Former President Donald Trump addressed California Republicans Friday, where he took a brutal dig at Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband, Paul who was savagely beaten in the head by a right-wing conspiracy theorist via Media Ite.
It has been noted that The CAGOP crowd erupted with boos at the mere mention of the former Speaker of the House, when Trump claimed, “And we’ll stand up to crazy Nancy Pelosi who ruined San Francisco.”
Trump then turned to the camera and asked, “How’s her husband doing, by the way? Anybody know?”
The crowd laughed at that reference to Paul Pelosi, who suffered a skull fracture and limb injuries when he was savagely attacked in his San Francisco home. Police body cam footage from October 2023 showed officers banging on the front door, which opened to reveal Paul trying to wrestle an object out of a man’s hands.
“What’s going on, man?” one officer asked as a flashlight revealed the item to be a hammer.
“Drop the hammer!” the officer yelled, before saying, “What is going on?”
It is noted that at that, the suspect could be seen going after Paul with the hammer while police rushed into the residence and wrestled the man to the floor. The officers requested backup and medics as groans could be heard in the background.
Police later learned that the suspect, David DePape, allegedly broke into the Pelosis’ home looking for the Speaker and repeating, “Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?”
President Joe Biden later called out Trump for fomenting political violence, saying:
“You know, it’s reported that the same chant was used by this guy they have in custody that was used on January 6th in the attack on the U.S. Capitol. I’m not making this up. This is reported. I can’t guarantee it. I can tell you what’s being reported. And the chant was, “Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?”
This is despicable. There’s no place in America. There’s too much violence, political violence, too much hatred, too much vitriol.
And what makes us think that one party can talk about “stolen elections,” “Covid being a hoax,” “this is all a bunch of lies,” and it not affect people who may not be so well balanced? What makes us think that it’s not going to corrode the political climate?
Enough is enough is enough!”
Video obtained by Fox News showed DePape before the alleged attack as he broke glass to get into the house. Trump referenced this footage as well to CAGOP.
“And she’s against having a wall at our border even though she’s got a wall at her house. Which, obviously didn’t do a very good job,” he said to more laughter.
Paul Pelosi required surgery and was eventually released from the hospital. DePaper pleaded not guilty to charges that included assault and attempted murder.
