Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was reportedly the victim of a violent assault in his San Francisco home.
A statement released by the House Speaker’s office early Friday morning reported the incident but provided few concrete clues as to what took place.
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” the statement reads. “The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation.”
The Speaker’s office thankfully indicates Mr. Pelosi is “receiving excellent medical care” at a local hospital and “is expected to make a full recovery.”
They note Nancy Pelosi was not at her residence at the time of the assault.

Paul Pelosi Assaulted
News of the assault on Paul Pelosi is eerily and frightening reminiscent of the attack suffered by Senator Rand Paul.

In 2017, Mr. Pail was physically assaulted by his neighbor, leaving him with a myriad of injuries including six broken ribs, pleural effusion, and, consequently, pneumonia which resulted in part of his lung being removed.
While we are wishing Paul Pelosi a full and speedy recovery, leftists weren’t quite so kind when it came to the Republican Senator’s assault.
I hope that Paul Pelosi makes a full recovery and that his assailant rots in jail for a long, long time.

In fact, Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, came under fire for tweeting in 2020 that “Rand Paul’s neighbor was right.”
Rand Paul was just diagnosed with the deadly Chinese Virus
And Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, @sfpelosi tweeted:
“Rand Paul’s neighbor was right” in reference to the man that beat Senator Paul and sent him to the hospital
Will @SpeakerPelosi condemn this?
RT so she can’t ignore!

Violent Crime on the Rise in San Francisco
Paul Pelosi’s assault is a stark reminder that violent crime in the liberal enclave of San Francisco has been on the rise.
A video surfaced last summer showing retail theft at a San Francisco Walgreens in action.
“In June, a masked man was caught on video at a Walgreens, stuffing items into a trash bag before cruising out of the store on a bicycle,” the Associated Press reported.
Walgreens responded in short order, announcing they were closing five stores in San Francisco due to an uptick in “organized retail crime” in the Democrat-dominated city.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors, consisting exclusively of Democrats, voted in 2019 to adopt a new set of “person first” language guidelines that would sugarcoat terms used to describe criminals according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The new guidelines dictated that somebody formerly labeled as a ‘convicted felon’ would henceforth be referred to as a “formerly incarcerated person,” a “justice-involved” person, or simply a “returning resident.”

The ‘justice-involved’ person who assaulted Paul Pelosi is reportedly in custody.
Mr. Pelosi was arrested for DUI for crashing his 2021 Porsche into another vehicle on May 28th.
He reportedly handed over a “police privilege” card during the arrest, seemingly an attempt to curry favor in the hopes of avoiding trouble.

Paul Pelosi was sentenced to five days in jail for the DUI, along with three years of probation, and was ordered to pay $4,927 in restitution for medical bills and lost wages to the victim.
Mr. Pelosi also found himself in hot water over controversial stock purchases made in June.
A financial disclosure shows he made a million-dollar stock purchase in semiconductor company NVIDIA, buying 20,000 shares ahead of a congressional vote to provide a $52 billion subsidy increasing U.S. manufacturing of computer chips.
