We don’t believe you. You need more people.
That’s what many people are saying on social media following MAGA vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse’s god-awful attempt to shed tears on the witness stand during his trial on Wednesday (Nov.10). Rittenhouse is currently on trial for shooting three protesters, killing two of them during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
During his time in the witness box, Rittenhouse attempted to gain some sort of sympathy by “crying,” but no tears could visibly be seen flowing out of the entitled white teen’s tear ducts. The lame attempt at showing remorse didn’t work on Twitter users watching the shenanigans take place in the Kenosha courtroom. Still, it more than likely worked on the ridiculously biased judge who became a separate matter of social media discussion.
Rittenhouse’s dramatic performance on the stand was so terrible that even LeBron James, someone who knows a bit about selling dramatics on the basketball court, chimed in. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar wrote in a tweet, “What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

Other’s quickly followed James’ lead, clowning Rittenhouse and comparing his fake tears to the moment when alleged rapist, now Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh, started crying during his confirmation hearing.

It remains to be seen if Rittenhouse’s “tears” had an effect on the people that matter the most, his jury of peers who will determine his fate. But, based on what we are seeing go down in that courtroom, we are not holding our breath when it comes to justice being served.

America, a country of equal opportunity (as long as you’re white and straight), where you can get away with murder and rape by fake-crying alligator tears, and you may even end up on the Supreme Court. pic.twitter.com/hQpQTxG9Ro

Where’s the lie?
As Elaine said in Seinfeld, “fake, fake, fake, fake.”

Kyle Rittenhouse had no tears with his fake crying and that’s because the judge forgot to cut onions as they rehearsed it a day ago.

Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, now 27.
Think about how much their loved ones have cried, real anguish and grief, not crocodile tears. pic.twitter.com/7CFizX88xt

Who among us has not gone armed into a volatile situation, pretending to be an EMT when we are not?
Kyle Rittenhouse did.

If Kyle Rittenhouse was a Black kid sitting on a swing in a park playing with a toy gun, like Tamir Rice, instead of a white kid murdering people with an AR 15, police would’ve shot and killed him. pic.twitter.com/2FTnfbPJE5
