This has sparked outrage.
Not long after the body cam footage was released of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband getting attacked with a hammer by suspect David DePape was released, former President Donald Trump offered his reaction.
According to Newsweek, Paul Pelosi was attacked by David DePape with a hammer and left Pelosi severely injured with a fractured skull and needing surgery.
Then this week, the San Francisco Police Department finally decided to end speculation and rumors that were spreading about the Pelosi family and released the shocking video of Pelosi’s attack. In the video DePape can be seen holding a hammer in one of his hands as Pelosi tries to stop the man. Then just before the video cuts off, DePape can be seen swinging the hammer at Pelosi head and making contact fracturing his skull.
Former President Donald Trump reacted to the video and said, “Wow, that’s weird, and nasty. Not good!”
Trump then warned Democrats and Nancy Pelosi for allowing crime to get so bad in Democrat controlled cities for this attack to even take place.
Trump then said, “With Paul Pelosi, that’s a terrible thing, with all of them it’s a terrible thing. Look at what’s happened to San Francisco generally. Look at what’s happening in Chicago. It was far worse than Afghanistan…We have to give the police back their dignity, their respect. They can solve the problem. But today if a police officer says something that’s slightly out of line it’s like the end of his life, the end of his pension, the end of his family”
