Dems fume after MTG introduces bill to award Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal

Democrats were not very happy that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a bill to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal for what she called “protecting the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.”

This would be the highest honor Congress can award an individual.

A spokesperson for Rep. Gaetz, who offered Rittenhouse an internship said in response to Greene’s proposal “We are concerned that awarding Kyle with a Congressional Gold Medal will give him a big head during the internship with our office.”

Here are some of the many reactions from Democrats who did not like the idea.
