Pelosi's San Fransisco home defaced with pig's head and fake blood, vandals paint '$2K' after Covid pay blocking
The lawmaker's garage door was defaced with black graffiti saying '$2k Cancel RENT! We want everything!'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a shocking start to 2021 as her home in San Francisco saw vandalism on Friday, January 1 night with a pig’s head in pool of red paint and a message written with spray-paint that spoke about the failed $2,000 stimulus checks. Photo of the disturbing scene was shared on social media by pro-Donald Trump television personality Maggie VandenBerghe that showed Pelosi’s white garage door defaced with black graffiti text reading: “$2k Cancel RENT! We want everything!” The perpetrators also spray-painted two letter ‘A’s in circles, mostly identified as the symbol for anarchism.
The veteran Californian representative recently had a mixed bag of success in the legislature over the passing of a fresh Covid-19 relief package. While the Democrat was happy to see President Trump wanting to raise the paychecks from $600 to $2,000 and the House dominated by her party passing a new bill last Monday, December 28, to that effect, it was blocked repeatedly by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who called it “socialism for rich people”.
TMZ cited the local police as saying that they responded to a vandalism call at the speaker’s residence around 3 am and although the police took a report, it was not clear yet if the law-keepers had any suspects. VandenBerghe, who calls herself a “Pro Trump Patriot” who is up “Exposing Leftist Hypocrisy & Hate” on Twitter, accused the police of trying to cover up the incident and the media of remaining silent. “City called to clean up at 3 am & police attempting to stop photos of scene. Media SILENT,” VandenBerghe, also a resident of California, said on Twitter and Facebook.

The San Francisco mansion that faced vandalism is located in the city’s posh Pacific Heights neighborhood and is among the 80-year-old Pelosi’s several homes in the Golden State. The house, featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms, is worth $5.4 million, property records cite.
It is not the first time that Pelosi's SF house has seen protest
The same residence saw a small protest in September when the Democrat was slammed for going to a local salon for hair styling despite it being shut because of Covid-19 restrictions. A YouTuber filmed himself defecating on the driveway of the same residence saying he did so as a “peaceful protest”. The live-streamed video, titled “Poopalosi,” was posted as a protest against a lack of resources for people living on the streets — while those in power got haircuts and lived their daily lives fairly unaltered despite the hardships created by the pandemic.
In April last year, Pelosi faced criticism after she flaunted her kitchen freezer filled with expensive ice cream pints during an interview, saying she wouldn’t have made it without having ice creams. No comment has yet been received from the House speaker over Friday’s incident.
The political circles faced a deadlock over passing of the new stimulus checks with McConnell refusing to pass the Democrats’ standalone bill despite President Trump backing it. He told the Democratic leadership in the Congress that the Senate will not be “bullied” into passing it, dashing hopes for millions of Americans coping with economic hardships to get a higher pay.
Pelosi had requested the House Republicans to allow the Senate to vote on the bill after it was passed in the lower chamber through a bipartisan vote. “The Democrats and Republicans in the House have passed that legislation. Who is holding up that distribution to the American people? Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans,” she said on Wednesday, December 29. “In blocking it, they are in denial of the hardship the American people are experiencing now, health wise, financially, and every way,” she added.
But going by the vandalism her garage door faced, it is clear that there are many Americans who are not happy with her efforts to raise the stimulus paychecks.
