Paul Pelosi public for the first time after the attack at the Kennedy Center Honors

Paul Pelosi attended the Kennedy Center Honors Sunday night in his first public appearance since he was brutally attacked with a hammer by an intruder more than a month ago.

Paul Pelosi wore a hat and glove to the awards ceremony, possibly to hide injuries he sustained in the attack.

He had undergone extensive surgery following the violent attack in October and still faces a “long road” to a full recovery, Nancy Pelosi, also 82, said last month.

After the violent attack in which a madman broke into the Pelosi home in San Francisco on October 28 and smashed his head in with a hammer, doctors had to remove, reshape and reassemble his skull.

Paul Pelosi spent about six days in Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and the trauma center’s intensive care unit.

Last week, Nancy Pelosi, who is stepping down as Democrat leader in the House of Representatives, said her husband is “coming along” but needs more time to fully recover.

“It’s going to be a while,” she said during her weekly news conference on Thursday. “It will take a while. Head injuries are – they have repercussions beyond the surgery. It’s a big deal.”

David DePape, 42, was arrested for the assault and charged with attempted murder, attempted kidnapping and assault. He had reportedly planned to target Nancy Pelosi, but she wasn’t home at the time.
