Kyle Rittenhouse spoke with Tucker Carlson, a well known and popular conservative host on Fox News for a special that aired Monday night. Kyle complained about the conditions of the Kenosha County jail calling it a “1 star hotel” and a “super 8.” He then went on the say that he didn’t have running water. He said he was unable to shower from October 31, 2020 until November 20, 2020. There was a desk, tablet, phone, shower, and toilet. Rittenhouse told Carlson that there was no running water and his health declined. He lost weight and was sickly, he told the nations top conservative pundit. He opined that if he was there much longer, he may have needed to go to a hospital.
We reached out to Kenosha Sheriff David Beth (D) to ask if Kyle had running water and through a spokesman, he told the KCE the following:
“Mr. Rittenhouse was housed in our medical isolation unit at the Kenosha County Jail. While housed in this area of the jail, he had his own shower, sink, and toilet. If Mr. Rittenhouse did not shower that was on his own accord.”
“On his own accord?”
A jail cell shouldn’t be a luxurious hotel room, but running water is necessary and humane. Sheriff David Beth (D) isn’t the symbol of integrity. He has been accused of misconduct and saying terrible things in public many times. He has a 20-year career of controversy. We don’t believe him. David Beth (D) has been critical of Rittenhouse and other citizens that felt the need to take up arms when he “got lines crossed” with asking the national guard to come help. How does a Sheriff of two decades not know how to call the national guard or governor’s office? He likely lied to the public about that. He was too proud to ask for help for his deputies that were in harm’s way. He is likely lying to us now about running water in Kyle’s jail cell. He can’t be believed. The sad part? His hand-picked replacement, Ray Rowe (D) has promised to continue just as Beth has. Please vote for anyone besides Ray Rowe.
