Right-wing pundit Ann Coulter praises accused Kenosha killer: 'I want him as my president'

With the country reeling from the Kenosha police shooting of Jacob Blake seven times in the back, controversial commentator Ann Coulter stood up in support of a white teenager who fatally shot two protesters.

“I want him as my president,” Coulter tweeted Wednesday in response to a fan account with a biography that refers to the pundit as “jaw-dropping gorgeous.”

Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree intentional homicide for the deaths of two protesters, one 26 and the other 36, during anti-racism, anti-police brutality protests Tuesday night.

Video from Kenosha that night shows a man, believed to be Rittenhouse, running down a street carrying a long gun, then falling and beginning to shoot.
