Arizona GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake Jokes About Pelosi Attack

HeadlineNov 01, 2022

In Arizona, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake drew laughter from a friendly crowd Monday after she joked about the attack on Paul Pelosi. Lake was speaking at a campaign event in Scottsdale. 

Kari Lake: “It is not impossible to protect our kids at school. They act like it is. Nancy Pelosi, well, she’s got protection when she’s in D.C. — apparently her house doesn’t have a lot of protection.”

Donald Trump Jr. has also mocked the attack on Paul Pelosi. On Sunday, he retweeted a photo of a pair of underwear and a hammer captioned, “Got my Paul Pelosi Halloween costume ready.”
