House Speaker Nancy Pelosi indicates that the recent brutal hammer attack on her husband in their San Francisco home has her pondering retirement.
Her comments came during her first sit-down interview since the attack, an appearance with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“There’s been a lot of discussion about whether you’d retire if Democrats lose the House,” Cooper said, referencing the Democrats’ expected midterm shellacking on Tuesday.
While declining to make an announcement, Pelosi acknowledged, “The decision will be affected about what happened over the last week or two.”
Cooper continued to press: “Will your decision be impacted by the attack in any way?”
“Yes,” she replied.

Rather than admitting she’s about to be retired due to a Republican red wave, she wants to be able to say that political violence caused by Trump and his supporters forced her to step aside.
Pelosi even said she agrees with President Biden that there is a direct correlation between the hammer attack and January 6th, calling it a “copycatter” event “inflamed by the same misrepresentation.”
“There’s no question. It’s the same thing,” she added.

She’s an Outstanding Master of Resources
Aside from discussing retirement, Nancy Pelosi went on endlessly rave about why she was allegedly the true target of her husband’s hammer-wielding assailant.
“I’ve been a target for a long time. Because I’m very effective,” she bragged. “I’m a great … master of the legislation.”
“On the political side, I’m an outstanding, shall we say, a master of the resources necessary, intellectual, financial, political to win elections,” Pelosi added.
“So they have to put a stop to me, right, because they know that I’m about having our members succeed.”

Here again, notice the use of the word “they.” Pelosi is attempting to portray the attacker as more than a lone lunatic who broke into their home late at night, and rather, a representative of the pro-Trump movement.
She’s a master alright. A master manipulator.
Former President Donald Trump has a different term for her.
“I think she’s an animal, too, to tell you the truth,” Trump said at a rally Monday night, after referring to MS-13 gang members as the same.

Trump would go on to point out how the media will run with his ‘animal’ comment and link it to the attack at Casa de Pelosi.
“They’ll say, ‘What a horrible thing. He called Nancy Pelosi an animal,’” he predicted.
Trump was commenting on impeachment efforts led by the House Speaker.
“I will never use the word bullshit again. But what she did to us in this country … ” he lamented.
