On December 4, Mr. Pelosi made his first public appearance since the attack, attending the Kennedy Center Honors along with his wife and a long list of dignitaries. Pelosi wore a hat and a glove on one hand for the duration of the event. Among the Pelosis attending the event included President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Vice President Kamala Harris, and others.
Pelosi endured a brutal attack in his home in late October in what appeared to be a politically motivated incident. The alleged assailant, David DePape, faces charges that include attempted murder for attacking Pelosi with a hammer. He pleaded not guilty to the charges on November 1. According to The Department of Homeland Security, he’s a Canadian who has been here for years on an expired visa.
The incident caused the congresswoman’s husband serious damage. During her weekly press conference on December 1, the House speaker was asked about the health of Mr. Pelosi. She thanked the reporter for asking and replied that he’s “coming along,” but noted that “It’s going to take a a while.”
