HBO’s John Oliver Blatantly Lied About Kyle Rittenhouse

17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse should be the most hated person in the United States — if you believe everything the mainstream media says about him.

The altercation between Rittenhouse and a handful of protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin has ignited a nationwide debate on laws regarding self-defense with a firearm. A slew of mobile videos showing different angles of the conflict have gone viral, as have a myriad of blatant lies and misinformation.

One of the worst offenders of this was HBO host and self-proclaimed comedian John Oliver. His program Last Week Tonight is marketed as a comedic take on current events, when its really just another propaganda hour for the political left.

Recently, Oliver tore into the Rittenhouse case, essentially repeating every talking point from sites like PolitiFact — often used by the left to justify their claims. Oliver doubled down on the narrative that Rittenhouse drove across state lines with the express purpose to kill people with an AR-15 “assault rifle.” Based on what the HBO host said, you would think that Rittenhouse had no connection to the community being set ablaze at all.

It turns out that none of this is true. While Rittenhouse does live in neighboring Illinois, he did have a job as a community lifeguard in Kenosha — a 30 minute drive from his home. This isn’t terribly unusual — many Americans have much longer commutes than this.

Oliver is also very clever with picking and choosing which gun laws to hype up, and which to ignore completely. Also, the idea that Rittenhouse illegally brought a firearm across state lines is just false.

There were almost too many lies to count, so we’re going to let Steven Crowder take it from here.

  1. Rittenhouse would have been better off to have been doing his job as lifeguard instead of taking to the streets that were unsafe to begin with………Seems that the youth of today don’t make good choices, so they either get killed or arrested………

  2. To HBO you need to take him off the air! He’s not just work on HBO but for the democratic party! The 17 year old is innocent from what all the videos out there show! You shouldn’t allow fake reports of any kind on any of you platforms!

  3. John Oliver don’t go out in public without a bodyguard!

  4. I do not fault a person for defending himself or herself from those who want to do them great harm. I believe Rittenhouse is not quilty of murder. What he did ,seems to me to be self defense. The the criminals that he shot do not draw my sympathy.
    With that said, I do not believe it was a good idea for him to be there in the first place under the circumstances. I was told by someone last night he was encouraged to go by his mother. If that is true she did him a great disservice.
