You may think that sounds like a parody or satire headline, or even a conspiracy theory, but you’d be wrong. It’s straight from her daughter Alexandra, speaking in an interview for the New York Times that published this weekend.
I’m very much not kidding. So much that I’m going straight to the blockquote for you.
“The fact that they were after me and then they hit him,” Pelosi said, looking stricken. “He’s a strong person, athletic. This has been tough. It’s going to be about three or four more months before he’s really back to normal.”
Alexandra, always the id to her mother’s superego, was more blunt: “I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her. Over Thanksgiving, she had priests coming, trying to have an exorcism of the house and having prayer services.”
See? You know what else is awesome is the choice of words in the very next paragraph.
Alexandra has always been outspoken about the personal sacrifice for the family that her mother’s public service entails, given all the demonization; the daughter teased her parents that her mother had turned their last name into a curse word.
Exorcisms and demonization — surely the MSM will spend the next day dunking on Pelosi on Twitter and mocking her faith like they do when Republicans even so much as close their eyes in prayer, right?
