Late night show host Stephen Colbert has been known as one of President Trump’s most aggressive critics. The so-called “comedian” has landed himself in hot water before for homophobic attacksagainst the President, as well as a litany of other controversies. In the wake of the Rittenhouse verdict, where the 18 year old was acquitted on all charges, he has become a target of Colbert’s ire as well. On Monday’s Late Night Show, Colbert said that if Rittenhouse didn’t break the law, it should be changed to criminalize similar acts in the future.
“Cards on the table, I am not a legal expert so I can’t tell you whether or not Kyle Rittenhouse broke the law. But I can tell you this, if he didn’t break the law, we should change the law,” Colbert continued to rant. “That seems simple.” Colbert said.
