The questionable circumstances surrounding the injuries suffered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband may be no joke to daughter Alexandra Pelosi, but her effort to demonize the right may have only teed up further ridicule after she likened Paul Pelosi to one iconic movie monster.

In an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson airing on the upcoming edition of “Sunday Morning,” the youngest of the Pelosis’ five children sought to promote the HBO documentary “Pelosi in the House.” As part of a preview for the conversation, a clip was released where Dickerson asked her how her father was after getting struck with a hammer on Oct. 28 when his San Francisco home was reportedly broken into by a man allegedly looking to torture the speaker.
“He’s getting better every day. Thank you for asking,” Pelosi began before suggesting, “The scars are healing. I mean, he looks like Frankenstein. The scars are healing, but I think the emotional scars–I don’t know if those ever heal.”
“I mean that’s tough, it’s really tough,” she went on. “I don’t think it’s ok for an 82-year-old man to be attacked in his home in the middle of the night because of whatever his wife does for work.”
Pelosi went on to play the victim herself as she expressed, “I haven’t slept since the night my father was attacked,” before she decried unspecified political figures, presumably Republicans, for supposedly making light of the assault.
“I don’t care who you are and who you vote for. Nobody should think it is funny that an 82-year-old man got attacked in the middle of the night,” she said. “And yet, like, a sitting governor and a wannabe governor and members of Congress were laughing about it.”
The filmmaker seemed to be alluding in part to remarks from Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-Va.) who had said at a campaign event following the incident “There’s no room for violence anywhere, but we’re going to send [Nancy Pelosi] back to be with [Paul] in California.”
After the remarks, Youngkin’s office issued a statement that detailed a note of apology the governor sent to the speaker, “My full intention on my comments was to categorically state that violence and the kind of violence that was perpetrated against Speaker Pelosi’s husband is not just unacceptable, it’s atrocious. And I didn’t do a great job with that.”
“And so listen, it was a personal note and it was one between me and the speaker, just to reflect those sentiments,” the statement said further.
Meanwhile, as previously reported, it had been readily apparent since the incident first took place that the notion Republican officials had done anything but denounce the violence against Paul Pelosi was patently absurd.

Of course, as rumors swirl that the Manhattan-based junior Pelosi may at some point relocate to succeed her mother as representative for San Francisco, the invocation of Frankenstein’s monster was readily responded to on social media.
