As usual, when an event occurs, there are reactions to it. With the event in question being the assault of Paul Pelosi by David DePape, there are two big reactions that are trending online in recent days — with some wild conspiracy theories being spread.
The first is that DePape was supposedly an alt-right radical that tried to break in and assassinate Nancy Pelosi, and the second is that he's actually a gay homeless prostitute that was engaging in some sort of 2 a.m. romp with Paul Pelosi that turned sour and ended with a hammer fight.
This second theory is currently running rampant on Twitter, following some unconfirmed reports that pushed a different piece of the story. This, combined with Paul's previous incident in which he was intoxicated, gave meme creators ample material to create some and post them online.
As is typical when it comes to events like this, people will quickly start to create memes and push their version of what they think the events were — whether in jest or seriousness. This led to a lot of memes about Paul Pelosi being gay or having Nancy Pelosi supporting him for his sexuality.
Another spin of the conspiracy is taking shots at the perpetrator, David DePape, with pictures being passed around online that purportedly show his house in San Francisco and many claiming that because he supposedly has things like a Pride flag outside a residence they claim he lives in, he couldn't possibly have attacked Pelosi for political reasons.
This also created a trend in which people began to post about the dangers of the hammers themselves, with a Ted Cruz image being used to try and ban "assault hammers" from being licensed.
While these theories are completely unfounded, it hasn't stopped them from being spread (and memed) all around the web.
