WATCH: Tomi Lahren Calls on Conservatives to Stop Celebrating Kyle Rittenhouse

Over the last year and change, Republicans have been making Kyle Rittenhouse out to be a folk hero. And the adoration has only increased since the teen was acquitted on all charges. Rittenhouse received raucous applause last night when he appeared at a Turning Point USA event.

While Fox has lionized Rittenhouse and gave him a prime-time interview with Tucker Carlson, one notable personality has a different take. During a Tuesday appearance on The Five, Tomi Lahren called on Republicans to top treating the teen like a celebrity.

Lahren told the panel, “I think we should step back a little bit and maybe not treat him like he is a rock star or a celebrity. I don’t think that’s necessarily a good look for the conservative movement.”

Kayleigh McEnany weighed in:

“It is my firm belief that a lot of people in this room, a lot of conservatives, watched the Rittenhouse trial and felt a feeling that they personally feel in their lives all too often, which is being demonized, ostracized, vilified because you’re a young conservative. I hear it left and right here from students who just feel if they speak up, they’re going to be totally mischaracterized by their professor, their fellow students, and I think they saw a little bit of that in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.”

Lahren responded, “I think we should take a step back, and maybe not make the man Bon Jovi. But that’s just my take.”
