(TheRedWire.com) – In 2020, prosecutors charged Kyle Rittenhouse with five criminal counts related to his actions during a violent riot led by Antifa members and Black Lives Matter activists in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse killed two men and shot Gaige Grosskreutz during the incident. During the trial, Grosskreutz admitted he was pointing a gun at Rittenhouse when the young man shot him. A recent encounter between President Joe Biden and Grosskreatz stirred up a hornet’s nest for the president.
On Friday, April 22, Twitter user Michael Gallas posted a photograph showing Biden shaking hands with Grosskreutz while attending a political rally in Portland, Oregon, on Thursday.

Media outlets like The Gateway Pundit quickly responded to the incident, asking why the President of the United States would shake the hand of the man who nearly murdered Kyle Rittenhouse.
Others questioned how a convicted felon managed to get past Secret Service agents and walk right up to the President of the United States? Grosskreutz has a lengthy criminal history spanning more than ten years, including drunk driving, a domestic incident involving an ex-girlfriend, burglary, and physically abusing his grandmother.
What do you think? What kind of message does the president convey to Americans when a camera captures him shaking hands with a violent criminal like Gaige Grosskreutz?
