On Friday, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges. He seemed to have plenty of help from Bruce Schroeder. The Wisconsin judge made a number of decisions that clearly favored Rittenhouse and hurt the prosecution. Saturday Night Live covered the controversy during last night’s opening skit.
Introducing the Judge, Fox host Jeanine Pirro began, “That lovable scamp was put through a nightmare of a trial just for doing the bravest thing any American can do — protecting a used car lot in someone else’s town.”
Schroeder interjected, “It was all standard procedure. That’s why I ordered that the prosecution not use the word ‘victims,’ they were rioters, and hey were not shot, they were ge-doinked. That did not give my client and unfair advantage in any way.”
Pirro cut in, “You said, ‘my client.’ Do you mean the defendant?” Schroeder cut in, “Oooh, yeah, sure. I keep doing that.”
