Pence ironically wrapped up his speech Wednesday night by asserting that if America reelects him and the President for another four years, "we will make American great again, again". Carlson told his viewers on Wednesday during a segment on Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager arrested and charged with murder for the incidents on Tuesday.

"So are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder?" he continued. "How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?" The company will reportedly no longer advertise on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." .

Naturally, the comment did not go over well on social media, and #FireTuckerCarlson was trending on Twitter nationwide on Thursday morning, with many calling for Fox News to fire the host over his comments, stating that he was rationalizing a terrorist act and justifying murder. "Watch this scene from last night".

Gabi Insurance also tweeted it does "not condone his words and will not participate in his show indefinitely".

Carson's comments, which he shared on social media, came just hours after news Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager, had been arrested in IL and will face murder charges for the shooting deaths of the two demonstrators on Tuesday night.

"Kenosha has devolved into anarchy because the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it. People in charge from the governor of Wisconsin on down refused to enforce the law". Onlookers alerted police that Rittenhouse - who was underage and not allowed to openly carry a weapon - was roaming the street with a semiautomatic rifle slung around his neck. He spoke to reporters before the shooting about being part of a self-styled citizen patrol who came to Kenosha to protect businesses from vandalism. The protesters were demanding justice for Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot and wounded by the police.

Business investment fell a record 16.2 per cent due to shutdowns, travel restrictions, work and school at home, as well as uncertainty about the global economy.

Fred Guttenberg, a gun safety advocate whose daughter died in 2018's Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, called Carlson a "lunatic who will get people killed".

Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said in a statement that Rittenhouse "had nothing to do with our campaign and we fully support our fantastic law enforcement for their swift action in this case".

Reactions to the vigilantism - especially the Kenosha police's kid-glove handling of the White youth shooter - seemed to subsume the other big story of the news cycle, the third night of the Republican National Convention, which featured a keynote by Vice President Mike Pence focusing heavily on "law and order", and asserting that it is "on the ballot" this presidential election.

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pushed back at Pavlich's comments during the conversation on the network's "Outnumbered". Everyone could see what was happening in Kenosha. The president's son said Carlson "never endorsed vigilante justice".
