Some users noticed that Paul Pelosi was holding a drink in his hand which is not typically something you’d be doing during a “brutal attack.”
Theories began to swirl through Twitter. Some users saw this as proof that their theories that Pelosi and DePape had a past was vindicated.
Others however noted that Pelosi was trying to appear calm and collected to deescalate the situation.

Mike Cernovich took a different approach.
“It’s called deescalation,” he said. “Do any of you supposed experts on home security have any understanding of how you’re supposed to respond in these situations? If you’re 80 year old Paul Pelosi, you can’t body slam a 300 pound meth head. You CALM him down and let police handle.”

Candace Owens agreed.
I agree. After hearing the 911 call it’s very apparent Paul Pelosi was trying to keep Dylan Depape calm while also alerting police that something was very wrong.
That’s exactly what you should do in that situation in my opinion. https://t.co/qF8NOiffgF

Why did NBC retract their report that Paul Pelosi was in his underwear?
Why did NBC suspend Miguel Almaguer?
