Nancy Pelosi got a blowout at a San Francisco salon closed under COVID rules since March and was filmed inside the store without a mask, footage released Tuesday shows.
She’s so unbelievable and a hypocrite.
In the clip taken at eSalon in the city Monday afternoon and obtained by Fox News, the Democrat is seen with wet hair and her mask around her neck rather than on her face, as she is followed closely behind by a stylist, who is in a face covering.
Salons in San Francisco have been closed since March and were only told they could reopen Tuesday; they can still only offer outside styling. In June Pelosi said a federal mandate on mask-wearing was ‘long overdue’.
Pelosi’s spokesperson told Fox News: ‘This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment.’
Conservatives pounced, casting Pelosi as a hypocrite. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted: ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’
‘Speaker Pelosi has pushed policies that would keep our economy closed and our small businesses shut down. But for herself?’ Senate Republicans tweeted. ‘A salon visit whenever she pleases.’
Salon owner Erica Kious rents out chair space to independent stylists, including the one who styled Pelosi.
She told Fox: ‘It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work.
‘I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen. I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income.’
Mom of two Kious said she received a message from one of the independent stylists on Sunday night to say the Democrat’s team had been in touch about an appointment.
She added: ‘We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing.
‘We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down.’
