Nancy Pelosi’s Husband ‘Violently Assaulted’ in San Francisco Home by Intruder Shouting ‘Where is Nancy?’
Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was taken to a hospital Friday morning after being “violently assaulted” by a man with a hammer who broke into the couple’s home in San Francisco, California. The assailant, who reportedly shouted, “Where is Nancy?,” was arrested when police arrived at the scene.
Key Quotes: A spokesman for Paul Pelosi said he was expected to make a full recovery. According to CNN (Left bias), which multiple outlets cited as first reporting the story, the intruder tried to tie Paul Pelosi up “until Nancy got home,” telling police he was “waiting for Nancy.” The San Francisco Chronicle (Left bias) identified the suspect in an exclusive report.
For Context: While Speaker Pelosi has long been the subject of criticism from the political right, her husband has also come under public scrutiny over his stock trading. The incident is likely to inspire comparisons to a man who was arrested near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home in June after his sister convinced him to abandon a plan to attack Kavanaugh. Threats toward Pelosi herself are not new; rioters at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 shouted “Nancy, Nancy,” and “All we want is Pelosi.”
How the Media Covered It: The incident was a top story in almost every major outlet across the spectrum Friday morning, with most headlines focusing on the “where is Nancy?” quote.
