(Republicaninformer.com)- After being severely beaten in late October, Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, concealed his wounds at the Kennedy Center Honors.
The pair, 82 years old, joined President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff on Sunday at the Washington, D.C. event honoring artists’ contributions to American culture through the performing arts.
The John F. Kennedy Center recognized George Clooney, Gladys Knight, Amy Grant, U2, and conductor Tania León, among others.
Paul Pelosi wore a black hat and a black glove to the event despite having suffered a fractured skull, severe injuries to his right arm, and broken hands resulting from the attack. This was his first public outing following the incident.
On October 28, his suspected assailant David DePape allegedly broke into Paul and Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco residence while looking for the Speaker and yelled, “Where is Nancy?”
A number of state and federal charges, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, residential burglary, elder abuse, false imprisonment, threats against a public official and their family, assault against a member of a federal official’s close family, and attempted kidnapping of a federal official, have since been brought against the 42-year-old.
In a November interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Nancy Pelosi talked about her husband’s physical and psychological recovery.
Nancy Pelosi went on to describe how serious her husband’s operation was.
“The skull needed to be removed, reshaped, and then put back on so it wouldn’t penetrate or scratch the brain. It’s a rather significant operation, too. Hematomas and the rest are a constant problem.”
Pelosi said, “He’s doing OK,” when asked how he was feeling emotionally.
“It takes a while. But he is aware that he must pace himself.” “He is a true gentleman since he is not complaining. He is aware that it will take time, though. He’s very worried about how traumatizing it will be for our kids and grandkids. And we worry about how traumatizing it will be for him.”
