President Trump wasted no time in delivering an epic scolding to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following the release of security footage that shows she violated coronavirus mandates to visit a San Francisco hair salon.
If you remember, Pelosi herself, speaking with ABC News back in June, really hammered on President Trump for not wearing a mask during the pandemic and for not issuing a nationwide mask mandate.
“Crazy Nancy Pelosi is being decimated for having a beauty parlor opened, when all others are closed, and for not wearing a Mask – despite constantly lecturing everyone else,” he tweeted on Wednesday. “We will almost certainly take back the House, and send Nancy packing!”
In a Tuesday report from Fox News, eSalon owner Erica Kious said Pelosi visited her salon on Monday. Kious released security camera footage of the visit.
Kious noted she rents salon space to stylists and that she “can’t control” what those stylists do.
“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,” Kious stated. “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right?”
Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, stated that she was adhering to the coronavirus restrictions and guidelines provided to her by the salon.
“The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. 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,” the spokesman said in his statement.
Don’t you just love the hypocrisy, here? Must be nice to be part of the elite, privileged class and be able to pick and choose what laws and mandates you want to obey. This, folks, is only a taste of what they’d love to do if given absolute power. Let that roll around in your head.
