Trump Goes Full QAnon On Paul Pelosi Incident
Donald Trump on Tuesday joined the conspiracy theory craze sweeping the Republican party about the attack on Paul Pelosi, promoting baseless allegations bout the incident.
During an interview on Philadelphia’s Chris Stigall radio show Tuesday morning, the former president parroted a string of conservatives who have sowed doubts since the 82-year-old was confronted in his bedroom by a hammer-wielding intruder last week, suggesting that “weird things” had been going on recently in the San Francisco home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her husband.
“The glass it seems was broken from the inside to the out so it wasn’t a break-in, it was a breakout. I don’t know, you hear the same things I do,” Trump said.
“It’s a lot of bad stuff, and I’m not a fan of Nancy Pelosi, but what’s going on there is very sad. The whole thing is crazy. I mean, if there’s even a little bit of truth to what’s been said,” he added.
“The window was broken in and it was strange the cops were standing there practically from the moment it all took place. So, you’re going to have to explain that to your audience, including me.”
Law enforcement officials have been quite clear about the facts of the case. Police reports and FBI documents refute several claims pushed by conservatives about the attack, including that Paul Pelosi had a relationship with the intruder and that there was no break-in.
The attacker, David DePape, 42, has been charged with an array of state and federal crimes over the assault, including attempted murder and attempted kidnapping.
Mr. Pelosi sustained serious injuries, including a skull fracture, and is still in recovery after undergoing surgery.
