The mother of alleged Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse got a “standing ovation” at a GOP women’s group meeting in Wisconsin on Thursday night, an attendee of the event tweeted.

“Standing ovation from Waukesha County GOP women for my special guests (John Pierce) and Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle’s mom,” conservative blogger Michelle Malkin said in a Twitter post. “I was able to talk to Kyle by phone & THANK HIM for his courage!”

Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17-year-old white Illinois resident charged in the shooting deaths of two men at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha on Aug. 25.

I think I’m going to be sick.

I keep being told that I am supposed to keep an open mind and try to facilitate a dialogue with these people in order to understand their point of view. 

Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
