THE WRAP: Former child star Ricky Schroder, 50, contributed "significantly" to a fund to raise $2M to bond accused Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, out of prison. Rittenhouse crossed state lines with an assault weapon to try to restore order to a city in another state in which he had no business being, and he shot and killed two people. Later, Schroder proudly posed for a triumphant photo with Rittenhouse. On the same day he made his militia-based allegiance known, Schroder moved to Parler. Surprise!
