We could write up a post on just about every line that comes out of the prosecutors’ mouths during the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. As Dana Loesch has said, what’s really on trial here is self-defense. The prosecution is arguing that it’s not self-defense if you bring a gun. It’s also arguing that Rittenhouse was a coward who resorted to gunfire rather than use his fists:
“…he was too cowardly to use his fists” is one of the worst arguments against self-defence I could imagine the prosecution using. And yet, they used it. pic.twitter.com/mlhCp7fwmY

He's admitting there was a threat which undermines their whole case.

Yes, there was a threat, but, you know, everybody takes a beating sometimes. Rittenhouse should have dropped his gun (or fired “warning shots” into the air) and taken a beating, according to Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney James Kraus.

“Everybody takes a beating sometimes” doesn’t seem like the best argument for the prosecutors here…

So yes, they would have continued to have beaten him with a skateboard and maybe a chain, but that’s life.
"Everybody takes a beating sometimes right."
Oh get bent, lardass.

Krause, making an argument that Kyle improperly overreacted to Rosenbaum lunging at him and shouldn't have fired his gun, just claimed "Everybody takes a beating sometime."
Way to pitch a compelling argument and finish on a high note.

The prosecutor, on rebuttal, argued that Rittenhouse should have let the mob attack him rather than shooting them: “Everybody takes a beating sometimes.”

“Everybody takes a beating sometimes”
Wow, imagine if any of these jurors are DV victims…
— Joey Jones (@Johnny_Joey) November 15, 2021
What kind of society do we have when a prosecutor tells a jury, "Everybody takes a beating sometime" and that is okay? I'm sure DV victims appreciate it.

Take note, Kenosha defense attorneys. I’d be bringing that up every time he prosecutes a DV case.

The prosecutor knows what he’s talking about because they took quite a beating over the last two weeks

That’s the ONE moment I wish we could’ve seen the jurors faces. I know I couldn’t have poker faced it.

Binger earlier said "many of you may have been in bar fights" 😳
— Cinderella (@dellacinderella) November 15, 2021
I want the jury polled to see how many have been in a bar fight.

It was very inconsiderate of him to not be beaten to death.
— Tracey (@Tops166) November 16, 2021
That was one of Kraus’ grossest statements, of which there were many.
— Robin, PsychRn (@CPartyof1) November 16, 2021
It doesn’t sound like a “mostly peaceful” protest if you were supposed to take a beating for being in a place “where you know violence is basically guaranteed.”
Hot take: It’s not self-defense if you bring a weapon to a place ‘where you know violence is basically guaranteed’ https://t.co/wyUhfZSBBx
