House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lost her mind during a press conference where she demanded retribution over what she is calling a “set up” at a San Francisco hair salon where the speaker was caught prancing around without a mask on.
Pelosi on Wednesday demanded an apology from the owner of ESalonSF after surveillance footage captured Pelosi getting her hair done inside the salon – despite the fact that according to local Coronavirus restrictions – that is not allowed.
Pelosi, rather than admitting her wrongdoing, blamed the salon entirely while pitching some conspiracy that the owner was out to get her and “set her up.”
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I have been to many times,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday. “When they said they could accommodate people one at a time, and we can set up that time, I trusted that.”
She added: “As it turns out, it was a set up. So I take responsibility for falling for a set up.”
“The salon owes me an apology for setting me up,” she added.
Pelosi tried to glaze over the fact that she wasn’t wearing a mask while walking around the salon – claiming that it was okay because she was washing her hair.
“I just had my hair washed. I don’t wear my mask when I’m washing my hair,” she said. “Do you wear one when you wash your hair?”
President Trump meanwhile blasted Pelosi for “constantly lecturing everyone else” on COVID-19 guidelines and then failing to abide by them.
“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,” the president tweeted Wednesday. “We will almost certainly take back the House, and send Nancy packing!”
Salon Owner Erica Kious responded to Pelosi’s accusation that Kious “set up” Pelosi calling it “absolutely false,” and added that leftists have hurled death threats at her over exposing Pelosi’s hypocrisy.
Kious told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that Pelosi was serviced by an independent stylist who rents chairs in her salonand that she decided to share the now-viral security camera footage when she found the Speaker indoors without a mask in what she called a “hurtful” display of hypocrisy.
“There was no way I could’ve set that up,” Kious said in response to Pelosi. “I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in and set her up. So that is absolutely false.”
Kious said she had no intention of making a political statement by releasing the footage, but emphasized that Pelosi’s cavalier appearance in her salon “was more hurtful” than anything else.
“This isn’t even political,” she stressed. “She’s been coming in there … it’s the fact that she actually came in, didn’t have a mask on, and I just thought about my staff and people not being able to work and make money and provide for their families, and if she is in there comfortably without a mask and feeling safe, then why are we shut down? Why am I not able to have clients come in?”
“Since this has happened, I have received nothing but hate text messages, death threats, [saying that] they’re going to burn my hair salon down,” she said. “My Yelp page is just unbelievable with bad reviews.”
Kious said she will likely be forced to leave the area now after the backlash she received.
“It’s just sad that my community is pulling this … saying that I threw her under the bus when I didn’t,” Kious said. “So that’s hurtful, but yeah, I think I’m pretty much done now.”
