After a severed pig’s head was left in front of her San Francisco home, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was disappointed that someone would desecrate someone’s house by leaving “inedible” animal parts. The disturbing discovery arrived on New Year’s Day after alleged anarchists graffitied Pelosi’s home with messages like “cancel rent” and “we want everything,” a possible reference to COVID-19 relief programs.
In a statement, Pelosi said it wasn’t strictly the vandalism that disappointed her, but that someone would leave parts of an animal’s body that wouldn’t be consumed by the average person.
“You leave the animal’s entire body, that’s one thing,” Pelosi said during a press conference on Sunday. “But just the head? Unless you’re one of those wackos who eats pig snout, that’s inedible.”
The Speaker’s tone did change somewhat after reporters pressed her on the reason her home was vandalized, likely being that a comprehensive COVID-19 relief plan has yet to pass the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I admit, we have failed the American people,” Pelosi affirmed, speaking directly to CNN’s new camera. “While I stand by my original statement… you know, about the pig’s head… but I apologize to the individuals who vandalized my home. You do deserve better.”
