Rittenhouse’s Mother Speaks Out On Son’s Mental Health, Trial: ‘I Thought, He Was Going To Die’

Wendy Rittenhouse on Thursday night opened up about her son Kyle’s homicide trial and detailed how the teen has been doing since the night he fatally shot two rioters and injured a third in what he says was self-defense to protect his own life.

Reacting to video she had to watch during the trial, Wendy told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that she thought her son “was going to die” if he had not acted.

“I see this man trying to kick my son in the face,” she recalled, Fox News reported. “When I look at the video with that guy pointing a gun to my son’s head, I thought, he was going to die.”

Wendy also said her son “has a lot of healing to do” and still experiences “nightmares.”

Notably, when Kyle Rittenhouse took the stand on Wednesday to recall the moments leading to the fatal shooting of Joseph Rosenbaum on August 25, 2020, the teen broke into sobs and a brief break in the courtroom had to be called. – READ MORE
