Biden denounces ‘despicable’ attack on US Speaker Pelosi’s husband

An intruder attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer, fracturing his skull in the early hours after breaking into the couple’s California house in search of the speaker, according to officials.

Addressing a campaign rally in Philadelphia, Biden said political violence had “no place” in the United States, adding “Enough is enough is enough.”

Biden also referenced media reports that the assailant was chanting “Where is Nancy,” the same chant used during the deadly January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

“I am not making this up,” Biden said. “This is reported.”

Paul Pelosi was “attacked at home by an assailant who acted with force, and threatened his life while demanding to see the speaker,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said earlier Friday.

Paul Pelosi, 82 — who underwent surgery and is recovering in hospital — was at home alone, as his wife was working in Washington.

With less than two weeks to go before the crucial US midterm elections, members of both parties have sounded the alarm about the potential for political violence.
