Good Morning America interviewed Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot in the arm by Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin during an August 2020 riot. Grosskreutz’s attorney was also present during the interview. Considering what unfolded during the trial, this clip is about what you’d expect to take place on a mainstream media outlet in terms of what isn’t mentioned:
EXCLUSIVE: “To me, he seemed like a child … more upset that he was caught and less upset about what he had done … and the numerous lives that he affected.” — Gage Grosskreutz, the sole survivor shot by Kyle Rittenhouse, reacts to his testimony. https://t.co/DRURCHHX5R pic.twitter.com/wIKHjbVyH1

It’s hardly surprising that there was no pushback in that clip. The media’s already returning to their pre-trial narratives in spite of what transpired during the trial:
This guy admitted under oath that Rittenhouse didn't shoot him until he pointed his gun at Rittenhouse. https://t.co/mi4Re8HN1J

so how much did gma pay this guy to come on? because his testimony in court was a 180 of this armchair psychiatrist schtick. https://t.co/wzueJ9bPw5

Grosskreutz made one of the prosecuting attorneys literally do a facepalm after he admitted during questioning this week that he’d pointed his gun at Rittenhouse before he was shot in the arm:

A slightly longer clip:
THIS CLIP IS THE HEART OF THE DEFENSE.
He denies it then is forced to acknowledge it while looking at the EXACT frame where his bicep is VAPORIZED.

Good Morning America didn’t bother to mention that — at least not in the clip they tweeted — and it certainly doesn’t look as if Grosskreutz was going to be challenged much.
It was a RIOT, not a "protest". And Kyle fired his weapon AFTER Gage pointed his illegally concealed pistol at him. Someone once said "the media is the enemy of the people" and you guys just keep proving it.

I can't belive your program let him on the air to gaslight your audience.

That’s not what the video showed. He pointed a loaded gun at his head and got shot.

How many people will be angry enough to riot after watching this and Rittenhouse is found not guilty? https://t.co/tC8ugzeA69

And the media will step back and smile if that happens, knowing what they helped create yet again.
So what does he have to say about all of his lies that we’re exposed during cross?

Apparently very few in the mainstream media plan to ask him (or his lawyer) about what actually transpired during the trial.
