Kyle Rittenhouse Trial Judge’s Phone Goes off in Court and Plays Donald Trump’s Campaign Theme Song

Share on Facebook

People are slamming the judge in Kyle Rittenhouse’s case for multiple reasons associated with bias, but one of the main ones is because his ringtone is set to a song used for Donald Trump’s campaign…

And things aren’t looking good for him after the revelation…

Critics are now wondering if he is the wrong person for this job.

Scroll on for all the details…

All in all, more than twenty witnesses were called to the stand over the last week to give their testimony on the events that took place the night of the shooting…

And now, it is Rittenhouse’s turn to recall his events of the night.

Scroll on to find out more…

The Rittenhouse trial began on Tuesday November 2, with opening statements from prosecutors and defense attorneys…

Both were eager to share opposing information on what happened last August.

Rittenhouse, who was seventeen at the time of the Kenosha unrest shooting, was accused of killing 2 men and severly injuring another…

Rittenhouse was armed with a rifle when he took to the streets amid a protest following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police, on August 25th, 2020.

He took the lives of thirty-six-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, and twenty-six-year-old Anthony Huber, who reportedly tackled Rittenhouse to the ground in an attempt to “wrestle his rifle away.”

He also wounded twenty-seven-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz by shooting at him and severing his bicep.

Rittenhouse was taken into custody after turning himself in to the authorities the following day, and is now facing 2 homicide counts and 1 count of attempted homicide.

He also faces charges for reckless endangering and illegal possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under eighteen.

Rittenhouse’s case has gained a large online following from both right and left wing political circles…

With the far-right branding him a “hero,” while others condemn his actions, calling him a “vigilante.”

However, recent photo’s snapped of him in court show he seems pretty relaxed about the whole thing…

Rittenhouse could be seen yawning multiple times throughout his trial in Wisconsin, where if he’s convicted will lead to him spending life behind bars.

The teen let out a few yawns at the start of the trial on Tuesday, when lawyers were giving their opening statements…

And then again when jurors entered the courtroom. He just couldn’t seem to stay awake throughout any of the hearing.

During the teen’s yawning session, the attorney for Rittenhouse, Mark Richards, claimed he was acting in self defense…

Bringing attention to an interview Rittenhouse made with The Daily Caller on the night of the shooting.

“If someone is hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I have my rifle; I’ve gotta protect myself, obviously…”

“But I also have my med kit,” Rittenhouse could be heard saying before he shot and killed 2 people.

According to Richards, the victims “attacked him in the street like an animal…”

[He] protected himself, protected his firearm so it couldn’t be taken and used against him or other people from Mr. Rosenbaum, who made threats to kill.”

As per The Independent, Richards went on to describe him as a “scared kid who protected himself from a mob.”

However, assistant district attorney, Thomas Binger, argued: “Out of these hundreds of people, only 1 person killed anyone that night. Only 1 person shot anyone that night,” talking about Rittenhouse.

He also went on to describe him as a “tourist outside of our community,” who traveled to Kenosha because he was “drawn to the chaos.”

Rittenhouse took to the stand yesterday, Novemeber 10, to give his testimony.

And not long into giving his account of the shooting, he revealed that he knew Rosenbaum was unarmed.

Rittenhouse began his testimony sharing that he had gone to Kenosha to offer medical aid to protestors…

“Did you come into downtown Kenosha looking for trouble?” He was asked as reported by NBC Chicago, to which he responded: “No.”

He also recalled that he had no other problems with anyone that night other than “the man who said he would kill me twice.”

The man in question was Joseph Rosenbaum, who also allegedly threatened to “cut his heart out.”

Not long after going into detail about the shooting, Rittenhouse broke down crying, resulting in the trial being posponed briefly…

But, after a short break, the trial resumed and Rittenhouse continued with his testimony.

As the trial continued, Rittenhouse told prosecutors that he “didn’t intend to kill them.”

“I intended to stop the people who were attacking me,” the teen said, adding that: “I did what I had to do to stop the person who was attacking me. Two of them passed away, but I stopped the threat from attacking me.”

And it seems his apparent plea for sympathy might be rubbing off on the judge…

As he’s allegedly displayed “bias” in favor of the defense multiple times throughout the case.

On Thursday, Judge Bruce Schroeder asked the jury to recognize the defense witness’ military background…

Resulting in applause for the man in recognition of Veterans Day, something critics believe shows his bias.

Not only that, but Schroeder also previously reprimanded prosecutor Thomas Binger for apparently speaking out of line…

As per The Independent, upon asking Rittenhouse why he waited so long to give his testimony, the judge responded: “Why would you think that that made it okay for you without any advance notice to bring this matter before the jury?”

Adding: “I was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant’s post-arrest silence. That’s basic law. It’s been basic law in this country for forty years, fifty years. I have no idea why you would do something like that.”

And we all know that the judge has refused to let prosecutors describe the 2 men killed by Rittenhouse as “victims,” saying it’s a “loaded term.”

But perhaps the worst part of it all…

Schroeder’s phone also rang during a break, revealing that his ringtone is God Bless The USA by Lee Greenwood…

A song that is widely known for being played at Donald Trump rallies.

And of course, that did not sit well with people…

Despite his questionable actions, a new judge won’t be appointed for the case according to journalist Elie Mystal.

The Rittenhouse case is ongoing.
