Gaige Grosskreutz, Kyle Rittenhouse’s 3rd attacker who was shot in the bicep, went on Good Morning America on Thursday to answer questions about the trial he testified in days earlier. When asked what he thought of Rittenhouse’s testimony, he referred to him as a “child who had just gotten caught”. When the show host pressed him further about pointing his gun at Rittenhouse, Grosskreutz contradicted his court testimony and said he did not point his gun at the teenager.
The Kyle Rittenhouse self-defense trial has gotten the attention of the media and they are running every play against him.
On Thursday, ABC’s Good Morning America had Gaige Grosskreutz on to discuss his reaction to Rittenhouse’s testimony and the trial as a whole.
When GMA host Michael Strahan asked Grosskreutz what he thought of Rittenhouse’s testimony, the “People’s Revolution” affiliated protestor said, “To me, it seemed like a child who had just gotten caught doing something that he wasn’t supposed to — more upset that he was caught and less upset about what he had done and what he had taken and the numerous lives that he affected through his actions that night.”
Grosskreutz was also asked about pointing his gun at Rittenhouse. He initially seemed hesitant to contradict his court testimony saying he “allegedly” pointed his gun at Rittenhouse. After Strahan reminded him that “here you’re allowed to say whatever you feel like you need to say,” Grosskreutz proceeded to deny his court testimony that he pointed his gun at Rittenhouse at all.
Grosskreutz’s lawyer was also on the show and called Rittenhouse an “active shooter.”

“Here you’re allowed to say whatever you feel like you need to say.” - Michael Strahan, Good Morning America host
