeah, the prosecution could not be working harder for acquittal. i mean, you have a jury from kenosha and you're mocking the notion that oh, they set a few fires,s, you know, they rioted a little. during questioning, he made fun of the fact that they were throwing bricks at police cruisers and saying it didn't really hurt those cruisers, did they, and you can only imagine what it's like to be a kenosha jurors sitting there and saying who's council are you? who are you representing here? >> tucker: kenosha is already a forgotten town that will never be rebuilt. if you lived there this is not a
10:59 pm
small thing. have to ask you, hate to put you on the spot, what you think is going to happen with this jury? >> well, i think the prosecution has reduced the range of possibilities very likely between a hung jury and outright acquittal. you know, the problem is you make yourself an issue. that's what he has done. he has contradicted his statement so often, presented evidence that was not borne out, he's really begging for reaction from this jury, but i would be very surprised if they could eke out a single conviction on this rather appalling record. >> tucker: yeah. as a nonlawyer, that's certainly the way it seems to me so it's nice to have that instinct confirmed. thank you so much, appreciate it. >> thank you. >> tucker: we are out of time but our full interview with robert f. kennedy, jr., which we cannot say enough good things about, it's up now on fox nation, absolutely worth watching, you can watch every along with all of our shows, 90
