New Delhi. US Speaker Nancy Pelosi was at the center of worldwide discussion about her visit to Taiwan. But apart from this tour, his Fake Love Story is also very much discussed. An alleged wedding picture of them is currently going viral on the internet. In this picture, the speaker of the US House of Representatives is seen with Chinese journalist Hu Shijin. But this story is completely fake. Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan caused a political and diplomatic stir around the world. There was also a strong reaction from the Chinese government. In addition to the arguments in favor and against the visit and US support for Taiwan, there are now false claims and fake content floating on the Internet. Among other things, the story of Pelosi’s marriage to a Chinese journalist is a story that should not be taken seriously.
Sharing the wedding picture, it is being claimed that when Nancy was young, she married Chinese journalist Shijin. But Deutsche Valle (DW) found in fact check that this picture was made with Photoshop. In this, two old pictures of both have been kept together. On one side of the picture is young Nancy Pelosi, who is seen in the original picture, while Shijin, seen next, is not in the original picture, but Nancy’s family. The original picture shows Nancy’s father Thomas D’Alejandro Jr., an American politician. Pelosi posted this photo on Flickr with the caption, With family as a young girl. The picture is also on their campaign page.
The second picture is of Young Hu Shijin. A reverse image search found a tweet by a Chinese journalist himself writing about his time in the Chinese military (Year for Unforgettable) and it shows the same image used in the purported wedding photo.
Pelosi is much older than Shijin
Talking about the age difference between Pelosi and Shijin, Pelosi is 82 years old and Shijin is 20 years younger than her. Pelosi is in the original photo with post-1960 US President John F. Kennedy. Whereas in 1960, Shijin was born.
