Emotional Pelosi equates attack against husband to Jan 6, insists country needs ‘healing’

Facing a possible loss of control of the House of Representatives and following the bizarre incident when her husband was smacked in the head with a hammer in the couple’s San Francisco home, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been laying low but surfaced in an exclusive interview with CNN where she recalled the moment that she was informed of the attack by Capitol Police.

In her interview with star anchor Anderson Cooper, Madame Speaker reacted emotionally, appearing to be on the verge of choking up. “I was sleeping in Washington D.C., I had just gotten in the night before from San Francisco and the um… I hear the doorbell ring, I think five-something, I look up, I see it’s five… they must be the wrong apartment,” she said.

“It rings again and then bang, bang, bang, bang, bang on the door,” she said. “So I run to the door and I’m very scared. I see the Capitol Police and they say ‘We have to come in and talk to you.’ and I’m thinking my children, my grandchildren. I never thought it would be Paul because I knew he wouldn’t be out and about, shall we say. And so they came in at that time. We didn’t even know where he was or what his condition was. We just knew there was an assault on him in our home.”

Also in her interview with Cooper, Pelosi linked the assault on the 82-year-old stock-picking marvel to the so-called “insurrection” on January 6, 2021, an event that Democrats mistakenly believed could be exploited to pave their way to permanent political power until they realized much too late that voters were more concerned with matters that actually affected their own lives like gas prices and the worst inflation in four decades.

“Absolutely, there’s no question,” Pelosi said when asked about the incident and January 6 despite her husband’s assailant actually being an illegal alien with mental problems and apparent leftist political inclinations. “It’s the same, the same thing, copycatter, whatever it happens to be,  inflamed by the same misrepresentation.”

“But the fact is right now it’s time for healing,” she said. “We want the country to heal. This is not a path that we can continue on. And we want people to run for office local in every way, and you can’t say to them you’re risking the safety of your families by going forward. There are no guarantees of safety.”

When pressed by Cooper on whether she would consider retirement depending on the results of Tuesday’s elections and whether Mr. Pelosi’s assault and long recovery will impact her plans, the lifelong politician responded that it definitely will.

“There’s obviously been a lot of discussion about whether you’d retire if Democrats lose the House,” Cooper said. “I know you’re not gonna answer that question so I’m not even gonna ask that question… but, I will ask can you confirm that you’ve made a decision about what you would do?”

“That’s like asking the question,” the giggly Pelosi responded.

“No, I’m not asking what the decision is,” Cooper said. “I’m just asking, have you looked ahead and I mean, have you made a decision in your mind whatever that decision might be?”

“Well I have to say my decision would be affected about what happened the last week or two,” she replied.

Cooper kept prodding, “Will your decision be affected by the attack in any way?”

“Yes,” Pelosi said.
