NBC anchor Maria Shriver sparked online outrage for tweeting her controversial thoughts on Friday’s verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

Rittenhouse, who is now 18, was charged with first-degree reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment after shooting and killing two men and injuring another during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020 following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse would have faced a mandatory life sentence if convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.

The article goes on to state the following:

Shriver, however, said she was confused by the jury’s decision. She appeared to join several other media figures who have expressed their outrage over the verdict and suggested the defendant was guilty as charged.


Shriver tweeted, “I’m trying to take a beat to digest the Rittenhouse verdict. My son just asked me how it’s possible that he didn’t get charged for anything. How is that possible? I don’t have an answer for him.”

“The idea that someone could be out with a semi-automatic weapon, kill people, and walk is stunning. I look forward to hearing from the jury. This is a moment for them to explain how they came to their decision,” she added.

Twitter users have mocked and slammed Shriver over her remarks.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) laid it all out for her in a series of Twitter posts:

1/x Pretty stunning that she’s an @nbc anchor. She “doesn’t have an answer.” Try this:

(1) He WAS charged with six counts. That thing that just finished was his trial.
(2) A jury of his peers found him not guilty.
(3) Why? The defense argued he was engaged in self-defense.

2/x (4) What facts support self defense?

– the three people shot all chased him, assaulted him and/or tried to grab his gun
– ALL THREE were convicted felons (on served 15 years for child molesting)
– the defense argued Rittenhouse feared for his life

3/x (5) You might personally disagree, but the jury heard evidence & presumably concluded he was acting to defend himself from what he reasonably perceived to be an imminent threat to his life.

(6) Also, ALL THREE of the people shot were White (contrary to false media reports).

4/x (7) Generally “white supremacists” don’t shoot White people.

(8) Numerous Dem politicians & corporate media outlets (including your employer and especially @msnbc) recklessly alleged he was a white supremacist.
(9) NO evidence was adduced at trial to support that claim.

5/x (10) A whole bunch of those corrupt media outlets are now retaining defamation lawyers, because they’re ALL about to get sued—and the liability could well be massive.

@mariashriver hope that helps!

Others weighed in as well.  Below is a sampling:

Joey Jones: “Evidence, Testimony, Wisconsin law, and the Constitution.”

Stephen L. Miller: “The problem as Maria Shriver, an NBC anchor sees it, is the jury who heard all the evidence did not come to the same conclusion as her son, who heard none of the evidence.”

Jorge Bonilla: “The state was unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Rittenhouse committed the crimes for which he was charged. This concludes my TED talk.”

Stephen Gutowski: “What? Were you not following the case at all? It’s one thing to disagree with the verdict, but another thing entirely to say you don’t have even a basic grasp of the issues at play. Especially when you’re an anchor for a major news network.”

Kurt Schlichter: “A woman whose family spent their lives behind armed guards – and not for no reason, considering how leftists murdered two of her family – is stunned that the peasants might also want protection from Marxists. America has privilege, but based on class, not color.”

Several people have brought up the case of her uncle, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, who had a car accident in 1969 in which a female passenger was killed.

  1. NBC ( Never Been Conscious ) media propaganda must have have put Maria to sleep and she was awakened too late to allow common sense & actual facts to advise her feelings…

  2. I agree totally with the above comments! Did she even Follow the trial??? Does she have a Brain????
    Might be a good idea if all of these msm fools actually read and listen to the FACTS!

  3. Why don’t you understand? Because your a damn polluted liberal who’s ex husband said “ fuck ya freedom”!! No fuck u and every one like you! You add holes willfully lie to the public, make up ur own stories and run with it! Kyle protected himself, and for all those who says he shouldn’t of been there!!! ITS HIS COMMUNITY!! THE ONLY ONES WHO SHOULD NOT BEEN THERE ARE THE RIOTERS!! Why don’t you start putting accountability where the hell it belongs!

  4. Wowwww! I really enjoyed reading all the comments. Hopefully her brains could “digest” all the answers she received. But I don’t think she has any, her ignorance is really obvious!🤦‍♀️

  5. Stand her next to piglousy and see if you can tell the difference. She probably cheered when JFK was sniped out by her friends. Oh don’t forget she invested in dumocraps campaign’s and has to hang tight with them so she can watch her money go down the drain. Or is her X still controlling her. I never figured a Kennedy to be so dumb.

  6. What I really like about this whole debacle on some choosing to follow the DEMONcrat mice is how incredibly self-destructive they are with their primitive comments. Operation Implosion is going so well….I could not have seen these dirty, infested mice follow the crumb trail so well and easily. At least Republicans know how this works when you comment from the pocket of emotion or from not researching first. We know what they will do before they do it. We know how the big picture looks before snapping. I love DML website because we can voice our emotions here knowing every one of us who agrees in community space understands where it comes from. It’s comes from observation on what is wrong with corrupt individuals. DML is a space to have a voice without it being projected by the DEMONcrat narcissists and their flying monkeys. We get our emotions from knowing deep inside all the darkness caused by the Leftist Radical Marxists goes against the fabric of being a decent, responsible American.

  7. Who cares about her opinion. If you didn’t watch the trial from beginning to end then you need to keep your opinion to yourself

  8. She doesn’t say which son; she has two, one is 28 and the other 24 years old. I might ask where THEY have been hiding as well. How could they possibly not know the details but be curious enough to ask, but get such a dumb response as his/their mother gave. Oh, yeah, they probably watch her network only. Circular ignorance abounds.
