It seems that former Republican congressman and current CEO of Truth Social Devin Nunes finds it humorous that a Donald Trump supporter suspect attacked the husband of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a hammer during a home invasion.
On Saturday, Nunes shared a photo on Truth Social depicting a man in a monster costume holding a large mallet in an offensive manner, joking about the attack.
After false allegations circulated that the suspect in the Friday night break-in and hammer attack on Paul Pelosi in their California home was wearing just his underwear, Nunes tweeted, “At least this guy has his clothes on.”
Paul Pelosi was taken to the emergency room of a nearby hospital after suffering a skull fracture.
Authorities reported that on Friday, they had detained a 42-year-old man named David DePape for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, and burglary. Online posts by one DePape allegedly discuss QAnon and justify Trump’s time in office. According to HuffPost’s sources, DePape broke into the Pelosis’ home with the intention of confronting Nancy Pelosi.
Twitter users who disagreed with the author were not amused.
Trump has remained silent about the attack as of Saturday night.
Virginia’s Republican governor, Glenn Youngkin, had some ideas about the Pelosi house invasion and decided to express them, much like Nunes did.
On Friday, Youngkin declared that “violence has no place in society.” We’re sending Nancy Pelosi back to California to be with her injured husband, he continued. He said this while stumping for Yesli Vega, a Republican running for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
Vice President Joe Biden, in a passionate statement delivered on Friday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, condemned the “despicable,” hate-fueled hammer attack.
Biden declared, “Enough is enough” (Enough is enough). “Regardless of your political affiliation, every person of good conscience needs to speak out unequivocally against the violence in our politics.”
