On Saturday, a man posted a video to YouTube that showed him pooping on the driveway of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in San Francisco, California. Now, he has revealed why he decided to do this.
The man who posted the video is a 28-year-old YouTuber who goes by “Mando” or “Armando,” and he didn’t want his real name to be released due to fear of retribution from liberals.
Mando told the New York Post that he has been homeless for six years, and the coronavirus lockdowns have made life more difficult for him, as businesses where he would usually use the bathroom are now closed. That’s how he came up with Saturday’s video, which was titled “Poopalosi,” protesting people in power like Pelosi, whose lives haven’t changed much.
“I’d been hunting for a toilet all week, and the joke came up in the comments on one of my streams that ‘Hey, you should take a crap at Pelosi’s house,’” Mando said. “Everyone was enjoying the idea of it, and eventually I just couldn’t hold it anymore.”
The video begins with Mando wandering the streets of San Francisco as he looked for Pelosi’s home. Once he found it, he set up a camera across the street before he stood in her driveway for several minutes. He then salutes his viewers and proceeds to squat down to relieve himself on the driveway’s pavement.
“That was for President Trump,” Mando said after he was finished. (Warning—foul imagery ahead):
He later explained that this was meant to be “satire,” and that he’s “not really very political.” However, he is happy about what Trump has accomplished in office, and he is scared about rising crime and the state of the country.
“I fear America is becoming one big burned-down city,” Mando said.
Mando has since apologized to Pelosi on Twitter.
“@SpeakerPelosi I know you may not ever see this but I want you to know, I meant no foul harm yesterday when I did what I did. I’m not proud of it at all and I just would like for you to know that,” he wrote. “I have no ill will against you or anyone in an elected officials position.”
However, he does hope that his “peaceful protest” will inspire lawmakers to do more to help the homeless.
“What better way to show someone the message, you know?” he said. “We need more access to bathrooms, we need more access to resources out here.”
